Word To Upcoming / Aspiring Fashion Designers

‘believe in yourself.’

I know that might sound clichéd but it’s the truth. I remember when I first started, even though most of my reviews were good, there were a few bad ones that hit me hard, but  because I believed in myself and what I do, I was able to overcome all the negativity.

This does not mean I ignore the negative comments; I think it’s important to always listen because I might gain something from it. I just learnt not to let it discourage me.
