This is the third and final part of a series of posts recalling my going back to school and today I’ll be wrapping up and giving you a glimpse of what’s in store for the future.
One of the biggest reason I wanted to go back to school was to get help creating and launching my project. This special year was truly a blessing because it gave me time to learn, experiment and practice my creative skills something that would have been hard to do on my own.
Now that I’ve showed you all the creative process behind the making of my finale collection, let’s talk about the more practical aspect of the project.
So, at first, the main question was: how do I get to live a creative life and be part of the fashion world, while staying aligned with my ethical conscience without relying on a lot of financial help?
As much as I love the creative process behind the fashion industry, it’s not without its problems. Factories are overproducing, wasting a lot of natural ressources and treating human lives badly.
This is not something I want to support and be part of.
And let’s not forget that it has been increasingly difficult for new independent designers to bypass the system and make it on their own. Producing a whole collection yourself isn’t really financially viable nowadays.
But there’s a solution!
