“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” Rabindranath Tagore
I designed this dress with the intention of it being a one of a kind, just for me. To be worn only by me. I get to do that when I own the company, right?
Having a clothing company means I spend all this time and energy thinking about what my customers want, what will sell the best, and what will be timeless but also ahead of the trends. Basically, while I design every collection with myself in mind, it’s never for me. It’s for all of you. So, I was going to design something that simply stated, I wanted.
I designed the dress to wear to my friend’s wedding where I was both her wedding planner and a guest. Yes, dear Amy, you are so special and important that I designed a dress to wear just for your wedding.
I should know by now that if I love something and have fun wearing it, others will too. I’m telling you, when I walk around in it, it’s like I’m walking in the clouds. And after having guests and friends show interest in the dress, I realized that I needed to let others experience walking in the clouds.
While the exact dress wont be for sale, a slightly modified version will be offered on my website. I promise to keep you updated on that. And in my next blog post, I’ll actually go through the entire process, from start to finish, on how I designed this dress.
