I had the pleasure of seeing Diane Von Furstenberg speak at Georgetown University on Monday.
She told her life story, and how she made it as she has today. And it was just amazing, because a long with her speech she would put photos up on slides, to really emphasize her point and to tell a wonderful story. She has had such a lucrative career in fashion while also changing it up from books to cosmetics, which I previously knew nothing about. Not only did she tell her story, but she truly did inspire me. And on that note here are some things that really stuck with me:
"important to have clarity... to love what you do. It's important to make sense, and if you don't believe in it, it won't work"
" Clarity + Strategy = Success"
"Generosity is the best investment.. it protects your karma" - on working with Vital Voices.
" The most important relationship is with yourself".
She really did inspire me, and makes me want to be a designer of that scale. And I refuse to let anyone stop me!! :)
- My 21st birthday was last weekend, still not sure if I want to put pictures up from them, but they're on my facebook account, not my sourtang page. :) But maybe pictures to come just to show what I wore.
- This week has just been super uber inspirational with spoken poetry from the Asia Project , really got me thinking about my life and all the things going on in it. And then my first happy hour, with one of my best friends Maria.. she reminds me of all the things I want to do. And how I don't need someone to hold me back. But its hard when you just like someone or that uncertainty of my own feelings.
Truly, missing commenting on everyone's lovely blogs, and thank you everyone for the amazing comments, and support! And also pictures from fashion events to come. I've also been more inspired to work on my personal projects, and not devoting my entire present to school work.
