I haven’t been able to post on my blog in awhile….but I wanted to share a wonderful experience I gained this weekend. Soo as you may know I’m based in Atlanta, Ga. On this past weekend Lenox Square Mall hosted a Live Look Book Fashion show alongside GQ and Glamour Magazine. Let me tell you, I’m thankful that I had a chance to witness this event in person.
During on of the intermissions I got a chance to speak with one of the bloggers from GQ Magazine by the name of Josh Aaron. I explained to him what I do now and just wanted advice on how to advance my craft within the industry and here’s what he had to say:
1). Make sure you are surrounded by like-minded people who are within the industry you hope to work in.
2). Make sure the events you attended are in-lined to what it is you are trying to do.
3). Network, Network, Network.
4). Create lasting relationships with people who know your work and will recommend you for different events.
5) Have a portfolio of your work, let them see what you can do.
6). Never Give it. It wont come over night but continue to work hard for what it is you want.
Coming from a man who works for the best male Magazine in life, I listened with great anticipation.
Moving on, let me tell you a little about the fashion show. The show was intended to give a sneak preview in all the latest trends for the upcoming spring and summer months. They did everything from casual to black tie apparel. They even gave great styling tips on how to match patterns and even layer your outfits. I was able to get a few pictures from the event and a lifetime of knowledge.
In conclusion, if there is something that you want to do…JUST DO IT. Be willing to put in the amount of time and effort in order to get where you need to be. Keep Going you can do and if it takes you out of your comfort zone you are on your way to GREAT THINGS
