In the name of fashion

October 6, 2012
tags: ,

I have always liked fashion. My aunt was a seamstress and I had the best time going through her bag of scrap fabric when I visited her. I would make beautiful clothes for my dolls and sell other ones to kids in my neighborhood. In high school I used class time as my drawing sessions. Everyone liked them and thought that I should become a designer. A designer in Haiti? Even if fashion is much more en vogue now than when I lived in Haiti it is still very small and limited to a few people. At $50 for a Runaway Haiti show, you can imagine what kind of people are able to assist.Thanks to my friend I was able to attend twice without having to pay for entry. I am very happy to see it growing; slowly but surely.
