Clean-up and talk of TED in Vancouver

August 29, 2009

Hi all! Thanks for visiting my blog! Did’ya notice? I did a bit of cleaning up, re-naming the mess known as my categories. About time. I’m starting to take this thing known as blogging a little more seriously. I had lofty goals when I started. I wanted to change the fashion world with my blog, one post at a time. No, really, haha. That’s everyone’s dream when they start blogging, eh?

I wanted a way to take everything I was learning and observing of the world and the changes it is going through (and wow, are there changes…) and connect it with fashion so that when I start out in the real world, what I do is reflective of what I believe. I was already selfish enough to choose a career path that I fell in love with, so the rest of my life is an opportunity for me to be a little more selfless, in using what I have to do something for the world through fashion beyond creating excess waste. I am attracted to the idea of being a contrarian. I think fashion needs more contrarians; I think that we especially need contrarians with ideas worth spreading, not just contrarians with the cool factor and exuberant personalities. Speaking of ideas worth spreading, I heard that TED is coming to Vancouver this fall. Ted is not my boyfriend’s name. TED, if you don’t already know, is this. Really, truly. If that’s the case, I would love to go. I think they’re opening a call for speakers.
