“She walks the earth freely, yet her feet never touch the ground. Many hands will reach for her, but she cannot be anchored. She belong to no one, to nothing, to nowhere. When you meet her, you will recognise her for who she is; a free spirit, a wandering star and she will show you what it’s like to hold something you can never hold onto.” -Lang Leav
If most of you don't know this by now just yet, recently I just launched my own haute-couture brand. Someone asked me on an interview back in my college days, a little throwback wouldn't hurt anybody "What's the best feeling of being a fashion designer?" Simple, seeing what you design from scratch and through those processes comes to life and for today’s archive, I’m wearing one of our pieces. A sophisticated one shoulder gown with ruching details never go out of style, in other words; timeless. For your information, ruching is a French term which means to gather or ruffle to make it look like pleats. Funny story how this used to be one of the fashion design techniques me and my classmates used to hate the most because it's so time consuming and well you need to be really precise and neat while doing it! Turns out hate turns to like, and like turns to love. Anyway, make sure to check out @couturebycck on Instagram, apologize for the lack of posts there since I'm busy working on some other stuffs related, promise to get back on track soon! Crossing fingers.
Reminiscing the past, I remembered my first archive introduction in this blog and that's exactly 3 years ago, cut to the chase; I said “In the future, I would like to take major in fashion design or fashion marketing! It is one of my dream to be a fashion designer, fashion stylish, fashion buyer; anything related to fashion just count me in! Fast-forward more than a decade, fashion and I are inextricably interconnected so to top it all off I am going to pursue it by making a fashion blog first and hoping that I can make my own brand one day. You can call me the girl with big dreams...” Hey, look at me now. Another bucketlist checked? Doesn’t mean I’m satisfied with where I am at this point, it’s just a beginning of a new chapter, a new adventure. The best view comes after the hardest climb, am I right? I’ve seen a lot of people starting up their own business, their own brand. They say it’s easy peasy, just make a trademark logo, social media platform of it’s own, merchantable product in the global market and bon appétit! In this modern life, everything intricate seems “achievable” but consistency on keeping it interesting are what I feel matters the most. Just a random thought though, there are no rules in life. You don’t get “special points” for achieving things by a deadline. It will work in it’s own time, just go at your own pace, your own speed. It’s not a race. Don’t you agree?
