You may be wondering, what is the purpose of this fashion blog written by a teenager?
This blog is an experiment.
Over the past three years or so I have been super-glued to my sewing machine. Throughout 2020, including those deep and dark times of quarantine, I have self-taught and introduced myself into the wide world of fashion. Over time I have learned that fashion is not what it seems.
First of all, most people I talk to assume fashion is all about the catwalks, designer brands, and vibrant fabrics that catch the eye. And while this may be a beautiful part of fashion and garment design, there are many factors people overlook: the cost of the garment related to the wage price, the amount of work put into the garment, and the sheer amount of resources dedicated to hang on a hanger in your closet.
Where to begin?
A person in my situation of having a mind full of swirling ideologies can travel down many paths. I wanted to share my thoughts with others, something I wasn't quite able to do in my small-town environment. Even if this message I am creating through this website only gets through to a few people, I hope it can inform and educate. Sometimes it only takes a few to incite change. As a first-time blogger/website creator, I plan to constantly revise and add to this site in order to continuously form a better compilation of my thoughts.
What can you expect to see from this site?
This website is meant to be a hub for garment construction teachings, to personal ideas, facts, and random blurbs. Think of it as a Instagram hashtag with various posts all with the same main concept -- the hashtag's topic. (By the way I have created a Fashion Re-Form Instagram for my daily sewing.) The main point is to learn, think, and have fun!
