There’s been a dispute in my mind.
An argument I seem to have lost and won.
This post is as a result of my new goal to be a bit personal on the blog once in a while. We are all human beings go through phases, emotions, ups and downs in this rollercoaster ride called life. Continue reading “On Remaining on the Fence – ambiversion”
This aspect of fashion designing I’m going to take you through, is the more artistic side of perfecting your model or template — the face.
In my early days of designing, I left my designs faceless because I hated drawing faces.

I should have done this as my first Fashion Designing post, but it’s better late than never.
I’ve had a lot of people commend me on my drawing, saying how good it is and how they can’t draw like that. Let me tell you a story.
Once upon a time, I could draw, and that was during my childhood. I stopped drawing for a period of about 6 years and it was like I couldn’t draw to save my life. I left drawing for so long and drawing left me. Continue reading “A Guide to Fashion Designing – Motivation before you start”
