I got into fashion for the love of creating garments that conveyed elegance, and that brought out the beauty in every women. But, fashion these days also has missed the point. Nowadays anybody who picks out a pin, button or print thinks they can call themselves a designer - IT JUST DOESN'T WORK LIKE THAT! And it's a shame! Take for instance my students, when they go out into the real world who do the jobs go to? Some A, B or C list celebrity putting their name on something that they didn't design. All they had to do was approve it. Jobs that should be going to real, talented designers go to these fake/poser designers looking to make a quick buck.
I want to finish with this - some of you out there have expressed that you don't feel beautiful until you put on one of my designs (it's an honor that my designs make you feel that way), but you are all beautiful, please you must know that, and that you must wear the clothes and not the other way around. What I mean by that is, you can wear a turkish towel and some pearls as long as you exude confidence - anything can work. Believe in yourself and others will too! Reclaim your power from societies imaginary and unattainable standards and live your life in power not defeat, Simonton Says.
Take care for now.
