First thing first: I am not a morning person!... so my best thinking, ideas, strategies, plans, always come at night & very rarely in the morning. No surprise for anyone that knows me a little. I can stay up for very long period of time while the Western Hemisphere as gone to bed and be perfectly contempt. It gives me time to explore, observe, digest and process and essentially stay ‘’current”. It keeps me alive, connected and spirited. I will not overly do it because I refuse to become obsess over trends. It isn’t about that! I am not a hipster, I am a Gen X kid.
Back onto the creative process! Today I was attempting to fix a last minute wedding outfit for a girl... I know it is early (1pm) I just could not!... I just finished prom season, Grand Prix fund raiser, etc.... and I have a mountain of summer pieces still unfinished and a brand new website with a new assistant, Alexandra ... just could not do this last minute wedding request! I am an artist : not a retailer : not a seamstress : not a robot and at times, a miracle worker... I can be very fairy like but you call me today and you are leaving at 4h and you want me to fix you a wedding party dress!!!!!
I AM A FAIRY but I cannot do that....it is too last minute, it gives me no time. I actually tried but as I was trying to fix it, I came to realise that what was ask of me was not possible and it was not for me to do... so I decide to write my daily note about it because my creative process for making each piece is EXACTLY like when I paint and you cannot produce a painting, even more so commissioned work under pressure within a few hours. I certainly cannot create a wedding dress in a demi couture technique within a few hours either... to be continued...
