This to shall pass...

Dear friends , what a strange and scary time we are going through . Sometimes it feels like we are in a horror movie , a thriller or something like that.:. But then we breath in slowly and say to ourselves that This to shall pass... After rain comes the sun and so life will get back to normal again...
 
So what have I been doing this past months of uncertainty? I can honestly say that I have continued my work pretty much the same as I work mostly from my home and only sometimes from my studio in the city... The little shop has been closed for some weeks now and it is sometimes pretty difficult to imagine how long time it will take to get back to bussiness again... But as a natural born Knitter patience is my force and I can only hope that all I have worked for , the love and faithfullness of my beautiful costumers will continue also after this horrible time...

I think that this is a feeling that runs through the whole fashion industry affecting us all in some scale , some more some less... 
 
 
So Dear friends I want to tell you about how it is for me to work as a designer , now and always...
Because it simply is like this...
 
The first thing that I think about in the morning when I wake up and the last thing that I think about when I go to sleep is design... Sometimes I even dream about my work...
 
My work is my passion and therefore a very big part of my life. I could not imagine myself doing any other thing than to create fashion...
I know that I have the fortune to work with my passion and God knows it is not an easy bussiness to work in , but I belive in what I do and I hope and think that all the love I put in every garment is reflectedin my work...
Right now in this difficult times that we all are living it is very easy to lose the belives in what you do , as difficult times tend to do... But you know what ?!?For me it is a trigger and makes me want to work even harder and make even more creations for the lovely women I have the fortune to call my friends and customers... I belive there is a light at the end...
 
And even how hard it is right now it doesn´t matter as this is my life and I live for this passion that is my work.
This is a lifestyle , I work 365 days of the year and I will continue as long as my life gives me the opportunity.  I don´t want to change it because then it would not be me ...
 
 
So Dear friends is it worth it ? I would say Yes again and again!!! It is a big price and a looot of work having your own bussiness . The sacrifices are many but the feeling when I see a happy customer wearing my design , the many stories told about lovely comments they get wearing something that I have created ,the contact I have with my customers , my lovely boutique  , I could continue giving reasons to why I love my work and this is a proof of that I am doing the right thing...
 
 
 
I hope to continue my work for many years ahead and I hope that you want to continue this journey with me...
Take care of you !
