I guess you can say I have a unique style, I won’t be painted into a corner with regards to what I will wear. I mean, why would I follow the Dos and Don’t posts or Hottest Looks of the Season articles that tell us how we should dress. Do I really want to look like every other subscriber to the blog? It could make for an awkward afternoon if we all met at the same cafe.
As a budding fashion designer, I understand how important it is to have a sense of identity, even if it means to be inclusive in a trend. There is nothing wrong with how fashion bloggers comment on trends or fashion, in fact I think this is an important aspect of the fashion trade. Fashion designers follow what bloggers say, and bloggers dictate the latest trends through their posts. The entire fashion trade has been turned onto its head.
I realize it is super hard to get into the fashion business and I suspect my fashion brand (Michael Jaccarino) will never be as big as Calvin, Tommy, or Michael but that isnt reason for me to back down. Its more of a reason for me to get up and fight! The House of Michael Jaccarino will become something great one day. I know that, and my teachers recognize my desire to win.
