How do you make the most out of the assets that you have been given, as opposed to being a slave under trends created for the 20 year olds? Creativity with limitations is a challenge that I’m facing and that I’m exploring!!
I love quality textile! So this is also about how I’m using my love for textile when adding to my wardrobe both from buying and from creating clothes with my own design. How I search and find the things that inspire and energize me when it comes to style and fashion.
