After starting my intimates collections just 3 months ago, I can hardly believe the possitive response and support I've recieved, My customers and bloggers really do post the most beautiful images and feeedback, however, as with everything, with the good, always comes the bad. It's actually unbelievable how many people there are out there, who are in exactly the same boat as you, ready to judge and try and take you down. In an already competetive industry it's such a shame that people aren't willing to help one another! As a designer, I love to help people with ideas, and answer questions, After all, we're all in the same position, therefore are each others most helpful source of information and support! afterall.... can't we all just do well? and be happy for one another? I was surprised recently to find a number of brands i didn't even know existed were 'blocking' me on Instagram, I could have been one of their best customers! As a brand myself I am always happy promote other brands and I'm proud of the fact that I don't let other peoples negativity turn me into a bitter person.... a beautiful flower doesn't compete with the flower next to it.... it Just blooms. In search of some like minded people, also tryng to establish their own brand, I went with my sister Sinead crowe of www.lovestylemindfulness.co.uk to visit STALF STUDIOS of www.stalf.co.uk. Sinead, Paris and I sat drinking tea as time passed us by disscussing various new collaborations and exciting ideas for the future, as well as getting to check out her absolutely Beautiful Studio and some limited edition pieces!
It's amazing what brands can do for each other when they support one andother instead of competing....you should try it some time!
