My closet is like my inspiration space

Your closet is obviously amazing, what are some of the prized possessions in your closet?
Probably pieces from our first runway shows. Pieces you wore once that you could never part with. My closet is like my inspiration space. Things that I love and enjoy and I always get inspired. So there's not a particular piece. I can't pick. - Lebov Azaria

How Fashion Became about Power, and Lost its Ability to Dream | James Scully | #BoFVOICES

Kinda long for a youtube video but extremely important to think about. Not only within the fashion industry but in life. When we become exclusive we loose begin to loose fantasy and push people to the raw edge of their emotional well-being.  If we begin to stop and listen to people's stories and behave with kindness we can begin to evolve creatively outside our own image.

Due date

This is my last time signing up for a tuition payment plan.  This is the last first payment of the semester. However, it is not the last time I thank my mother. College is expensive. Sickenly expensive. So why did I do it? I did it, because I had been cleaning houses for as long as I could remember. I wanted a better shot of never needing to do it again. Now that I am almost out I realize that the bills are gonna come, and at the end of the day someone is going to paying them. One day I really hope that I can do it on my own,  but truthfully today is not that day. I look back at my mother who goes to work every day doing the one thing I am trying to avoid to pay for my opportunity. And I don't tell her enough how thankful I am.  When I walk down the runway, and across the stage in may I will not be celebrating my success. Honestly, I will celebrate hers.
