To tell you the truth…
I’m torn between focusing solely on developing my brand’s presence and finding a job at a reputable footwear company. At the same time having a six piece Spring/Summer collection with the most gorgeous crimson & beautiful black leather uppers still seems to sit pretty at the top of my list! Six seems to be on the smaller scale for a footwear collection, but for someone looking to have her first ever editorial photoshoot, I think it’s just right.
This collection called The Grunge Meet Up brings together the seduction of a spiked crimson slingback sandal,
the sexiness when transformed into a beautiful black studded slipper,
the assertiveness of the modern lady in a stylish mule,
and finally, the earth-shattering boldness of a pointed-toe studded mid-calf boot.
How long it’s gonna take is another tale yet to be discovered. I plan on having a fully functional footwear collection for display by the end of April 2019, leaving me a good amount of time to think up and execute a jaw-dropping editorial shoot before the summer begins to unravel. Fingers crossed.
Having to execute a plan this outlandish would mean either having the adequate funding from the start or having a constant source of income to support all forthcoming expenses. If you’ve read my recent blog post- The Struggles Of Building A Footwear Brand you’ll understand why money serves as a constant obstacle. With that being said, seeing as I have no investors and will be solely funding my startup, it’s safe to say I’ll be putting in those hours at work and piling up as much loose change as I can find to support my shoemaking and brand-building journey. In the meantime, I will also be building up my list of clientele so that I may start to profit off of my passion.
P.S. I’ll let you in on a little secret. You can checkout the Crimson leather slingback here. I’ll leave it all up to your imagination to picture the slipper, mule and boots come to life 😉
