Style is Saying Who You Are Without Having to Speak
When I was a little girl, I had several dolls but one doll was my very very favorite. I used to make clothes for my bear, named Jo-Jo. I remember one day I lost Jo-Jo at school and I made my father take me back to the school after it had closed for the day. We searched and searched, and finally I was able to locate Jo-Jo.
The interesting thing about Jo-Jo was that he was not a "Barbie" doll. He was a bear. So, his proportions were very much out of the norm for the normal clothes that were sold for dolls.
Several years ago, I started purchasing tailor made shirts, dresses, and pants from a local designer because I was tired of the clothing designs being offered in the market. I was so at awe with the art of fashion that I began to sew and make my own clothing soon after.
Fast forward, to 2015, consumers are constantly reminded that their bodies proportions don't fit into"society's" cookie-cutter beautiful, pretty, or sexy images. Today's fashions leave something to be desired often times and the expense seems outrageous.
When I started to brainstorm on what I should name my fashion line, I thought about the fashion worn by legends like Diana Ross, Elizabeth Taylor, Diahann Carroll, Audrey Hepburn, Josephine Baker, Billy Dee Williams, Hugh Grant, Harry Belafonte, and Sean Connery.
In my opinion, today's ready-to-wear fashion is lacking class and so many people struggle with what to wear, where to buy what looks good on them, and how to stay current with fashion.
I started The Rebirth of Style blog because I wanted to educate the masses on the origin of fashion trends that we see today. Almost every fashion trend dates back to Ancient or Medieval Times, and I wanted to make sure that all the modern day Fashionista's know that they are not doing anything new no matter how fabulous they are!
