Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
If you’re not familiar with Redress Raleigh, Get Familiar! They are doing a great sustainability fashion movement here in the North Carolina Wake County area, and I’m just blessed to be a part of it and that I was picked! As one of the designers to strut their designs down the Runway Coming this Fall,
November 16th, 2013, at the Durham Armory!
Jamie on the left and Beth on the right, Mor was in LA, but they are the owners & masterminds behind Redress Raleigh! An honor to be in their presence.
As all interviews it can be a bit nerve racking. Did I ask the right questions did I say enough? Did I say too much? All these questions can go through your head and I’m just thankful I’ve worked hard to get my vision for Natural True Beauty’s Fall Collection into reality! Thank you Jesus.
I also didn’t go unprepared, thank the Lord, I managed to create wonderful pieces before the interview and also have a wonderful photo-shoot which also brought the designs to life. I also developed a neat simple packet of my inspiration and the looks. I’ve also showed Redress Raleigh something a little extra. Eco Friendly SCARVES! To go with the Collection! I’m just ecstatic and excited for this opportunity and if you are wondering what these scarves may look like, why not attend the Fashion Show!! That’s were you will see them first!
Last year, I wasn’t picked and it just goes to show if you don’t get discouraged, and you believe in your heart that you are meant to do what you’re meant to do. Doing it with all your heart, with all the challenges that come in the way and all the opportunities, taking the good with the bad, that just makes you that much more capable, that much more better. I’ve learned so much and to be honest the Greatest Lesson I’ve learned this season is,
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps. Proverbs 16:9
I hope that what ever dream God has placed in your heart, that you take this little blog post as an example that GOD can open the right doors. Don’t ever Give up and Don’t ever Give in. There’s a reason why you have the talents that you have. There’s a reason why you have that passion in your heart. And when you do it with all your heart for GOD nothing is in vain. When you do it with passion & Love God will most definitely Guide your steps. Just Believe.
Thank you Redress Raleigh for this wonderful opportunity. Thank you Jesus for Guiding me. For always being there even in the trying times.
