New Focus for Pinkyfeather's Blog

I can only recall blogging about one fashion designer in the past - Emilio Pucci, due to some indescribable fascination with his patterns and colors after a rather random discovery, which is a shame because I am realizing that knowing the designers and creators of fashion is so much more important and insightful than knowing fashion trends themselves.  Their stories and points of view make up the industry, and they drive it forward to continuous wonders and dazzles.  They are absolutely fantastic both as real people and mysterious legends, and that is why I want to shift my focus of my blog a little bit.  I want to discover ALL the designers out there in the fashion world, and I want to learn about their stories, as a way to give myself motivation and inspiration.
Learning about designers' life stories and their journeys to fame and success is infectious.  After reading about the hardships they encounter, resistances from others, and the unbeatable passion they have to do what they love to do no matter what life throws at them, comforts me.  This world and this career path is not all glamour and glitz, and I am fulling aware of that.  There will be sweat and blood, there will be tears of joy and fear, and there will be haters and nay say-ers, but I am so excited, and I can't wait to be part of it.

So, you can count on learning more about various designers here in the future, but that is not to say that I won't write about trends and specific items at all though.   
After all that seriousness, a little humor:
