There was wine and cheese and fashion students with a sense of accomplishment at the Made in Philadelphia studio. We were done (!!!) we presented our final pieces to our darling instructor and Founder of Made in Philadelphia, Rachel Ford. It was not haute couture but for some it was our first dress. It was my first dress! I was gratified to be able to wear and really love something I made myself. We were all from different walks of life; photographers, public relations, business professionals and nurse (me!) to name a few, surrounded by like minded individuals. More than ever, I found a sense of purpose in my life and inspired by the women I encircled myself with who had the strength to step into the unknown. Walking into the unknown can really put a stop to changes in a person’s life. What I’ve learned: dream a big idea and then take those big ideas and break them down into smaller steps and the big goals suddenly become more manageable. Maybe this dress can be the start of my dream big idea. Thank you Rachel and fashion friends for inspiring me, it was one of my favorite nights in Philly.
