Back in September, half way through fashion week, I had given up the accumulated dreams of attending fashion week. I had emailed PR representatives, labels and publications for weeks and hardly received a response. “Maybe next time”, I thought. At first, it really bothered me, it was too late, there was nothing I could do.
I was fresh out of college, living in New Hampshire with my parents at the time and struggling to find a job. I had just recently been dumped, and my own motivation to “prove myself” knew no bounds.
I was in the middle of dinner in my parent’s screen porch, and I felt calm- I had finally accepted that it wasn’t going to happen this round, but it was okay.
Did I mention the porch doesn’t have Wifi?
The second I walked back inside the house to wash the dishes, my emails updated.
And there it was, my golden ticket- a seven word email.
“please send Julia invites to all shows”.
The next morning I was on the earliest bus to New York City, then I received my official invites.
Here are a few of the images from my first ever fashion show: Assembly New York
