_______________! Dream !_______________

By Cindy A.

When i was a little girl, nobody taught me how to draw. Naturally i picked up a pencil and a piece of paper and found my passion in life. I would always draw girls with pretty clothes and had a little fashion world of my own. Art was already in my blood. I told my mother that my dream was to be a fashion designer. I enjoyed every art classes i had in my primary school days. My favorite pastime was exploring my mum's closet and makeups when shes not around. I studied art in secondary school even though my grades could get me into a science class. The art teacher was a nightmare, she expected 200% of me all the time and made my life so miserable. But i hung on and got through it because i really loved art too much to give up. 

Things changed. 

Sometimes, life doesn't happen the way you planned it. I had no choice but to chuck this passion aside. My family was going through a crisis and i had to make a smarter decision at that time. Studying fashion was a luxurious thought. Singing and performing arts were my loves too but i could never do those things with so much difficulties life had on my family. I chose animation/motion graphics as my career path instead because it was simply just more of a realistic choice for me in Singapore. The easy way out. All these fruitful years being a designer of a different kind opened up my life in a different way and i wouldn't regret it at all.

I'm truly blessed.

But some love just don't go away like that.

Fashion had always been in the back of my mind. I had no background or whatsoever and never got to study it when i was younger. I knew it was too late to start all over now. But i just love it so much. I don't want to regret about all the things i could have done but didn't do. I am still young. I wondered... then i realized i could actually do styling instead of designing clothes. I could use this blog as a platform to share my fashion style with you guys. I'm doing fashion, in my own time in my own way in my own little space. At least it is making up for a childhood dream that i never get to fulfill. I'm glad that i did it.
