This year I had the pleasure of being a part of LA fashion week. I’ve walked small runways before (the non-catwalk types) but this was way bigger than I had expected. I walked for two designers in the first show I did for Project Ethos, and then another at Style Fashion Week. It was super intimidating to walk in and see that huge runway, and then walk into style fashion week two days later and realize that the first one I walked was a baby in comparison. People say that LA fashion week is not a big deal, however I thought it was pretty intense. Both days were super exciting, the first was a brand new experience for me, and while I went to the second one more comfortable, I was taken by surprise about the size of the venue and amount of people.
So here’s the lesson I learned kiddies; do stuff that scares you. I know that last year, in all my awkwardness, I would not have been able to do something like this. Even this year, being there made me super awkward and uncomfortable, but once I got past all those fears, I had a lot of fun and met some really lovely people. Also for a person as nervous as I was, I think I killed on that runway. So anyways, do things that inspire and terrify you, put those fears aside, and you might be very pleased with the result.
