|That's blonde me, on the runway! To the right of me, Lina is modeling my designs.|
I went to school for fashion design. When I was just an aimless teenager, my mom decided I needed a hobby. She was probably right. For Christmas one year she picked up an simple, yet fateful blue sewing machine. On Christmas Eve that year, I just so happened to be sewing a quilt for my then boyfriend (now husband <3), when our ancient family sewing machine broke. Well, luckily, my mom was able to save the day by giving me my gift early. By doing so, she not only saved the world from ending (as it would have if I had not finished his gift in time), but also gave me freedom to discover my passion.

Fashion school was a fun, hard, confusing, wonderful but unrealistic segeway to the real world. Dreams you have in college often remain dreams. One thing I can say, though, is the friends I made are friends for life. This week, I was lucky enough to do a guest blog post on a fellow fashion alum's blog. Check out my post on the passion behind the bumble!
As a side note, the model in my first picture, Lina, has also been quite successful! From fashion design to shoes! She has her own company now :) http://www.linazeineddine.com/
