If these babies could talk....
Anyone who knows me, knows I like the color red. To me, red is fire, passion, strength, and power. It reminds me to be thankful of a beating heart and to bring that power and energy to everything I do.
A couple weeks ago, I was off to Los Angeles for LA Fashion Week. I decided to wear my favorite sneakers. Why not?! When I arrived, I wanted to embrace the city as I often do when I travel. See the famed sites and find the areas that are insta-worthy! Yeah.. sometimes we all do it for the Gram... LOL! Hollywood, Santa Monica, the Angle Wings project sites. Fitting it all in with as many casting calls as possible was the challenge, but not to worry. I was armed with the walking reminder that my power, energy, and passion make it all happen.
My red kicks took me everywhere. With my modeling experience, I knew to bring several shoe changes and be prepared to compliment any look the designers wanted. I spent time with the press. I connected with fashion and photography notables and it was amazing. Funny enough, the center of almost every conversation was my red sneakers. Every designer I worked with insisted I wear my red sneakers while on the runway! My bold energy was contagious.
As I reflected on my trip I realized, people equated me with the message of my fashion choice. Red is a bold color and you have to be bold in this industry. You have to be courageous enough to be told 'no'. Be resilient enough to push through the roadblocks. And be focused enough to claim your dreams. And that's in any industry.
Stay tuned for footage from LA Fashion Week and my bold moves.
