Hints & Tips
Did some thing give you inspiration for your project / action / enterprise?
Always important for me was the passion for creation. And being human. In manufacturing fashion I give creativity a practical dimension. And I can give joy to others.
Reaching memory back I can see a number of events with the result that I had to be manufacturer of fashion. Children's play turned into a hobby for a long time and had to stay there. And I became a ... translator. For nearly a decade perfectly delivered in my profession of dreams. I wrote a specialised dictionary, I translated at interesting conferences and meetings "behind closed doors". The pace of work was crazy. And I already had a little baby. Finally appeared more and more often questions about what I wanted and so on? The answer was negative. It awoke in me a spirit of enterprise - I wanted to start work on a larger scale than ever before. After a few weeks of arduous analysis, sudden glare - yes! My fashion! This will be my new industry. If I am ever dissatisfied with the offer of Polish clothing market, it will create a brand that is synonymous with these things, which I can not buy, which is simple in cut, but unusual, in muted colors, but not without style, with woven natural fibers, but not at a high price. My customers will also be able to count on the fit of the model to their body from simple shortening of length, and up to the sewing of the model taking into account all dimensions of customers ... And I will smile to them from the heart, not only in accordance with the regulations. Fashion Manufacturer debuted on the market in November 2010. Today is steadily growing number of clients and a group of Friends from other companies with which it forms a good team. Join us! You are welcome!
Suggestions and advice to give to women :
YOU must clearly indicate the boundaries of your "I", to define its value to myself and to believe that everything is possible, and most is what seems to be crazy and unrealistic
