To whom it may concern.

40 years I was a fashion designer.
I created a few millionaires in my days with my talent, now I can’t ever get through the door
My last position was at Femme de Carriere.

My best employment was at Style Queen.
Indeed I felt like a queen…He was a crazy man but he made me feel appreciated.
That was the most spacial feeling one can ever get… to be heard and to be allowed freedom of expression..
.Those three years in the service of her majesty, took away my will to ever serve again.

My best employment was at Style Queen.

That was the most spacial feeling one can ever get… to be heard and to be allowed freedom of expression..

Anyone familiar with the company  can see how spot on I was.
Every single day, a buyer would come and re-order.
Along with the compliments I would get on my fit and taste of merchandising…. How uplifting..Along with the creative aspect, my responsibilities included taking care of ordering fabric, estimates and dealing with contractors.
Yes it was a job for four other people, but he could not afford them so I took on the challenge.
I’m the choreographer, photographer and editor as well  (All in a days work.. never asked for a penny extra)
It was all done out of love for the craft …. not the love of money.
Unfortunately the mishandling of monetary affairs, made my stay only two short years.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now I get prices before I present the order.
Not even asking what I was selling.
Is this the way we give chances, and make our economy grow?
I pity younger generation, for they are responsible for the destruction of the commerce.
As a designer I always believed that the person made the dress….. not the other way.
You can dress a woman with a million dollar dress…. and she’ll look like a dollar       or
                    Dress her in a dollar dress… and …she’ll wear it like it’s a million
Following my untimely dismissal from FDC…..it started to sink in……my carrier as a designer is over.
I was 54,, and my memory started to tank…What CAN I DO TO SURVIVE?…Let me tell you something.
The government does not like people who think… They offered me welfare..
I gave it every thought as to what I can do..I was running out of options…
I was in debt up to my eyeballs ……  my unemployment was about to end.
At 5 am..my phone started to ring …..I was sure it wasn’t Publishing Clearing House calling.

One thing I was also  good at…. was giving shoulder and neck massages to all my pears.
After all, this was a crazy business….. and I knew first hand I needed massages to bring my blood pressure down.

One of my than superiors said to me….”Pussycat”..(His nick name for me)…”Forget the fashion industry it’s over”
You do great massage …why don’t you buy a table and I’ll send you some clients..”
He never did … but I was getting things moving anyway..
Remember neck and shoulders?…I quickly learned that it wasn’t so…yet I quickly saw how fast I was catching up with my bills.
I was over $30.000 in debt, yet the word bankruptcy never entered my mind.
I have no other credit cards except for Visa…It is payed in full……
I rolled up my sleeves, shortened my name… and never looked back…
Yet my passion for creating and helping, is something that keeps burning in my brains my entire life.
From that time on… I took trips that I never believe I could…. and they were not on sunny beaches..
Eric as a business developer I believe you would have been impressed with what I have created..All debt free.
I spend thousands of dollars to develop my collection(S), and saved millions by doing all the creative part myself.
From every drawing to every execution…..I created my own web sites…

 I was given no choice..
Nothing gave me more determination than running into greed and deception on every aspect of my development,
waiting to destroy my spirit, on every corner.
How else could I have created all of this?…..Not by waiting to have it done.
I realized that my passion was mine alone and I need to be independent.
Never took a computer course. I was somehow directed by some force, to learn and execute every aspect of it.
And it is amazing I can assure you.
