When we came out with the first issue, there was no way in my headspace or bandwidth to even contemplate a launch party. Such was the exhaustion I was feeling. I had never experienced such a brutal grueling schedule such as putting the launch issue together. Had I known how hard it would have been I would have shied away from it I am certain. In steps in my dear friend, Keith Wallace from world wide PR company Karla Otto. He kindly offered to host one for us as a thank you to all involved. What a smashing evening it was, from what I can remember. With great tunes from DJ Wolf, it was perfect. x
This is the office. A true grass roots start up. And this is some of the amazing team who have been by my side on this rollercoaster of a journey start to end. Amazing what you can achieve with no big budgets, staff or backing.
I am deeply blessed to have had these girls from Parsons and two volunteers, my fashion team, stick with this. Saturdays, Sundays, 10+ hours, 20+ hours, we never quit or gave up. Ever. Many talk the talk and don't walk the walk- well we did more than walk, jumped. With no net to catch us. And it's working. The most common sentence I hear is..'Wow, has this ever been done before? How can I help.?"
Tune...Joe Jackson, Steppin Out.
