For even he is now one of the most respectable in the Fashion world, he feet stay stay on the ground.
You might be wondering why... And what has this icon so praised , idolized and respected...
Few months ago, I collected all the courage I have to tweet him. Not knowing if he will spare a second of his time replying.
I even tried a direct message, unfortunately, since he is not a follower of mine, I can't.
Anyways, I still sent him a message by mentioning his user name.
In my surprised, while checking on my twitter account, I saw a message from him.
The first message I got is an advise and giving me hope to pursue my passion in fashion.
From that simple message, only God knows how much it made me realized that I also have something to share in my own little way.
From that simple message alone...it gave me an inspiration, the courage, the confidence I've been searching inside me.
And with the help of my daughter, Koko, who's been so supportive of me ever since ... I started to discussed my plan of having a fashion event... and now only my creations but also this objective of helping out other fresh designers.
By the way, I started pursuing this passion when I reached the age of 50...hahaha... Too late the hero it may seem but for me it's not the age I wanted to share but my creations.
Going back to my icon inspiration, who would be forever I be thankful to... we are now starting the process to a successful event. My first ever dream fashion show with all the other fresh designers...
This morning, I decided to send another message to him. To thank him for the inspirational message he gave me.
I know he is such a busy person, but I wanted to let him know that with his little deeds, he gave people the courage and confidence.
And for the second time, still I am not sure if he will reply or not.
Just after few minutes I sent it. I got another reply...
I so thank God that there are still so much blessed people who kept their feet on the ground.
A one simple word but means a lot to me. And I so thank him for another few seconds he spent for me...
He is none other than the owner of UNO and DOS perfume... Mr RAJO LAUREL.... :D
