New Seasons!

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a post. Too long. Embarrassingly long! The sad part is, everyday I wake up thinking about writing and I don’t. I must admit, I’ve been in a funk. 2016 hit me hard but I’m starting to realize that I’m the one making it worse by dwelling on things. It gets hard when you’re stuck. You tend to lose motivation and sight. But I refuse to let 2016 stop me. It’s been a tough year but it’s not too late to turn it around. We still have three more months.

With that being said…remember the 52 week challenge I wanted to participate in? Yea, the  one I completely failed at doing? Well wishful thinking right? Lol! Well like I said, we still have October, November, and December of 2016! So let’s do it! I’ll pick up where I left off and maybe do some of my favorites that I’ve missed along the way.

New Season

Cheers to a new season! Cheers to new beginnings!

Goodbye 2015!

They say the way you spend your New Year’s day is the way the rest of your year will look like. Well I decided to set aside time today to work on my blog. This year will be about advancing my career. I want to re-launch my brand K. Sherri and begin to really brand myself as a designer. I want to work on all aspects of my career this year, from this blog to my next collection. I guess I better start now. But before I jump into my plans for 2016, I want to go over the highlights of 2015.

The first half of the year is a little blurry to me right now, probably because it was my senior year in college and I was working extremely hard. I didn’t get much sleep those months so that could be why it’s a little hazy. Side note: sorry for the bad photo quality in some of these photos. They were taken on my phone.

April

I cut my hair! For the first time in my life! I didn’t have time to twist it every night because I was working on senior project. SO I went to a salon and chopped it off. Problem solved!

May

I participated in a cosplay costume competition and won Best Original Idea for my Red Riding Hood Costume I made for class.

June

I graduated from Cal State LA with a BA in Fashion Design and Textiles. This is one of my proudest moments of achievement this past year. It wasn’t easy getting my degree but I’ve had a tremendous amount of support throughout my entire college career.screenshot_2015-07-24-20-54-13-1.png

July

This was when I began sewing evening dresses for people that were bought and worn on red carpet events in Los Angeles! How exciting!

August

I got to travel to Barbados for the second time in my life! I was 2 the first time I went to Barbados. It was amazing! I wrote a few blog posts about my experiences in August.

September

I got my first job in the industry and first job out of college working as a stylist at Hautelook photo studio in Culver City.

October

I was the finale of a fashion show at Cal State Long Beach that promoted eco-friendly ways of producing and manufacturing clothing. That was another proud moment for my brand. Go check out my Fall 2015 line on my website, www.ksherri.com

November

I had the privilege of having my first pop-up shop at the Barbados Independence dance and award ceremony held in Alhambra, CA. I had scarves and bags that I made and was able to sell that night. I met a lot of people and I’m so thankful for that opportunity!

December

This month was filled with joys of the holidays! I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few things that’s happened this year but I think I got the jist of it.

I’ve accomplished so much this year and grew as a person. It’s been a great year but I’m excited to see what 2016 has in store for me!
