french kiss: noun/verb. [frenzh.kuhzz.] definition: oh you know
When I say French Kiss, I bet you a number of things come to mind – the movie, Paris, a Frenchman, croissant (I don’t know how food got in there but somehow it just does), maybe even the Italian ‘Ultimo Baccio’ or the American version, The Last Kiss – and not the actual kiss, yes?
The lesson today my li’l darlings have something to do with what I get asked of a lot – what is the fashion industry really like? I am no Anna Wintour and this I say, in my humble opinion and of someone who does not have the same VIP pass like Bryan Boy, the industry as you have heard of it talked about it stereotype is exactly that – cut throat.
There are many who will go out of their way to bring you down, to try to ‘cramp your style’ as they say and at times, would be openly rude to you. There’s a certain sociological hierarchy that is unabashedly on display and it is unfortunate. That is not to say however, that there are no real sincere kindness and support as there are – fashion veterans who have seen them all and have managed rise because of talent and hard work. The fashion industry hosts this century’s greatest artists, genuine talents and true pioneers and innovators.
So, what’s a girl/boy got to do to survive?
I was told to develop a thick skin (my THANN skincare routine is not helping, it keeps my skin super moisturized).
