Confidence, summed up in one nifty hashtag.
Over the past week I have met and come to learn more about three creative individuals, each enthusiastic and passionate about their work, each with a vision - be it to provide the ultimate new & cool casual dining experience, to create images that gives justice to the saying 'a picture speaks a thousand words', or to explore the endless possibilities of interactive design in within our modern landscape. What inspires me and motivates me most is their curiosity and initiative to create something new, something different.
I have also come to the realisation that despite being in a relative progressive cultural environment such as Melbourne where artistic collaborations abound and one-off cultural events are a seemingly weekly occurrence, that there are always two sides to a story. Two sides to every brilliantly conceived and executed idea. And really, you cannot afford to try to please everyone involved.
In a similar fashion (pun clearly intended), not everyone is going to agree with exaggerated pointy-toed patents (my dear sister said they looked like chilli), transparent clutches, houndstooth prints, or ridiculously round and reflective sunnies that came only with half a frame.
But they worked well for me so, backed up by Boohoo's latest campaign, I say, #OWNIT.
