Anaiyah : Behind the Scenes : One on One Exclusive
Later on I continued to learn off my mother since well practically every female in my mother's family knew how to sew, design and illustrate fashions. I recall when I was eight years old I was watching the fashion netowrk channel at the time and I made a blue rayon dress with a long train for my doll and something remotely simular came up on the screen. My auntie Winsome was estatic and ran and told my mother I will grow up having a passion for fashion.
As I grew older around the age of 12 or thirteen I began doing local runway venues for small boutiques around the North Miami area. I was the town favorite. As time passed on I struggled my way through into becoming some what of a success story for my mother. She put me in alot of things. Dance , Music Appreciation, Chorus, and even Basketball. My mother made it an effort for me to grow up with so many outlets of opportunities. I am so thankful for her.
Around 16 or 17 I decided to make clothing for my best friend Darlene. Her mother couldn't afford school clothes so I would either make them from scratch or what most call today creatively style her clothing. I would resuchure her clothing, do her hair , nails and feet so she would look super original for class everyday.
On my senior year of high school I became a featured columnist for my high school newspaper as a fashion critic. Ironically enough , I am now a part owner to a online high fashion publication.
Later on in my early twenties I regained all my strength and became who I am today. A struggling artist who's motivation started from the age of seven.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blogs and learning more and more about me.
Toodles for Now,
