I started this entry last month and didn't get a chance to finish it until now. I feel everything is still valid though so I thought I would share it with you guys:)
I went shopping and made some notes about what is hot and retailing right now. I went to all the store levels. I always spend quite a long time in Holt Renfrew-my favourite stop. Every time I go in that store it reminds me about why I decided to design clothes- beautiful fabrics, perfect cuts, real passionate craftsmanship.
I took some photos(they gave me permission). I will attach them to this post:)
So here we go!Ready?! Weoooo! Please ignore my grammar haha it's all just in quick note form
