Good morning everyone :-) I was a bit ill these past few days and spent some relaxing time with my mum in Berlin, but here's a new outfit post! Brand new, as we just shot it two days ago after visiting the 'war and wardrobes' exhibition - which I can totally recommend to all of you if you're interested in fashion, history and photography! Berlin is getting colder and colder and I can barely wear my 'fall uniform' anymore, which consists of a sweater, skirt, tights and boots. I stocked up and got myself a new pair of black overknees to keep my legs warm. But the most important thing in today's outfit is my red cape. If you follow me for a while, you all might have seen it more than once on LOC but this time is a little different. I have always dreamed of my very own coat collection, my very own label. I just wanted people to wear my creatons (and I still want that, oh my). So I decided to give it a try and give my creatons some space on the internet, as in, building up a website. I have been working on it for weeks now, and just wanted to share this with you, as I feel like it is interesting for you to see how I try to get this started, and not just show you the website when it's finished.
I never wanted to share my last name with you on the blog, probably because it's weird and uncommon. People pronounced it wrong, they made jokes about it and all these things, so I was kind of sick of telling others that my last name is Wolfschluckner. BUT, since I lived in Berlin, I met quite a few people who thought this was an amazing name and in fact, it stands for strength and creativity, and that is the reason I called my label-in-the-making WOLFSCHLUCKNER. Just like my last name. As simple as it is. With all the weird pronouncing and the not so funny jokes people make. I am currently working on coats and capes for the website which will hopefully go live sometime in January; I already have a model that I absolutely adore and I am about to meet my photographer for brainstorming! It's all super exciting, although I don't know if it will work out, but I love to work on this new project every single minute! I already set up a Facebookpage that I would be happy if you'd like and share, and an Instagram account.
It feels damn unreal to work on your own brand, label, whatsoever at the age of twentyone. I have always wanted to just show my creatons online and make people happy by wearing my coats and capes. It's not about fame or similar, but about my passion for creating outerwear and sewing in general. I am both happy and scared at the same time, as I could totally fail and ruin my dream of having an own label .. but it could also work out, so I just have to try and risk something. Honestly, I don't have anything to loose. There's this song called 'Suggestions' I discovered on PLL and listened to it over and over again, and it's got some pretty good lyrics saying "At the end of the day lifes a lesson" and this is what keeps me going. We all have to learn so much, and life's a whole process of learning, dealing with failure and success, and we will grow with all these lessons.
I will keep y'all updated, but please be gentle with me, as I am working really hard right now, and with uni and a part-time job, it is getting tough.
Wishing you all a great Tuesday! Lots of love, xx
