My friends, I hope your 2019 will be an amazing year of positive transformation!
As you know, we start already with tight and crazy calendars in the fashion industry, as January is already a month full of fashion weeks, trade shows and events.
Same as many of us, I use the Christmas holidays to rest, take care of myself and my loved ones and recharge my energy.
I’ve been reading, journaling and meditating, doing all my spiritual practice support to make sure I start the year and the new fashion calendar cycle with the levels of energy required.
While I was doing all this work, a question strongly resonated inside me: are we ready for the changes society is currently and strongly requesting in the fashion industry?
As I suppose many of you have read, 2018 was a year full of awakening, news and transparency, lots of unhealthy behaviours that were hiding during decades came into light, and the reason of this is that we live in a world where we have more and more access to information, so transparency is mandatory! And so the fashion industry starts to realize this and to learn it in a tough way in 2018.
But is the industry really ready to accept transparency, ethics and sustainability? And I am not talking just from the product point of view.
My personal answer to this is: it depends, are you really ready for it?
Because that is the real question…
If you are reading this post, most probably you work in the fashion industry.
So I invite you to reflect for a second and ask yourself this question, are you ready to step out and embrace and implement positive changes? Because it all starts first with US and our personal choices in this industry.
As professionals, consumers or simply lovers of this industry, our choices have a huge impact.
The problem is that we often think we don’t. And we excuse ourselves hiding behind a group or the abstract concept of “THE INDUSTRY” pretending we are not part of it, and so part of the problem and the solution as well.
You know I am a big fan of personal empowerment and free will, I am a true believer that it all starts from us, from within, and that one simple unique and small positive action may become a huge impact in the world.
So let’s make it, let’s commit that our action will lead to a positive change in the fashion industry in this expansive and abundant 2019.
