The ''Wall of Fame'' at the back of my bedroom door
For my very first post, I wanted to share with you my 'Wall of Fame' or otherwise the inspirational board that I made when I was approximately thirteen or fourteen years old. After all these years, it still stands stuck in it's position at the back of my bedroom door (wow... this tape was really strong!), and inspires me.
The story behind this is the following. I remember I was lying in my bed trying to answer the question ''What do you want to become when you grow up?'', a question that parents, aunties and the rest of la famiglia usually start asking us by the time we become five (like it is ever possible to know at this age what to do with ourselves!). Anyway....in order to come with a serious and well-thought answer, I was playing in my head with my likes and dislikes while fantacizing myself in the most ideal work space. So my likes contained words such as clothes, beauty, art, glamour, design, creativity and sparkle. And then, it was like the words came together and created the whole image of the puzzle. I was found in this image hidden under a table (where children usually hide), in a room like the backstage of a fashion show, observing beautiful girls (models) rumning around in fairytale gowns, beautiful hair and make up, posing here and there for the photographers whose camera flashes were lighting constantly the space, just minutes before the show. And that was it! I suddenly knew....Beyond a reasonable doubt, I was going to study FASHION so that I'd live in this world. So ever since, I started designing, making collages and collecting magazines (piles of them....). This is one of them.
