About a week ago a very old friend tagged another highschool picture of me from before my plus size days... I could remember the very exact moment of when he took this picture!!! I was so excited to see this photo because it allowed me to see myself as I was... I was a size 7/8 ladies. Far from what is mostly accepted as plus size today. As I was observing my tiny wast and my lengthy arms I realized that I had been suffering from a nasty low self esteem disorder. I was 15 or 16 in this photo even then I can recall always baggering myself about my size... I had wanted to be the typical supermodel size 2 like all the other gorogeous girls in my athletics classes. At this time more then ten years ago worrying about a muffin top was the least to be concerned about!
Todays blog might come off as random rambling or mere slight judgement calls from an individual that has observed much detail and insight from her experiences in the San Antonio Fashion industry of Texas. Hmmm... Curious title I choose for this fashion Blog... curious indeed. Well lets start from the beginning- my first fashion show that I ever had anything to do with was the grand opening IADT spring Finale back in 2008! I was assigned a model provided by the school, her name was Victoria..... I dont remember her age but she was incredibly sweet in personality. The school of Iadt was my first mainstream event. It was very well organized, and well covered by local media. It was the most amazing opportunity in my life because it would be the first time ever that I would meet a genuine celebrity. Which at the time was Nick Varreros of Project Runway season 2... even though I only had one garment to show off it was still a genuine 15 seconds of fame. The designer students also were provided VIP seating for their family members which pretty much went out the window since some 500 guest showed!!! The turn out was successful.
