On Monday night at Nashville Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to site behind NIGEL BARKER, ANTM anyone?
LARZ: ” What’s the best advice you could give someone, like myself, pursuing a creative career?”
NIGEL: ” What do you like? What do you not like?”
LARZ: ” I love fashion and creative direction. Mmm…. I don’t like… mmmm the tiny details of planning?”
NIGEL: “My advice is to make a list. FIND WHAT YOU LIKE. FIND OUT WHAT YOU DONT LIKE, and learn how to say it eloquently.”
THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE MOST UNIQUE ADVICE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED. Sometimes its hard , when you’re a young and hungry creative, to be honest about what you DO NOT LIKE. This honesty, however, is how you find your focus… Focus... I tell you, is what makes the world of fashion take you seriously.
My outfit for the first night of NFW was a reflection of my “fashion focus.” The white Synderla Story romper, was sponsored by Synderela NYC, a company I connected with through my new friend Lauren Rae Levy- aka fashion rockstar and founder of LRL group. I met Lauren at Paris fashion week, and she has been my angel ever since. My fashion story truly is a SYNDERLA story,and I am thankful to connect my world through style. There’s a reason the brand is called ” SYNDERELA STORY.” It’s not about dreaming.
