Think Like a Fashion Designer:

  • Use your imagination – it is free thinking and unlimited, be creative every day.
  • Be insane curious, that will help you to be inspired and to think out of the box and seek new ideas
  • Be observant. Looking for a pattern and trends.
  • Don’t overlook simple familiar things. If you can use simple things well you can create endlessly. Designers go back to simple things like a t-shirt and use it again.

What About Us – Pieter Lategan

Late night, feeling cold with a ice block next to me
Blankets can change to heat.
So much happens in the mind, my mind.
It can be imagination or something real which I can’t see.

There is nothing worse than unhappiness.
With no joy inside my flesch

It is All About Us – Men’s Wear

What I define as fast fashion is it’s cheap, sells fast, and is more classified as streetwear. The question which I ask myself tonight is will streetwear work if you sell it for more than the fast fashion prices.

Varsity Sing: Toe vind ek jou ( Varsity Sings; I find you.)

Toe Vind Ek Jou

Ik legde mijn wapens neer
Vanavond voor het eerst
Ik zie mezelf in je ogen
Ik heb deze oorlog verloren
Ik staar naar het bloed op mijn handen
Ik weet dat ik veranderd ben
Je denkt dat ik weer aan het praten ben
ik hou van jou
ik zweer het
Geen schijn
Geen controle
Buiten de stemmen die lachen
Vrienden die begroeten
Tot ziens
Iedereen vindt zijn weg
Ik weet dat ik mezelf ook moet koesteren
HĂ©, mijn zweet
Hey, mijn baby
Jij bent mijn toevlucht
Ik wil je nooit aan het huilen maken
Jij bent mijn lied
Jij bent mijn deuntje
Wij hebben een hond
We hebben een huis
Ik heb genoeg gegeven
Ik schreeuwde genoeg
Ik heb lang geleden geleerd
Maar toch probeerde ik het
Vlucht als een verrader
Van wat mij vasthoudt
Er waren monsters in het donker
Toen heb ik je gevonden
ik zweer het

Geen schijn Geen controle

The Puppets at the Children’s Ministry

I had yesterday an opportunity to go and sell my teepee tents at the church. I had a wonderful day. I learned a lot of the ministry and specific the Childers’s ministry. They bring the word of God through puppets to the children.

There is a lady who are making the puppets for free for the church. That is what she gives for the church. I spoke to her and she said that it takes her a day to make the puppets.

What I love is the way she decorate the puppets, i makes it very interesting. The detail. She said to me it took her years to get the pattern so she did not give the pattern for me, which I understand, nor she does not give me classes she said she is too busy.

Here are my teepee tents which I went and sell at the church.
