What is the best thing I like about my job?
The best thing I like about my job is creativity and management
I like to diversify on different artistic projects, I work on my project of collecting clothing creations which is almost finished, from the development of a parade afterwards if all goes well.
Then on two feature film projects that were submitted to me that I put on hold for lack of funding and especially time.
The casting director who wants to start as a director who submitted this project to me told me to work on the script that he will sign me when he has no imperatives.
I love what I do I work on my clothing collections as a fashion designer, putting my clothing creations on my online store. In Paris I posed a lot as a model and now I pose occasionally at the moment simply because brands ask me to collaborate with them, besides I posed for some.
I have a lot of projects that I have put on hold like a feature film project that I have paused for the moment simply because some artists with whom I have to collaborate for this project have had imperatives, it allows me to move forward on my other projects on the side, fashion, comedy… At the level of direction and comedy, 2 serious projects, one with a casting director and actors, actresses of the Cours Florent, the other project with actors, actresses, scriptwriter …
For the moment it is on pause … in the meantime. It allows me to move forward on one of my projects, a feature film project that would be done in series mode on my side. I build my projects as I go while discussing and taking news of my collaborators, artist collaborators.
In parallel I pose in the animation of leisure that I also like to do.
Soon there may be a singing project because I was offered a duo collaboration, a collaboration following a singing challenge that I posted on my social networks. Apparently with some singing lessons I would be operational singing level from what I was told.
That’s why I’ve always been happy working for myself and freely.
I like to diversify into the artistic field because I have several projects that I would like to set up in my lifetime. My dream would be with the help of my brand and my fashion creations, a production, a financing company to launch myself in the field of artistic direction and fashion and why not create my own company with my own teams.
But I am a responsible and realistic person, I tell myself that I have to do it as I go. I love what I do, it’s a real pleasure for me.

One thing I hate the most in my work is when my collaborators do everything to convince me, sell me the dream and then when I finally decide to put myself fully into the project and then I am told that finally it will not lead further, lack of financial means ….

Then simply stop justifying myself.

This is the fundamental basis that a fashion designer must know to make research on new trends and determine a general theme to then be able to create these clothing creations.
