j-na a haute couture designer

This designer has such a fiery passion for design that she has become a true Couture Junkie!! When you lose all track of space and time and can spend 16 straight hours in "the Zone" without feeling tired...this is quite a trip!

The adrenaline rush is like nothing else...the sheer excitement of original thought....the furious scribblings of new designs that just "POP" into my head, is just the best feeling!

I firmly believe that designing is like food, perhaps a little bit like chocolate....if you are not can evolve into a full-blown addiction and you will have to write your own "Confessions of a Couture Junkie" page! You can get "cravings" that just won't quit until you find your pad and pencil and release all the pent-up energy.

How do you know if you are a fashion designer junkie?

  1. Friends and relatives are concerned that you aren't sleeping. (They are correct.)
  2. You forget to eat for 12 hours.
  3. Your lips begin to chap from dehydration!
  4. Your cat keeps meowing for food, and getting mad at you for ignoring her, she keeps jumping into your lap to stop your mad project!
  5. Your significant other feels neglected.
  6. The kids use extreme measures to get attention.
  7. While you are cooking or cleaning, you keep looking for scraps of paper nearby.
  8. You forget your haircut appointment.
  9. You forget the dry cleaning.
  10. You always misplace the car keys....and the car.
  11. You invent a new design in the vegetable aisle..."I love the way the orange carrot contrasts with the eggplant purple!"
  12. You pretend you are listening to some people who like to talk, but secretly are envisioning what couture model and color scheme would work best with their personality, completion, and body shape.
  13. You get butterflies in your stomach and remain ecstatic for weeks before and after each runway show! "It feels like the first time..."These are my confessions of a couture junkie, and I do plead guilty to all of the above, however, the BEST of all and the the real icing on the cake for me is:
  14. I tingle all over with excitement and keep a twinkle in my eye seeing the reaction of my clients to their exclusive handmade original creations. The amazement and joy on THEIR faces is worth all the hard work! It is so gratifying to me that they can wear this couture design with pride and know that it was made for a lifetime of wear and joy. This is what fuels my passion, and yes, my ultimate addiction, being a true couture designer!

With Love and Passion,
