Rowes Fashion started in Ottawa ON, known as the eighth worst dressed city, in the world. I’m not kidding, there was an article about it. Thank God I somehow got some fashion sense in me, life in the government was never going to happen, I mean grey suits and staring at a computer all day? NOPE. Mind you I do spend quite a lot of time on my computer right now…. and I wear a lot of grey. We’re not going to talk about that. Ottawa not having a booming fashion industry though was what pushed me into starting my own company, so I can’t complain that much. I mean, I can…I just wont. My first show I made all of the clothes within two months and had virtually no idea what I was doing when it came to anything besides making clothes. A very interesting experience I would say. I have since learned that models can be unreliable or the best people in the world. That my mind will change fourteen hundred times from the time that I decide something to the time it actually comes to realization. That photoshoots are basically every second weekend and that I do not like the song “Work”. Sorry Rihanna.
It has been a blur of ups and downs since starting my own business. Crying, not sleeping *cough, REDBULL ENDORSEMENT cough* doing everything I can get my hands on to get my name out there. There have been days where I wanted to throw in the towel and ditch to Thailand. That I absolutely WON’T do….*wink wink. There’s also been fantastic highs. I may have danced around like a moron in the middle of a public street on a weekend. That’s ok. That day was a good day.
I’m very excited to see what happens next in this crazy life that we live, well, that we’ve made. I’m inviting you to watch the ride and I promise not to leave anything out! For now, check out some of our first photoshoot of the Spring/Summer 2016 line…which will be reshot. I mentioned theres a photoshoot every second week right?
