A 2017 on revision + a 2018 in project
Like (I guess) it’s the case for everyone, these days are a good time to look back and check what I’ve done with this last year life has gift me.
I don’t know if it happens to you too, but each December 31st I’m amazed at how a FULL year with all of its days has passed. How it’s been so fast? And where have all those days gone, whithout me noticing it?
I panic for a few moments, like ‘life is escaping through my fingers and I didn’t notice’. But then I start remembering all the moments I’ve lived and the things I’ve done, where I was back then and where I am (and who I am) now and I calm down. Luckily. 😀
Like all big and important projects in life, a company cannot be built in two days. But it is something you build everyday and the good thing about that is, when you turn and look back, you see all the way you have walked through.
This 2017 we have done fantastic things at the studio: we have kept releasing great new designs, I have improved (a lot) the computer work (that one you don’t see but you notice) and improved the administration, production and customer service processes. And most of all, the key project this year has been rebranding from Maria Guyé to Maria Aguyé, a much wider project which not only fits the 50s reproductions, but also the wedding and night gowns and the face-to-face orders. So it offers a more personalized approach, looking to work with the person and for the person.
Of course, on 2017 we have (and I have) also made mistakes. I’m not perfect, no one is. And that’s ok. Learning is not always easy, but it always brings growth.
To sum it up, this year’s balance is fantastic and I am SO grateful for everything life has brought to me professionally and personally.
So what’s in 2018 for you?
Let’s get down to it! This is the interesting part: what are we oing to do with this 12 months 2018 is bringing? These are my plans for Maria Aguyé – and for you, of course – :
– Next year we are going to start releasing a new collection every season.
– We will keep boosting the bridal and night sections and the face-to-face orders. Garments that speak about the person and created for her.
– I will write on the blog more regularly
– and I’d like to talk more on it about mindset subjects: how we dress and why. It is time to make peace with our closet and to bring out the best in us through our clothes.
But most of all, now the new year starts it is a wonderful time to set my feet on the ground nad to get compass and fuel by remembering the values that brought me to start with Maria Aguyé: why I’m doing all this?
Because I want to create a fashion that fits better with each person, that helps you feel better and more in tune with yourself, that helps you be the person you want to be. And I want to do it from a “femenine” approach: with more love and care, wearing garments that work with oyu and not against you, listening what you have inside, bringing out the best of both your body and your personality to generate a boosting effect on your life.
Let’s go for it. Do you want to come with me?
