“A year from now you will wish you had started today.” -Karen Lamb
AWEAR started as a little creative drop of an idea just about 1 year ago. With a bit of nurturing through brainstorm sessions with friends and mentors, it has evolved into something bigger than me, and gradually taken on a personality of its own.
As the first year of the AWEAR journey is suddenly so much closer than I can believe, I want to connect with each and every one of you who have been part of this adventure :: whether it be through reading, participating, liking or sharing. Your involvement and engagement as a community have inspired me beyond words.
I cannot wait to continue to nurture this project's development. As of recently, I'm feeling almost overwhelmed by the waves of creativity that are crashing within me and amidst the inspiring network around me. With that in mind, the future of AWEAR is strongly intertwined with each of you :: our members of the AWEAR community.
Please feel free to reach out and share your ideas, feedback, thoughts, constructive criticism, future hopes and dreams for what AWEAR could be for you. This is what it's all about :: listening to our community and working together to build something true and meaningful.
Email me :: email@example.com :: and let's continue to redefine what the future of fashion means to us.
