“Before dabbling into fashion blogging, I was a fashion designer first. I started pretty young–fresh out of college. I had no connections in the industry so I really started from scratch; learning the ropes by trial and error. I didn’t have my own team / staff then yet so it was quite a challenge going to and from seamstresses that I outsourced.
It was hard to control quality and to get my ideas across–add to that the naïveté that came with my lack of experience.
Long story short, I failed to meet one of my very first client’s expectation. Although the ideas were there, execution wasn’t as good.
I apologized profusely and even returned the money she paid. It was the least I could do.
