My first ever post and more importantly, my first ever blog! 🙂

So, I guess introductions first? My name is Alexandra Pierson. I live in Manila where I am currently a DJ (the club kind, not the radio kind), clothing and accessory designer, style addict and a really big dreamer. I’ve always wanted to start a blog but never really pushed myself to do so. And another big factor for my blog creation delay is because I wasn’t able to replace my stolen Mac book. Not until last week! Yes!! I got a new laptop. Yay! 🙂 So, what else? Well, I have a very eclectic style. I don’t only stick to one. My style depends on my mood. Sometimes I feel bad ass and want to go with graphic tees, acid washed jeans and a leather (faux, mind you) jacket. On other days I feel all girly and I take the summer dress and ballet flats road. So you won’t expect to see me with one style only. I used to design jewelry five years ago and actually consigned it with a big company (cannot say which one) but then I got burnt out and kind of took a break from that. However, I’m missing the whole jewelry design process and I’m getting back in to it. I bought new materials and I’m gonna start next week!! 🙂

Today was the day I’ve been looking forward to for about two weeks already. The first day for my Design and Constructing Clothes class. And it was awesome!! 🙂 Our teacher, Aan Pineda is sooo amazing. I couldn’t believe how detailed and fast his lessons were. I mean we tackled a lot of topics in just four hours! But I must admit towards the last thirty minutes of class I was kind of zoning out. Was still so tired from my gig the night before. I’m so psyched with our class project. We each have to design and construct a shift dress! I cannot tell you enough how excited I am. We started on our mood boards (will post a picture probably tomorrow!) and I went for a  gold and copper and maroon and burgundy color scheme. I’m really thinking I’ll stick to this color scheme cause it seems so regal and classy.

    great you’re taking classes i envy you 😀

    id like to ask something though, do you think it’s okay for someone to free lance design accessories for a brand and only get 5% of the total profit per design?

    • Of course not. I don’t think it’s alright. You are the one who will come up with this awesome design, you should at least get compensated for it, if not acknowledged. I think at the least you should get 60% and the the brand gets 40% or a 50/50 deal. 🙂
