Laura Galic Avant-Garde Fashion Design
I am Romanian, born and raised in a town named Iasi. My grandfather from my mother's side was a deluxe tailor and my grandmother from my father's side was self thought in tailoring. I did not study fashion design despite the fact that at a very early age i was sewing almost anything. I decided that i was not going to pursue such a difficult and unsure career. My family had a very difficult financial status and i knew that supporting me in such an education would only burden them even harder. i pursued a math and IT high school followed by an interior/industrial design college degree. While in my first year of masters in industrial design I decided to earn some extra money with an online site which featured a few of the things I made. Things picked up really fast and after about a year since I launched the site I had a waiting list of customers of over 6 months. I decided then to quit the masters, by then I had decided that I did not really enjoy interior design as I had hoped. Since then I dedicated myself fully to my brand. This was about 4 and a half years ago.
The best advice I have to give is to have the courage to get things started. After that everything else falls into place, if it's meant to be. The thing that molds a fashion brand is honesty. If you as a designer are honest with yourself and your creations and never fall victim to copying. One must never compromise by saying 'I will make this because this will definitely sell'. This is the difference between a fashion brand and any local tailoring workshop. Many times the more unique the things are the more they will sell.
