"Put everything you have into your work and don't pay attention to any negativity there may be."
Model Citizen Media provides a platform to recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.
Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far. I was born in Germany and haven't always been a fashion designer. I have been working in the corporate world for most of my working career. I taught myself how to sew and up until about a couple years ago I decided I wanted to share my skills. I have been a part of multiple fashion weeks and plan to just keep showing what TRBrown has to offer. TRBrown is a women's ready to wear brand that offers statement pieces for any occasion What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field? My goals are to continue building TRBrown with plans to start manufacturing the end of 2017. I have already been a part of multiple fashion weeks in different states; I want to keep traveling in the United States so I can hit all different types of demographics and to spread the word on TRBrown. How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements? Creating clothes is all a process and if you aren't patient then that could get in the way of your creativity. I am always open when I have to handle clients and I am always willing to work with them on their visions as well. If you had to do it over again, what would you change? I would have gone to school for fashion instead of trying to pursue a career in law. I have realized that my talents/creativity far exceeds what I thought my ability was. Who is your hero, and how have they helped you get to where you are? My hero is my mom. She is one of the hardest working people that I know and has always sacrificed things to make sure my sister and I got whatever we needed. She is the definition of the women that I am today and has always taught me to reach for the stars. How important are creative education courses? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful? I have taken a couple courses over the last couple of years to just tighten up some techniques. I think continued education is always a good thing because new and better techniques present themselves when maybe you didn't know they could. Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry? Go hard! Put everything you have into your work and don't pay attention to any negativity there may be.
