Something I've always loved about working in fashion is the fact that it's always changing. But as much as our business is about looking forward, it can't get away from looking back. I think that's one of the keys to surfing through life's myriad of changes. Stay focused on what's next, but keep glancing back toward the past, carrying a little circle of beauty forward into the newest biggest thing. Follow the dots into the future, but have one foot firmly planted in the past that has gotten you to where you are standing today....
What do you think? Do you embrace change or long for the "good old days"? How do you keep your feet on the ground during periods of change?
