LOOKING BACK

LOOKING BACK

Looking back in the past has always been a way of learning for me. I've always believed you are your best source of inspiration and when you actually sit down and look back at the things you've done, your moments of achievements and failure, you can analyse what next steps should you be taking in life. 

When I left Italy, I moved to Chicago for a while. Both Milan, Italy & Chicago, USA have been the stepping stones of my life. I've learnt so much from these places & acquired so many skills merely through observation & by keeping an open mind. 

While I was in the USA, I also had the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week where I met the extremely talented designer couple, Sachin & Babi for their presentation show. I've always been a big fan of their designs since the time I bought my first skirt from their label. The feminine silhouettes with intricate design details are like a signature style of the duo's evening wear collection called Noir by Sachin & Babi. 

Meeting new people, going to new places, doing things alone for the first time & traveling makes you learn so much more than you'd think. Today, when I look back at all the things I did, all the people I met, I feel like I've taken so much from everyone & learnt so many things. There's so many things in life that you can be grateful about, so stop regretting & look at the same situation from a different point of view. If you really look to find beauty & happiness, you'll find it in the darkest & the most unexpected places. Have a wonderful week, you all!
