Welcome to Kaviar Kicks,
It has been an eventful year to say the least. After working these past four years as a Trademark Paralegal at Virgin Enterprises in Geneva, Switzerland, I've finally decided to work towards something that I've been passionate for since I can remember. And that's sort of how this all started...
When I received the news back in June that our office was closing down and I was going to be made redundant, I thought to myself, what the hell am I going to do now!? I spent long nights thinking, and finally one night, something hit me, and it hit me pretty hard - I've been working for one of the most famed entrepreneurs on the planet...furthermore, why am I not giving myself the opportunity to be one? I'm sure by now, you already know who I'm talking about, but in the event you don't, I'm referring to is Richard Branson.
"Do what you love, and the money will follow" - Richard Branson
What a great phrase right? This is a rule I will certainly apply.
Here's a (very blurry) photo of myself and Richard Branson. I was shaking of nervousness at the time so don't make fun!
I have learned that you can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance at doing something you love...And I am.
Since June, I've been jotting all kinds of ideas down in my smartphone - the stuff I would write would go anywhere from concepts, to names, to types of products, to style, design, color schemes, EVERYTHING went in there. I found it to be a very satisfying and exciting process, mainly because it was a project that I personally chose to do. But also because the project is not made to impress anyone, or get good grades, its sole purpose is to satisfy my urge of wanting to own something that bore my identity in a more contemporary fashion and share it with the world.
I'm getting there...
With my modest range of products and select sizes I am now attempting.
