More Thoughts

Sometimes having to satisfy a customer greatly discourages me, because I can not embody my concepts, ideas, designs in a manner I would like. I suppose it stems designers' creativity flight. My personal conclusion: the more sophisticated fashion-related technologies are employed, the more valuable is the manual work.
