As someone who has struggled with severe anxiety for many years, nothing had brought me more comfort than knowing that ‘i wasn’t the only one.’ With being a fashion student my dream had always been to one day release my own brand but now i want it to be something more than just that.
Fashion is taking over the world nowadays, it’s become a new way for people to express themselves, to create. It’s a form of art. With that being said I wanted to use this medium to ‘ Speak Out through Fashion ’. The pieces i’ve designed and continue to design are a hope to normalise and spread the voice against looking at mental health and anxiety in particular as a negative thing.
Clothing Trends change constantly but accepting people for who they are no matter what ‘problems’ they may have should never change. Through this collection I hope to help others out in the world that feel the way i do: alone, helpless, worthless. So many emotions that one person should not be feeling or going through all on their own. By supporting this brand we would be able to help these people feel less alone, let them know the world understands just what theyr’e going through and maybe we don’t get the chance to personally address each person ourselves but showing that we support this shows them our understanding of the situations.
With the money raised we will be able to manufacture all these ideas and make them into a reality, using the top rated manufacturer in the UK to ensure the products are made properly and of the best quality. After ensuring these products are made to the top quality we will then go through with ordering them in bulk and adding them to a professionally designed and made online store. To promote the brand we will send out boxes of our products to influencers who often talk on the topic of mental health to introudce the brand and message we’re trying to convey to their followers.
I know first-hand how emotionally and physically exhausting it is having anxiety. Now that I'm slowly getting help through therapy but most importantly friends and family, theres nothing more i want to do than to be there to help others and make them feel wanted- let them know they don’t have to go through it alone.
Thank you so much
