Can you think of an object which makes you shiver? Object (or maybe a pile of them) which brought you to the state where you are right now, which made you the person you are today? It is one of the tasks I found on the Internet and thought it was really interesting. I have to say it was quite a work to find one.
And only when I was in a pit, when I almost wanted to cancel doing this task my sight fell on a pile of magazines. It is very hard to call them this way because I call them Bibles, or very important books. They are not just magazines. They are vintage Vogues. Old Vogues from the times when my dad was a fan of fashion photography and bought many of those. We have a variety of years, countries (cause it is being published in many parts of the world). They are not exactly vintage, they’ll become those in probably 30-40 years time, now they are just old, but for me they are special.
I remember myself looking through them when I was little and picturing how I am in there, on those glossy pages with those beautiful models working for some cool label (or maybe my own))).
There is another reason why they are important to me. Because when I was choosing the path of my life (I told a little bit about that in my first post) I looked through the ‘books’ and knew exactly where to go. My life may lead me anywhere and I may be doing something completely different from what I picture in my head today, but at least now I know where to submit my ‘forces’.
I have attended design school recently and one of the tasks was to cut patterns from the magazines and draw some sort of clothes on the base of them. I bought new magazines not to ruin the Vogues! )) (not very funny tho, but still))
Thank you so much for reading)
What is your object of your love and trembling? What is it that makes you shiver???
