I found a very cool page on the Internet called Fashiolista You can register there via Facebook. It is a site about clothes and fashion accesories, where you can follow other people styles and save and share items by yourself. You can also discover the fashionstores.

The contest "Moedepoo 2012" I won was the first fashion contest in my life. I think the preparation for contest took about 4 months. After work I spent much of my free time in the fabric store. At first I was depressed because I thought I would never find fabrics I need for my design. Estonian fabric stores are not really impressive and if there is something then it is very expensive. For my suprise I found most of my fabrics from the smaller cities than Tallinn (for example Paide Lipi-Lapi Äri and Rakvere).

The overall impression about Moedepoo 2012 organization was not good. The backstage was too far from the show place. We had to go from one house to another and it was raining outside. Lighting of the stage was poor so the photos were not so good. So I hope that next year the organizators will do it better.

I got to know at the last minute that I need model for every costume, but I had 8 costumes and 7 models. So I had to wear one costume myself and guess what it was ment to a smaller model but somehow I managed to wear it. And one of the models wore smaller dress also, so it did not give the effect I wanted. The dress was straining every where. In general I spent for this show over 1000 euros.

Hello world. I'm Egle. I think I can draw, but have never learned it (they say "art is to see the art in art). I guess I know something about fashion design, but I can sew as much as I learned in 12 years in school (and it is little). But still I won Moedepoo 2012 (in Estonia) on April 6 year 2012 in student category. I saw the advertisement in the newspaper and thought why not to try. I had nothing to lose, if only money, but it's better lose/spend money on your dreams.

I wanted to become fashion designer since I was little girl. But it took 25 years to get the courage to try designer profession not until year 2011 in December (the day I saw advertisement).

I had drawn many sketches earlier. Since I had no experience as a designer it was not easy. I did not know if I was doing right in choosing the models, sewer, fabric or costumes.

I have graduated the Public Service Academy (as administrative officer), so nobody expected from me to deal with fashion and the contest that I won. Personally I was not suprised because I believed in me. And I thought if I do not win then at least I tried and gave my best. Winning the contest gave me the statement that I am doing right thing and I should continue with it.

Right now I am at my comfort zone and working as a usual office rat. I am waiting for a push to start with my own business to offer people my creation. Perhaps the fear is stopping me. It is the fear of responsibility and inexperience.
