When a fashion business is not a business, you’re not going to be able to make money off it. It’s something you have to earn. When you decide you’re going to be a designer in the fashion business, you have to be willing to do the work and work fast. You have to be a hustler.
I love this quote “The world’s greatest designers are never in business, they’re in the fashion business.” This is a great quote because, because the fashion business isn’t a business, its not about hard work. You have to be willing to make a lot of money to succeed in the fashion field. It is, however, about having to work so hard to be a great designer that the people who work for you don’t realize it and it makes you a little crazy.
I love this quote because it is true. Fashion designers are hustlers. And you have to be willing to work hard for that. It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do, what I was good at, and what I wanted to be good at.
In other words, all successful fashion designers are hustlers. It’s a business, not a job, and if you like it, you’re going to do it. But there are some things that the hustler has to be willing to do or else they’ll never survive. One of these is to be a designer.
I never thought of the hustle as a job, but its a type of job because a lot of designers are in the art field. The art field is a business where the product is the same as the art. But you have to be able to sell the product. So that means you have to be a hustler. And I am one. I make hats. I make headbands. I make belts. I make wallets. I make shirts. I make books. I make clothes.
I’m a hustler. I make hats. I make headbands.
It’s easy to think of designers as a type of artist, but the problem is the whole idea of art is to be a craft. So when you have a business, you make a product that is useful to the user. You take a commodity that can be made anywhere, and you make it so that it can be worn anywhere. But if you sell a product that can only be worn by someone who can afford a thousand dollars of it, then you have two things in common.
The biggest difference between a designer and an artist is that the latter has to be a marketer. That means they have to sell to a person who has money and is willing to spend it. So the difference between a designer and a hustler is that the designer is a marketer. They make things and sell them, while a hustler makes things and then sells them.
So if you’re a designer, the business you are in is a marketing business. While artists can still create art without having to sell anything, the difference is that artists have to sell it. A hustler, by contrast, can create for herself. To make her self-created art, she has to put her work out there. If she doesn’t have the resources to make it herself, she can hire someone to do it.
The difference between a hustler and a designer is that a designer is always making things. They have a set budget and they have to sell what they make. Hustlers are always making things and selling them. They have a set budget and they can decide to make a million dollars instead of a single one. The difference between a hustler and a designer is that a designer can choose to make things that sell but they have to sell it.
