One of the ways that we can build better relationships in any sphere Fashion Included is very simple, as simple as two words: "THANK YOU!"
Since I'm going to be ranting more often- I'd like to start with "The Man In The Mirror" and lead by example by engaging the two simple words that we all sometimes forget to say, not just at the point when someone does something, but afterwards to let the person know that we REMEMBER their efforts and what it meant to us.
So every other post I will be putting up post to highlight some great people (3)who have done things that I can appreciate both when they did it and now.
I'd really like to thank the following people:
Carl Blenman of Studio Studio- Carl has a way of making even the most nervous person feel comfortable about having their photograph taken and he does it so effortlessly it's amazing. When we started I'd send ALL our new faces to him because I knew that HE could calm the nerves and capture that image no matter what. He has always been a good listener and has gone beyond the call of duty to help. To Carl and the entire Studio Studio team thank you!
Catherine Rocheford- Catherine is known for her GREAT ideas, bubbly personality and sharp no-nonsense tongue. She was our very first Client running a tight ship at BMEX Fashion Show and bringing the Sherbourne Conference Centre- now Sir Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre to a halt with her staging of Manaquins Live! Still very much the "ideas lady" she is a good friend and source of strength the kind of person you want in your corner. To Catherine, thank you!
Katrina Brathwaite- I met this bubbly young lady when she was a student at the Barbados Comminity College in the Fashion Design Associate Degree programme. She was the organizer of a show to highlight young design students at the college called "METAMORPHOSIS". This was one of only two shows I have gone to that started on time! The quality was high and she did this all while she was in her TEENS- I was so impressed! Katrina has been a good friend, sharp designer and now on Team Gadal a good organizer thank God, to make up for my short comings! Smart articulate and well er sexy to boot Katrina is "all that"- To Katrina Thank you!
