-In extension of my post of the 22/9, you often hear the expression that, time is money.
Of course, it depends on what the customer imagines, what kind of dress, the cut, the details and what fabric they want. Least but not last, how much they are willing to spend.
On the official website of the Tailor's Guild you can get an indicate of an hourly salery in their agreement here.
Like I have described in previous post, it takes quite some time to create a unique dress made by measure. By experience I've learned to give an estimate, when the clients ask for the price.
The customer then knows what they have to adhere to and what they can expect. -And I know what I am dealing with and can better organize the work within this framework.
But of course, if money is no object, I really can take care and use all the time needed.
On the other side, one does not always have to make every penny count. When I spend time on customers, I see it more like an investment in the long term, which hopefully comes back again somehow.
Sometimes it even comes back from a completely unexpected side. Maybe that is what you call Karma.

If you are curious to know how Vogue really works, I would recommend you to open up for DR2 on tuesday the 28/10, 20.50 O'clock. They are showing the film, The September Issue.
The film is at the same time a portrait of Anna Wintour, one of fashion's most influential women. I have mentioned the film earlier in this post from 16/11- 2009.
Pictures found on Google. If any objection, please read my Disclaimer.

Does time play a role? Yes! - of course it does, because life is short! Therefore, it is about taking advantage of the best time allocated.
The next question that turns up is, do we always use the time appropriately? Yes, I wish it was so.
Of course, it depends on what you want and what you rally spend your time on. Does it make sense?
No, not always. But the reason for this is probably that we never took the time to think about, what it really is we want, what we dream about. What makes sense? Hvad is important for you?
Of course, it's about prioritizing time and setting goals. I think you're doing yourself a great service by asking yourself these questions and putting them on paper.
There are a number of distractions, excuses and procrastination acts, that prevents you from using your full potential and do what you dream about. Television, computer, social media are some of the greatest time-robbers at all, just to mention a few.
Then, of course, it is time to take time, hold on, prioritize and focus on what has been found. Life is what you make of it.

Since my last post, I have thought about what it takes to get some feedback and motivate people to contribute with their opinions and ideas.
The reason is simply that I and a good friend have spoken a lot about the idea of starting a new clothing brand.
In this regard, I would like to do a bit of research, to hear if there is any interest and need for more new clothes. But maybe people are happy with the selection already available today?!

What do you think is missing on the Danish fashion scene? Is the range of clothes available on the market today big enough?
Do you sometimes find it difficult to find any clothes that you like or that fits properly? And when you finally find something, it's not the right size, not the color you like or the fit is all wrong. It might be just over the top priced and the quality could be better too.
I would like to do something about that, but I need some feedback from you readers. Give me some ideas and put your fingerprints on the future of fashion.
What would you like, if it existed? How much are you willing to spend for good quality? How old are you and how would you describe yourself?
All comment or emails are more than welcome. Thank you!
