I visited the Musée Yves Saint Laurent on Sunday and was re-energised by what I saw.
For the designer, it was more than just clothes that looked good, it was art, curated by passion, breaking moulds and forging new ways to be seen and felt.
As I perused his wears, studied the fabrics, observed the silhouettes, it was clear that immense thought and intention went into his work. He took his time.
Society will tell you you’re not moving fast enough, and that you need to constantly churn out great results all the time, but what effect does that have on the quality of what you’re doing and more importantly, you?
The focus these days is on how quickly you can produce anything and make money, money, money! Outrage and shock is the new currency and we are all suffering because of this untameable beast, but I digress.
What I’d like to stress instead, is to move at your own pace, whichever speed that may be. Choose quality over quantity and allow room for things to breathe and naturally evolve.
It is perfectly okay to take your time and finish well.
