Inspiration- Week 6

My insipiration are my two cousins from my mothers family. They live in Trinidad. The one on the top left, he is a current medical student. He is studying to become a surgeon. I’m really proud of him because he worked really hard to persue his dream career of becoming a doctor. The one on the bottom left is up- coming soca artist. He is working really hard on his music. Also he is extremely humble so I know he’ll make it far in the soca music industry.  The one on the right always insipires me to live a healthy life style and be postive. She always has postive attitude and lives very ital.

Inspiration- Week 5

My inspiration is Jacob Latimore. For a teenager/young adult who is not that much older than me to be very successful is very inspiring. Jacob does a lot. He’s a actor and celebrity artist.  He stared in movies such as runner maze, survivor’s remorse, and black nativity. It is my dream to meet Jacob Latimore. He’s someone I would like have a full blown conversation about anything. I love him to bits and pieces.  As a fan I wish him many years of good luck and fortune on his career.

Article Review

The article was about Norbert Gruger and his opinion on window displays. I disagree with him because I feel that he was too biased about how windows are supposed to be created. According to the article it states ” You need a network of decorator companies, who are flexible and able to meet these requirements.” I agree with this statement because in order to have a successful window display you need a team of designers who can help you pursue it. On the other hand I feel that Norbert needs to understand that not every retailer weather they are small or big will know that. Also he should make note that not everyone in the “fashion world” is networkable. Some people do not even know how to network effectively. Another thing that Norbert should realize that some retailers may be new to this industry and lack the basics of how to start of successfully in their retail business. For example; local neighborhood retailers.

For example; local neighborhood retailers. Some of these retailer’s window displays scream HELP big time! I feel that if you are a window display artist you should go out and rescue them. All in all , I can say I agree with Norbert because he points out a lot of facts about retailers and their displays.
