After a year and a half of creating mood boards, working on designs, taking courses at FIT, finishing film school, taking up odd jobs, internships, life's crazy ups and downs, etc., I am finally opening up my shop! I am so excited to share with you all my passion, style, interests, inspiration, hopes and dreams through The Peacock Spot. As a lover of the Dramatic Arts, Arts & Crafts, fashion and cosplay, TPS has been an amazing and cathartic journey for me. It allows me to step away from the pressures of the daily grind and actually spend time on what really brings me to life: Creativity.
I can't tell you all how many times I've been told: "You have way too much on your plate right now. You don't need to waste time on another potentially, fruitless endeavor." Nonetheless, I persevered. I'm a passionate person, folks. I can't help it (I'm a Scorpio)! What I've learned while on this journey is that rewards don’t solely come in monetary form (although, let's face it, I'd love them to). They come from following your instincts and trusting in yourself and your own uniqueness. With this store, I give you not only my appreciation for Hollywood Regency style, Chinese fashions and all things vintage, but my creative spirit that endures all forms of doubt and hardship. In the face of all obstacles, I spread my wings and say:
Yes, I know Peacocks can't fly. But they are confident, elegant, and never shy about strutting their stuff. If you ask me, that's something to strive for ;)
With that, I leave you with some inspirations I've collected over the past few years while creating my pieces.
Let's fly together!
