Lauren Mair: Interview

\\

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Sunset, Notepad, Wine

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

A work of art, in the making and under construction

Why do you do what you do?

The feeling i get when someone else is stoked on something i have created is magical, and so blissful.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I moved out west and was inspired by another artist that resourced her creativity into a way that would reach more clients and consumers. She was a visual artists and decided to get her work printed on scarves, and other wearables. I always knew i would do something in the creative field and be my own boss, but this opened my eyes to some different possibilities. Clothing is timeless, people will always strive for something different and unique.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Quitting my full time income.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Parents, have shown undivided support and attention. Constantly pushing me to be the best “Me” I can be. To not let my dreams be dreams, but yet a reality.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Trial and Error Baby! Its all about living and learning. Ive learned a lot about techniques being a seamstress. Where skill and creativity meet.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Currently hiring some help so I can pursue a new line. Goals are storefront, and fashion truck tour across Canada and USA.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Don’t compare yourself to others! There is always going to be someone lesser and greater than you and by comparing yourself you’ll only grow vain and/or bitter. Be confident and grateful for what you are and not what you want to be.

 

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Be in love with your life every second of it, love what you do, and do what you love, have infinite gratitude, be positive and encouraging. Be happy for people's successes and never jealous, be proud of your family and friends. Have a kind heart and give compliments when deserved. Don't suffer doing something you can't bare to get out of bed in the morning. If you're not excited to start your day you need to change something. If you're passionate enough about something, you will be good enough at it to make it a career. Go find something you're passionate about. Learn every single day about things that interest you, life is too precious and too short to not enjoy and indulge every single second of it.... Don't make dreams be dreams.... Go get your mountain
