My name is Beatrice Taylor, although my friends call me Bee.
It seems I kept the name Taylor despite having been adopted by family friends when I was only eight years old after I had sadly lost both my parents. The name was perhaps was fortuitous in the light of the fact that I went on to develop a real interest in clothes and in fashion as I drifted into my early teens.
It could be that this interest has its roots in a present I received when still a small child – a quaint little sewing kit which got me into a whole lot of trouble when I proceeded to make alterations to my school bag and uniform, much to the chagrin of the school authorities. I kind of missed the point about a uniform, which is that one person’s should always be the same as the next person’s – hence the name.
Nevertheless it didn’t deter me nor dampen my enthusiasm. Today I am a fashion student and my adoptive parents have been wonderfully supportive, often visiting me at my fashion shows. I know I am so wonderfully lucky, having struggled with ME just a few years ago, to now be well enough and able to pursue my dream
Clothes Make You What You Are
Fashions change, but our love for fashion never does. Whether you are a youngster who has to keep up with all the very latest fads, or a person of more mature years who just wants to remain fresh and relevant, what you wear and are seen wearing is so important. Clothes make you what you are, as somebody famous once said.
It is so vital, when making and designing clothes, to know what the latest fashion requires of us. It can be something blatant and ostentatious, like hot pants at the turn of the 1970s, or a thing as subtle as an extra button on a waistband or a style of belt. If the design misses the demands of the moment, the whole line of garments misses the proverbial boat. It really is as simple as that.
