How funny it is to feel as if you longer relate to the person you use to be? I say ‘funny’ but what I really mean is grown. As anyone in their late twenties can attest to, evolving is a sign of growth and growth; is a sign of success. Coming from a little island country known as Sri Lanka, located just four hours away from Dubai where I’ve grown up and call a ‘home-away-from-home’ its strange to see how my life has changed.
Coming from a middle class background and slowly but surely working on changing that( I still am) I’ve was lucky enough to be able to attend and graduate with honours from the fashion design university of my choice due to the support of my wonderful parents but that was back in 2010. Fast forward to now and not only am I working for a luxury Middle Eastern fashion publication but I’m trying to successfully launch my legacy; my brand, Avastave. For anyone whose known me that is one dream that I have always pursued and so I continue every day, to work towards it. As they say when its your passion, it never really feels like work. Though it is – a lot of work!
I wanted to have a great launch on this new platform but sometimes I thinks its best to keep things simple and play to your strengths and mine clearly isn’t website design, But my thoughts, much like the ones I’d post on my older blog http://www.luvdmi.blogspot.com are my greatest contribution to the online community. To be able to share your experiences and thoughts with others in order to encourage both emotional, spiritual, personal and professional growth is one of the keys to successful living. This blog will be a testament to two things; the power of fashion and our ability to inspire change. I hope you will all join me as I embark on this journey – Dmitri.
