In fashion people take you on your own estimation of yourself – that’s just a given. You can walk into a room feeling pumped up and confident, and if you radiate that the industry will believe in what you project. If, on the other hand, you appear vulnerable you won’t be seen as a winner. I remember a long time ago, when I was on maternity leave, Vogue employed a new fashion editor. When I met with my editor after having had my baby, she told me about her. She said, ‘Oh Lucinda, I’ve employed someone and she looked fantastic. She was wearing a red velvet dress and a pair of Wellington boots to the interview.’ This was twenty years ago. She went on, ‘She’s never done a shoot before. But she’s absolutely beautiful and so confident. I just fell in love with the way she looked.’ And I went, ‘Ok, ok. Let’s give her a go.’ She was a terrible stylist. Just terrible. But in fashion you can go far if you look fantastic and confident – no one wants to be the one to say ‘… but they’re crap.’ Honestly Anja, you can go quite far just with that. Fashion is full of anxious people. No one wants to be the one missing out.
Stumbled on this interview titled Will I Get a Ticket? A Conversation About Life After Vogue With Lucinda Chambers. It struck me as who non challent and honest it felt. I'm not really into fashion trends and I'm pretty sure Vogue will not be my first choise from the pile of magazines in the doctor's waiting room (usually there is always one).
What raisonated with me the most is the paragraphe that I quoted above, This is not really tied to the fashing industry but this is generally how people behave in life. I meight need to look any scientific researchs about this, but there is this auro that radiate from confidant persons that helped people around into folowwing them in their endavors.
