Jag Saint Joi - I'm Happy!

Bundle up in a denim Jag Saint Joi bubble...coat that is - collar popped, hands in leather trimmed pockets *hey, I’m detailed, literally*, I walk the streets of New York with my samples. All of a sudden I felt something hit me. It wasn’t that something actually hit me, but an uncontrollable amount of passion surfaced that could only be described in three words...Jag Saint Joi! A smile covered my face in pure 'Joi'! How do I bottle this moment, these words, and this emotion? Liberated yet flabbergasted, I couldn’t grasp the basic principals of how to even formulate the letters of the alphabet to create a word.

I felt so good in my own skin that I was jealous of myself. Laughing at the fact that this collection is a lesson in fashion 1(0)1 is bananas. Why 1(0)1, because...

...Actually, let’s table that discussion for a more mature conversation. I want to make certain you’re ready. So let me prep you, but in the meantime, I am about to teach and transform the whole game believer by believer, don't worry, I have time. Trust me! I’m so in love with this fashion game and the participants, it’s inspirational and plus I'll be here for a while, a long while.

See, you can either conform or be formed, you pick your poison but Jag Saint Joi will form and re-create imagines through fabrics. It will be unfair if didn’t share this experience with you, but a word to the wise, if you’re going to do,"DO" fashion, be heard, bespoken!

Inspired Inspiration...

They never told me when I was growing up that inspiration is conceived through anything and transpired from everything. Maybe I didn’t pay attention in life 101? I guess I could never understand that I was part of the “any and everything” that inspiration came from. Never knew that I could challenge myself...convince myself to be so inspired by the “me” one told me ---- no one ever told me? Maybe it was meant for me to find out through the garments I create? Maybe that’s why each piece I design is a story in itself. Yea, you heard me right; each piece that I create is a story within itself. Jag Saint Joi is a story, an evolution and if you stick around, you will be able to evolve with the vision of a visionary and be inspired by your own inspiration.

This video is a quick video that was inspired by my own inspiration, I hope you enjoy, it’s a continuation of
I Get it now!

I get it now...

I wish I could document everything that is happening right now, because this is crazy and this needs to be captured! I want to go back and relive this very moment when I need motivation.
*Thinking to myself* Well document it! Write down everything, anything that comes to your mind, every image, every story and every’s only healthy! As I open my Mac, thoughts spew and the inspiration is now documented...
Where did I lose myself in this bliss? Have I gotten so far beyond myself that I forget to blog more? Say it ain’t so, nah, def not in my character to forget where the inspiration started?!?! So what is it? I don't know, but...

...Have you ever been so caught up in a moment that your thoughts lead you into arena where words could not conjugate an explanation to describe the feeling? A state where the most important things are neglected because the love for the "new" something becomes the most important thing? CRAZY!! So now you’re juggling a lot of important things. Ummm, yea, about that...I gotta do better!

I guess it’s time to reveal some things that I have been working on over the last few months, huh? I have been busy, lol. I know, I know...I say that at the beginning of every blog right? Lol, so’s the true, now what? *Tilts head and puts the mean grill on*. No really, no lie, I have been putting together this collection and it’s been very interesting. Things are coming along very well! I’ve tackled the hardest pieces (in my opinion) of this collection. Now I'm working on finishing up the rest, working on the logistics of it all. I got a plan and it needs to be executed in the healthiest way!

Spending almost every night in the city at the manufacturers, in fabric stores, trimming stores, going to different events, networking and staying up many nights sketching and thinking just to get the right design. I am excited to show what I have been working on. Let’s just say Jag Saint Joi’s vision is probably clearer than a blind man's imagination...(you might want to think about that, pretty deep, lol).
