For a long time, I never cared or thought much about what I wear. This is quite normal in the culture of fashion designers. Very unlike the culture of fashion media and journalism, where style expectations are impossibly high for those that work in this field.
I've seen face after face light up with surprise and interest when I say that I'm a fashion designer. I have a good sense of what my new friend thinks I do, what I actually do, and the massive divide between those two points.
