“You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star” (Friedrich Nietzsche)
Blog del direttore
Honestly I don’t see many changes or new initiatives designed for the young happening. Lots of promises are made, there’s plenty of talking here and there.
You are watching: You need chaos in your soul
Followed by total silence. Small and medium enterprises are shutting down and potential job opportunities for the young are thus diminishing. This generation, your generation, the one I am addressing, is everything but choosy. I was truly impressed by some of your queries, by your ability to express concepts with sensitiveness and especially competence. I adored reading your questions one by one and then answering them. In some cases I would have liked to write more but it was already an extensive work as it was.
I think you are talented and enthusiastic people, but since nobody is helping you I wanted to give you some advice. Reinventing oneself perhaps is the right term. You cannot expect a miracle to happen, although sometimes it does, and become yourselves the advocates of your own talent. How? Creating new occupation formulas.
Nobody is giving you a job because costs are too high for the industry? The solution? Services to companies will become increasingly important. Set up a group of people with different skills: a photographer, a journalist (not necessarily a professional), a video maker, a stylist, and create “package” videos and editorials you can propose to magazines, TV channels, web-TVs. They may revolve around various themes like fashion but also culture, themed tourism, politics, inquiries, personalities, current events. Instead of just waiting, start working and if the big chance, the one you were waiting for, comes your way you will be still on time to change direction. This kind of services will become more and more in demand and you could find an occupation, earn money and not lose heart. This is also true for aspiring fashion designers. Résumés today are not taken so much into consideration, since companies receive a great deal of them every day. Suggest new ideas regarding the style of the designer you are submitting your résumé to. Everybody needs fresh creativity. And also, being enterprising, if you don’t sound self-important, can be very helpful. Your approach is also very important. You should not be aggressive, but making individual and original presentations also helps. This is how I chose Tim Walker, for the way he presented his work with a portfolio that featured dream-like pictures that had nothing to do with fashion. Be determined and humble, but not fearful and hesitant. I loathe self-important people, but also being too modest is not inspiring. With so many blogs around I wonder why nobody has started one on which anyone who has a good proposal can post their ideas, so that the site may become almost a sort of reference point for new talents. Facebook was started to name the best-looking girl at University … Be creative and enterprising. Don’t give up. We can help you out showcasing your ideas on the site, but you have to reinvent yourselves or, in any case, find new and unbeaten tracks. There’s always something new you can create!
