Making a name in an industry as competitive as fashion is tough, especially when you’re starting from scratch. I still remember when I started my clothing line Coexist. Back then, I was still doing it with my sister. We knew so little about the ins and outs of the industry. We didn’t know where or how to find good suppliers. We didn’t know who to contact to get our name out there. We were like lost little puppies. But slowly, with our hardwork and help from kind friends we met along the way, we found our yellow brick road. I always say, no man is an island. Behind every success is a helping hand. I’m always thankful to these people who supported Coexist and me. And if there’s ever any way I can repay them, I would.
Fast forward to one month ago, I got a message from one of these kind friends in the industry. Her name is Bianca Cordero. Bianca is a celebrity stylist who supported Coexist since our early days. And now, she has ventured into fashion designing as well. She messaged me to ask if could attend her event as one of her muses. Of course I said yes! I was more than happy to support her on her special night. I still remember when she first started styling. She was still so shy then but always so humble and grateful. She has definitely come a long way! Congratulations, Bianca!
