By nature, the fashion industry is competitive, but so are those who are trying to break into the fashion industry. During New York Fashion Week, it's all about who has the best seats at shows, who spots which celebrities, who gets the best pictures, etc. On Twitter as well as in the blogosphere, I am noticing that people are getting more competitive and less supportive.
It is no secret that I am heavily involved with sports. I live for football (go Bears!) and hockey (stupid lockout), in particular. March Madness owns my world for three weeks. ESPN rules our television. I have more jerseys than blazers in my closet. I also follow many, many, many sports journalists on Twitter. What I have noticed is that the sports industry is infinitely more supportive and less competitive than the fashion industry. They will challenge your opinions, but they will never tell you that you are fat or ugly or that you dress poorly. They don't care about your physical appearance; they care about your opinions and thoughts.
Glam Kitten's Litter Box will be going through a transitional phase over the next few weeks. I am not sure which direction it will take, but I will keep you informed.
We need more positivity in our lives. My love for fashion will never end.
