I dunno, I'm just busting 'em a little bit...main thrust of the post is that you've got el mejor estilo.
I wouldn't underestimate your knowledge in comparison to people within the industry. Of course there are some supremely talented and knowledgeable people, but there are far more morons deciding what to offer the consumer at large. I'm baffled how some of these people attain certain positions (sucking dong is the most obvious, but probably not the most used method when climbing the fashion ladder), ego massage maybe?, there are a lot of insecure fashionista's, not so much in LA compared to NYC.
I myself can sometimes become so immersed in my own projects that many trends, brands and items do pass me by often, only to be discovered here and in magazines. I wouldn't say working in the industry elevates me beyond anyone here. Sure I know the protocol, the logistics of producing clothes from pattern to wash process; I like the equality here, anyone regardless of age or occupation brings something to the table.
