Ok, sure, we could go down the path that artists aren't paid what their worth, etc but that's not the point.
The point I learned was to be creative and move on. That a creative expression is always there but that a piece or collection flows and ebbs in cycles. If you just want to be creative, be that, own it, make your stuff and be regale in its process.
But with that vision, don't open the atelier and 'pretend' to sell your pieces like you actually want to have a biz. lol. You are just fooling yourself. Maybe its better in an atmosphere of a gallery or online space to simply share your talent. If it's a biz, make it a biz, not your baby. Woah...I think I needed to ear that lol.
Oh...and the designer is actually Chloe believe it or not. Karl Lagerfeld designed for the brand in the 80s and did other surrealism inspired pieces. This was a great time in fashion, hiring other designers to collaborate with the brand.
Generally, we designer creatives work alone with 2-3 colleagues. I think by working with a team of support, that's different. Forming a team of mentors, friends, a stylist or a curator to give feedback, gives a feeling that the brand is a biz, not just a project...that we are open to changes, available for another pricing structure and stopping where maybe its not 100% perfect ...where you are not your biz.
