Inspiration: Laquan Smith 




Flipping through the November issue of vogue i stumbled across 21yrs Fashion designer  laquan smith from queens. (My home) I don't know laquan personally but i have heard and seen his fabulous pieces. In fact one of his pieces was featured in Rhianna's rude boy video. The infamous gold holy suit. Yes those. I was so happy that i seen him in vogue and inspired as well. After graduating high school laquan applied to FIT and got rejected twice. He then begin to hold off on college and pursue his dream of designing







 Laquan's dedication and hard work and will to not give up inspires me. He didn't let the rejection of FIT hold him back from what he was born to do. Everyone from Rhianna to Cassie and even tyra banks has worn his pieces. Laquan smith inspires me to keep on pushing even when doors get closed in your face.  FIT was not the door for him to go through. Laquan pushed and found his way and i admire him for that.
