11 Dec a year in color
I cannot believe I’m less than a month away from my one year anniversary with my Wildflowers family! A year ago today I was back in Indiana with no idea what 2018 would have in store for me. On a whim, I moved to Austin in January for an amazing opportunity to work with Sam and the Wildflowers team. I knew that I would be learning to create over-the-top cuteness EVERY DAY, and honestly…that’s about all I knew.
I had no prior “professional” design experience, nor did I think myself capable of actually being able to create these darling clothes! But Sam believed in me. She watched me from afar, as a customer and friend, through my old job as the marketing manager of a local Fort Wayne boutique. She saw my potential, even when I couldn’t. And she still does. This year has been full of learning curves for me, but Sam lets me blossom along the way, with patience and grace, and I’m so lucky to be a part of the ever-growing team of Wildflowers! I still can’t believe I get to be a part of the process that puts a smile on so many little girls’ faces.
We started this year with our Spring 2018 collection, Best Day Ever. And it was just that – full of unicorns, rainbows, and bold beautiful colors! Seeing this collection Sam designed immediately made me fall in love with the brand even more. I knew I made the right choice when my first day at work began by building giant rainbows out of balloons and making huge donut walls for our Spring conference!
We finished out the year with our Fall 2018 collection, Pocketful of Wonder. I started designing with Sam during the third release of this season, so it instantly became near and dear to me. From scouting for photoshoots in the most magical of places, to seeing these little sketches we designed actually come to life, this collection was nothing short of extraordinary!
But of course, our photographer Kate captures each collection way better than my words ever could! Just watch that adorable year in review video to see all the magic we created in 2018!
Last but never least, I speak for everyone from the Wildflowers home office when I say we are so, so, so grateful for each and every one of our Consultants, hostesses, and customers. Thank you for accepting me into this beautiful world of girls boutique clothing! It’s been a wonderful ride so far and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us!
Cheers to the new year,
