DREAMS: Episode 9
GUYS!!!!! THIS IS MY 100'th POST!!!!
Grace and I were standing at the airport in front of security. I was flying back to London already!
"Bye, Grace! I'll miss you so much!" I cried.
"Aw, Caroline, it's alright! I'll see you next, before the wedding! Safe travels sis."
"Thank you, Grace," I replied. "I can't wait; see you soon!" ;)
As soon as I got back, I had to head straight to Alnetta Jacobe's office to discuss the details of my new design company.
My flights were not delayed, and I got back to London real quick. Well, in like 15 hours! I was pretty jet lagged. I checked into my hotel, freshened up, and went over to Alnetta's office. I walked into the lobby and was blown away. It was so professional! Well, of course it was. This is Alnetta Jacobe!
I knocked quietly on her office door.
"Come in!" rang a cheerful voice.
"Good morning!" I said.
"Oh my dear, welcome! I trust you had a good flight back?"
"Yes! I'm a bit tired, but I slept on the plane most of the time."
"How splendid! Ok. Let us get down to business! I have acquired you an office space a block away from here. We are in the fashion district, as you may know, so there are designers all around us! I am good friends with a lot of big-time designers, like Sarah Burton and Jenney Packham."
"Oh my goodness, wow! Those are people I only dreamed about meeting! Thank you so much!"
"Oh yes dear, you will get to meet them! So, you have an office over there that I took the liberty of decorating myself! You can totally change it up if you don't like it! You also have a workroom to create all of your designs. In a few days, we will have another meeting to discuss your staff. You need people creating these things with or else you will never get anything done!"
"Wow. Thank you SO much! Miss Jacobe, why are you paying for all this? I have never had any experience! I have my degree, but that doesn't make me a legend."
"Haha oh my dear, you are one of the best young designers I have seen in a long time! You just need this little boost, and before you know it, you will be famous as me, well, if I must say so myself!"
"Thank you so much! This means so much to me! When do I start?"
"Well, as you know, London Fashion week finished up a few weeks ago, so everything has calmed down. You need to create a Resort Collection and have it ready by May 31. I'm talking about 15 or more designs. You will have plenty of time, but once you get going, it's a non-stop business! I'm glad your wedding is at the end of the month, you don't have to work hardcore till after it."
"Here are your keys!
"Thank you so much!!!"
"Thank you for everything! I won't let you down."
Wow! Caroline is on a roll. What will happen next?? Stay tuned!
