Passionxproject x #BahamasFashionWeek
Can you call something a passion if you’re not constantly working on it? I wonder that all the time when I think about my @passionxproject Instagram page. I’d like to think I’m passionate about it and when I actually complete an interview and transcribe it and hear the gems people drop, it invigorates me. However, I often let things in the way of me just doing it - work, time constraints, awkwardness, no one to come with me, lack of leads, fear of approaching strangers and other excuses if we’re keeping it real.
During Bahamas Fashion Week, I decided I was going to shut down my excuses and do my best to get several features during the 3 day event. I ended up only going one of the days but still got a decent amount of features on that one day. But after all of my dedication to getting those interviews, I got the crushing blow that the computer crashed and all of the pictures from that night were gone. I’ll be honest I was pissed. I finally stepped outside of my comfort zone and got interviews from mostly strangers and all of it was gone.
It took me a few days to regroup. How can you have an IG project with no pictures? I got myself together and conducted a twitter poll to see how I could work around having no pictures, and featuring them here on my blog was the overwhelming winner. I’m still going to make some of my favorite quotes into IG pictures but at least here you get a chance to see more of the longform responses.
I present to you @passionxproject at #BahamasFashionWeek:
That‘s some of my favorite parts. I saved some just for Instagram! Be sure to follow the page on IG @passionxproject. Also if you can think of people that are worth a feature, be sure to comment below, send me an email or tweet me. I want to keep this going for a long time.
