How Black Panther Became a Fashion Force to Reckon With

It’s a rare sight to come across movies that not only capture the hearts of their audience but also make a lasting imprint on the world of fashion. I can see why millions of people rushed to the cinemas to watch Black Panther. It is certainly worth all the hype and buzz it’s receiving right now.

Black Panther has definitely taken the fashion industry by storm, with everyone strolling to watch in their beautiful African attires. The ingenuity invested in every outfit in the movie is priceless. Have you seen the movie?

Black Panther Fashion Message

Black Panther sent a strong message to the fashion industry. Aside from the outfits, it gave designers of colour the opportunity to fully express their creative ideas in fashion. This was a privilege that is unfortunately difficult to come by in the industry. In all my years studying the fashion world, I learned that talent alone is not enough to get your work to the forefront. It’s so much more than that. You need connections and money to make your way in. So unless you are well connected and rich or in the position to get financial help, say with Lendgreen Installment Loans, to kick your fashion business moving, you would struggle. 

Black Panther created an avenue for designers of colour to show off the beauty on African fashion. It opened people’s eyes to how beautiful and colourful African fashion can be. Which would in time create more awareness of African designs and fashion designers of colour.

 

The Fashion Buzz

I believe the buzz around Black Panther is shining lights on African and African-American designers. Black Panther helped inspire pieces with the infusion of African prints and a dash of African culture represented in creative designs. It’s strange how African-inspired fashion have been left unnoticed for so long. But thanks to the coming of Black Panther we are not only given the opportunity to see African designs in its full light, we also get to see how it relates to the future. Black Panther shows a world which is technologically advanced thus giving people the chance to see how African-inspired fashion can fit today and the future.

What I Believe

To me this is extremely exciting. I’m always happy when minorities are given a voice. And there’s no better way to speak up than through your creative works.

I see this new development in the fashion scene yielding a positive response. More people will be open to trying what’s new, a culture that they’re not familiar with. As the hype for Black Panther continues, there will be more people embracing futuristic African styles. I also believe that famous designers will start incorporating a touch of African to their designs. But most of all, I am absolutely hopeful that more designers of colour will be given an equal chance to showcase their ingenuity. The fashion industry is dynamic and highly responsive to what’s happening in the world. There’s a lot to thank Black Panther for. I know that there’s more for us to see.

5 Signs that freelancing is not working for you and how to fix it

I must confess that I have experienced times during my freelancing journey where I felt like I was not cut out for freelancing. This may come as a surprise but I want to be 100 percent authentic and honest with you.

But feeling like you’re not cut out for freelancing is completely different from actually not being cut out for freelancing. As I persisted through my dream to live a freedom-based laptop lifestyle, I learned the difference.

Life as a freelancer is attractive, flexible and you get to be your own boss, determine your rates and set your schedule. But what happens when it doesn’t turn out as planned. Should you quit? I have been freelancing for years and have been there. I know how you feel.

Here are 5 clear signs that freelancing is not working for you and how you can fix it.

 

You don’t enjoy what you’re doing

When you started freelancing you actually loved what you did. It wasn’t always about the money. New projects got you excited. You were always open for a challenge. But it’s been 6 months now and you start dreading another project. What ever happened?

The answer is simple. You grew comfortable with where you are. And the best way to shake the feeling of dread is to do something new. Try different styles, different approaches, and different methods. Sometimes changing where you work can make a huge difference. Take your laptop to a nearby café and get busy. Introduce something fresh in your work life.

 

You don’t have a good work-life balance

Have your weekends disappeared? Do you work late into the night every day? When was the last time you actually made time for yourself?

When working at your 9-to-5, it was easy to know when work ended. After work, all you had was free time to do whatever you wished. Weekends were off-limits. But as a freelancer, you may have the entire 24 hours dedicated to work and this can make you lose all sense of personal life.

Set clearly defined working hours and stick with them. If you want weekends off, then set your work schedule in a way that you can have weekends solely to yourself.

You’re overwhelmed with changes in the industry

Establishing yourself as an expert in your industry takes work. But things change pretty quickly. It comes to a point where you start feeling left out on all the latest trends and innovations in the industry. It’s overwhelming and you end up on a plateau with your knowledge and skills.

I struggled with this feeling for a while but during one of my quiet moments it hit me – the reason I was overwhelmed was because I was busy going under in the industry instead of going deeper.

Start off where you’re at and dig deep to find more. Improve on what you know, rather than going after every new thing. Don’t rush it. Take it step-by-step and most of all enjoy the process.

 

You’re worn out

It’s great to have new clients but if your income depends on acquiring new clients everyday then it can get really stressful. Its’ a horrible feeling to be weighed down by a lot of work.

What helped me was to create passive income streams. Passive income streams help to boost your income while you spend your time doing things you enjoy.

Of course, as a freelancer, you define your income. But chasing after clients who will pay you a low rate can wear you out fast. What will help is for you to raise your rates and go after quality high paying clients who will value your work. You can raise your rates and work for fewer people and still make a comfortable income while you have better working hours.

 

The loneliness is getting to you

Being a freelancer is a lonely journey. Although you have the potential to earn more, have flexible hours and actually do what you love, you have to do most of it alone.

To beat the loneliness, go for meet ups and meet other freelancers. Collaborate with other freelancers on a project or course. Join a mastermind. Get connected with people in your industry and invite them over for coffee. You’ll be surprised at how many freelancers are in your area.

 

Are you freelancing? Is it working for you?
