Everyone’s heard the adage, “you’ll never know who you’ll sit down next to at the airport/Starbucks/a restaurant.” I didn’t know how true this saying was until yesterday. I was editing these pictures at a Starbucks because the local coffee shop ran out of seats when two men sat down next to me.
One of them took over my bench and I was not very happy about it, until they asked me if I was a graphic artist. I told them that I was fashion blogging instead. Instantly, they lit up and asked me for my card and offered to invite me to a show THAT NIGHT downtown. They were a photographer and aspiring magazine owner. I couldn’t believe my luck.
I mean, it just so happened that the local coffee shop didn’t have seats, it just so happened that these two men sat next to me, and it just so happened that I had my business cards on me because I had been at College Fashion Week this weekend. After telling me that “there’s a reason for everything,” the two men left me with a press pass to a show starring Nathalia Jmag from Project Runway.
I’ll post a roundup of my exciting experience later this week, because I’m still counting my lucky stars that I even got to attend!
