Isn’t it amazing how we usually end up in the right place at the right time?
I was participating in a small show in Toronto last month and a beautifully dressed and accessorized woman came over to talk to me. She was fascinated by glamjulz and had all kinds of questions about how I came up with my designs, the quality of the pieces etc….. She then informed me that she was a buyer for a new store in Karachi, Pakistan called Showstopper.
Being a Canadian girl, when I think of Pakistan, I think of how volatile it is there. All of the upheaval, pain and suffering that these people endure every day, I honestly never imagined that there may be some kind of “normalcy” in their lives. I asked Fatima about this and she agreed, saying that everyday people put their lives at risk when they leave their front door, but they have become smarter, more strategic and and are learning to enjoy their lives. They still have presentations to make, parties to attend, business deals to close and gifts to give… and they need great accessories!
Fatima loved the vibrancy and colour of glamjulz and how “happy” the pieces looked. Fatima and I arranged to meet in Toronto by the harbour the following week, and she chose some lovely necklaces and earrings for the store… glamjulz is now officially international! Wooo Hoooo!!!
I hope that the beautiful women of Pakistan will enjoy the great energy of their glamjulz pieces, and that love, peace and happier days lie ahead for all of them.
