After almost 10 years of studying and working in the fashion industry Kristin Potenti, fashion advisor and clothing designer, is striving to fulfill the needs of women shoppers. She recently launched a website, Self Assured, which educates women about the most common body types and advises what silhouettes look best on those figures. The site also talks about the latest fashion trends for women and what body types they work best on.

Kristin's current endeavor, which officially began in April of this year, is launching the brand Self Assured as a moderately priced, stylish clothing line for confident, sexy, fashion savvy women in their prime.

Over the past few days I feel like the legwork I have done in the past three weeks is coming to fruition. I am putting together a nice compilation of fabric vendors and am wishing I hadn’t given my email to the Hong Kong Trade Development Council as my inbox is full of introductions from manufacturers.

Why is this significant?? Well, it is just another screaming sign about the instant gratification we seek in this modern day world. Some things take time, patience and a little work. I also realized what a key partner Trade Councils and Government agencies can be, domestically and abroad. Their goal is to foster successful partnerships between people trying to do business as well as educate about the various trade agreements.

The point…patience is a virtue. Continue to network, research and reach out to people and you will find what you are looking for. Even better, someone else may find what they are looking for in you.
