The tides are breaking, for the moment.
Until the monsoon comes, I want you to remember something.
You were created for an amazing purpose. You are born into a world of stars and wonder, fires that can rage or warm you. Waters that can steal or save you.
Before you see the waves return, seek safety in the arms of one another.
Seek safety in the kindness of the ones you love.
Seek to offer kindness to the ones you don’t.
When the surges of this big ocean return, and you have devoted yourself to kindness, you will be forever indebted to the shapes you’ve seen.
the way that water lapses and recedes. The way the waves carry impurities into the depths of the sea. The way the water reflects a perfect image of you, and me.
For a long time, I’ve wanted to run a clothing company, not as a big shot designer on par with the stuff that goes to fashion week, but rather something along the lines of designs that connect in a meaningful way. Of course, there are a million other clothing brands out there that do the same thing, but I’ve always believed that clothing is a way for us to connect with one another.
That being said, when I started RAC (Random Acts Clothing – turned Random Acts Creations) I didn’t really have a long-term plan for what I wanted to do, and I really, really didn’t have a clue about trademarks on names. So I kept working and making designs, never really releasing anything for the “clothing company” I owned because it wasn’t really mine. I outsourced a lot of my work to third parties and it became such a hassle that I put the whole operation on hold. I couldn’t manage the work that I hadn’t researched or prepared to take on.
That being said, I’ve come to a new conclusion. I’ve moved to rework all the aspects of my business and with that came the realization that I need to send RAC off with as much love as I created it with.
This is the beginning of the end for RAC + everything I wanted it to be.
But it is the start of so much more.
Over the next few weeks, you’ll be seeing as I upload my blog posts + social media posts that I will be releasing all of my withheld inventory for the uncertain future of RAC. I will be dropping all of it and making everything I had in my backlog available for sale. It might take a bit, there is a lot I need to work through and a lot I need to decide whether or not it is worth finishing.
But it is all coming, and this is only a taste of what’s to come.
Like I said
There is a new wave coming.
