And so to part II, of the 3 piece suit, view from the back. Sharing a little story with you guys. I went to a fashion event, in support of my designer friend who was selling some of his garments. I took off my jacket, placed it on a chair to try on a coat he had made. I returned to the chair only to find my jacket had gone, I looked around to see a lady modelling my jacket in the mirror. I went over to her and said "hi, you've got my jacket", to which she replied "no I saw it first and I'm having it". I then said "you don't understand, its my jacket, I made it and wore it here, look at the label it has my name in it Coral Turner". As she removed the jacket and looked at the label she said "yes, but you could just be saying that" my designer friend intervened and explained that it was not one of his designs, and was in fact my jacket.
Crestfallen she handed me back my jacket, at which point I gave her a big hug, she was shocked, I explained that what she had done was a huge compliment. That morning, I was wondering if I should be putting the jacket into production as a 'made to order' piece. Our little faux pas summed it up perfectly. I always say 'pay attention to the signs', as the answers may not be delivered as you expected.
