Here is the blogger's response:
I am absolutely humbled by your comment. You’ve given me the warm fuzzies… for real.
What you are doing is an amazing thing – in this day and age anyone who takes time and effort to teach the younger generations about what real quality clothing is about deserves all my praise. As you so eloquently mentioned, the differences between bespoke, mtm and off-the-rack are immense and yet most people don’t even know these terms make any difference in what a piece of clothing looks like on them.
And I don’t blame them. I blame the fashion/style industry for making it almost a non-issue what fit and quality really is. The fact that you have all these young women doing this and then expanding to menswear means there is a light at the end of the tunnel (and from the men’s end of the spectrum, it seems the interest in quality formal clothing is increasing as well… hope is never lost).
Please keep up the terrific work, Maria. What you’re doing is invaluable. Your comment and everything you are doing has got me inspired like I haven’t felt in a long, long time.
Feel free to use the link however you’d like. I am honored.
