LYRICAL POET ROME…

My skillful friend Rome serenades me with his poetic voice…

[8/31, 8:34 PM]
What inspires your desire,
Set your world on fire.
Where imagination is not limited,
To the point that you feel your mind on fire.
Who am i and what do I stand for,
The is the question I So often ponder.
As look in the mirror,
While feeling the drift in time.
But I dare not outer,
This one thing over and over.
As the voice in my head gets louder and louder.
Again who am i,
And what have I accomplish.

That thing, That set your heart and desire on fire,

To the point you don’t know what to do,

It’s like wanting to breath,

But you’re find it hard to do.

So Please won’t you tell me what inspires you,

Is it music or art that inspires you.

Maybe it’s just sitting in the park,

To see who passes through.

Maybe is the words from their lips,

When they say howdy do.

Inspiration comes in many forms,

It’s all about which one you choose.

So tell me again what inspires you,

Is it the little things to be said,

Or maybe it’s the things we do that inspire you.

Who’s to blame,

Go on, And feel as inspired like I do.

I’m just glad to know, That I help to inspire you.

 

#2 POEM DATED [9/2, 12:12 PM]

They’re a lot who say their educated,But they’re ain’t. And those who pretend to be uneducated.But their fakes. Then tell you, what you see is what you get.

But that’s never the case, Because they’re filled all sorts of regrets.

Never looking back, Thus forever counting their steps.

And wondering what comes next.

Indie Fashion Models | Diamondfire Apparel

Lovely indie fashion model Tina AKA Young T.. She’s doing her thang in these poses… I was super happy to find out that she loves her dress. It was purely an adrenaline rush to be able to make this for her. This is my very first fashion dress design design for someone other than myself! Lol!

FROM IDEA, TO FABRIC, TO CREATION…

It all started from an idea… When I first saw the animal print material, it attracted me. I said to myself, “I’m a use this.” And then I looked for a color or tone that would match perfectly and found the solid color to coordinate. I said to myself, “This is gonna be a fashion dress!” Now, with the help of indie fashion model Young T, she made it COME ALIVE when she slipped into this dress.

It went from being two pieces of fashion fabric, to being a fashion dress on a hanger on the door, to being modeled by indie model #fuckwithayoungbitchMUCH LOVE AND A WARM SHOUTOUT!

 

Indeed Ms. Lucie is “having fun with it”, as she says she loves to do in fashion modeling. (smiling)

She is truly wonderful. It definitely was cool fun working with her last photo shoot. I love her playful and fun energy.

I can’t wait to call her and tell her that a new opportunity has arrived!

DESIGNER CHAT | Diamondfire Apparel | Official Indie Fashion Blog

 

 

Today I am SUPER excited as I add new clients to my fashion list! I gotta say, that when you are working on your business, brick by brick building it up, it is HELLA WORK! Because I am self taught in all of my skills and work history in fashion and I am not main stream – and somewhat of an introvert, (laughing) – it took me YEARS to start to uncover the resources and information necessary to succeed as a startup, entrepreneur or small business. Out of ALL of the challenges I have faced in this entire experience.. online marketing and networking really have been the most challenging for me.

One of the things I have learned is to NEVER blend in. Always stand out, in a productive and creative  way of course. Apply a similar strategy, like when you are going for a job – you don’t want to blend in, because you will then likely be categorized “like everyone else”. In whatever it is that you want to do or that you’re doing now, DON’T FOLLOW THE CROWD, LEAD THE CROWD. But I must give God the glory, because truly I am building, slowly but surely – HARD WORK DOES PAY OFF, EVEN EVENTUALLY!

I took a moment to work on some new pics for my indie models. Those girls are FANTASTIC! I appreciate them so much. It adds so much value when people believe in you and work with you – even when you’re starting small, ESPECIALLY when you’re starting small.

I have had conversations with many people who work independently and who work for themselves. It’s like music to my ears. There’s NOTHING like working independently and for yourself, doing what you LOVE. It no longer is work. It is a career path or a career choice indeed!

 

Shout out to ALL of you who said Yes to me, when you could have politely passed me by. Every engagement, every sign up, every constructive interaction, I Thank You for. I continue to upgrade and optimize my content, products and services – EXCLUSIVELY because of You. (Smiling)

In the laws of business nowadays, I have learned that it is extremely important to find your network, that group of supporters and engaging persons. I’m glad that I’m starting to find you all. My plan is to continue to develop new and engaging content for you to enjoy. And of course – as always, contact me with questions, concerns and feedback – anytime. I can be reached simply by joining this blog and “reply to this post” OR you can reach out by major my social media channels. Shout out to ALL of you who support what I do, who respect what I do and who LOVE what I do. You play a major role in my continuous inspiration and dedication and you FUEL my ambition and motivation!!

I appreciate EVERY SINGLE one of you. MUAH!

A Warm Shout Out to all of my friends and support systems nationwide and international. Every kind word, every following, every share, every like, all assistance and every word of positivity is truly a blessing to me.

Enjoy this new set of fashion photography of my girls.. Fashion Prodigies 1 and 2… Stay tuned, more PHOTO FIYAH coming soon to a hood near you, LMAO!

 Model Young T featuring Diamondfire Apparel by DesignerAfi

I’m super excited and super blessed 

to have the opportunity to collaborate 

with fashion model Young T

Our first fashion photo shoot was fun! 

The fashion dress she is modeling 

in these pics shown is the very first prototype!

She’s rocking a handmade fashion strapless bandeau dress with half and half solid and animal print design. 

Stretch fit dress design includes a ribbon drawstring!

Model Young T featuring Diamondfire Apparel by DesignerAfi

I was very pleased when I sent her the pics and not only did she mention that she LOVED the dress, 

but also I was even MORE pleased to see that she fits the dress well😁.. 

I made her dress based upon her mentioning that she is a size Small and looking at her photos. (It was later determined that she is actually a size X-Small.)

I am infused with more and more creativity and productivity through my works. 

I can’t waito make more fashion dresses for her. 

More complimentary colors, designs, patterns and prints. 

Even lighter weight materials for AZ’s upcoming spring/summer heat waves. 

More about Young T…

She was born in Chicago 

but raised in Phoenix. 

She is also blessed with a loving family including a boyfriend who has two children that she’s helped 

raise as her own. 

Her favorite colors are

 black, gray and white. 

Her fashion modeling specialties include laundry and bikini shoots 

but she is down for it all. 

It is also clear that she’s passionate about 

the youth and seeing them succeed. 

She also has participated in giving back to community through local volunteer work.

Young T 

is also an entertainer 

and writes and performs rap music. 

She’s an open book to get to know!

Get ready to see her more and more, 

as I plan to feature her 

all over my social media,

Fashion Model Lucie Diamondfire Apparel Photos by #DesignerAfi

Model Lucie is wearing  a handmade bandeau fashion tube dress  with half and half  solid and stripes pattern design.  This dress is stretch fit  and has a drawstring upper.

Again, I am Blessed 

to have another addition 

to my fashion portfolio… 

Lucie the model for Diamondfire Apparel fashion brand. 

As I begin to get to know more 

about Lucie, I am 

pleasantly intrigued and amazed… 

she replies to me: 

I am from Czechia in Central Europe. 

As for my favorite fashion colors, I like all the colors, but the color that I like to wear and I never get tired of is grey, accompanied by some others. I like to wear warm and fresh colors that match my “spring color type”,

I also like black. 

In fashion industry, 

I’d like to go as far as it takes me, 

I am 36 years old but I want to have fun with it.”

She continues to say, “I like the power of art to express feelings and important cultural messages through it’s visual and dramatic art and a life-style. 

I am passionate about self-improving, fulfilling my goals, being independent and making the most out of my life, through many aspects of it.

  

And your question 

about whether I have children… 

I have been nanny for many years and I love children, but I don’t have any on my own yet.”
