Friend Request from Olivier Rousteing - Balmain - Jewelry - Fashion House

Posted: Mar 21 2014

So last night as I was watching the Quebec leader's debate over our future, a Facebook friend request popped up on my phone. I was taken aback for a few seconds by the person who was friend requesting Aqua Skye. It was Olivier Rousteing - yes, the creative director for Balmain! I admit to feeling light-headed and giddy for a few minutes (who am I kidding, even now I am excited and it is almost 12 hours later!!). So, as any sane woman would do, I accepted! Apart from Franco Moschino (who passed a while ago),  Albert Elbaz, Riccardo Tisci,  John Galliano and Alexander McQueen (whom as well is gone) getting a request from the creative genius from Balmain is on top of my list of "feel good" fashion accomplishments. Of course, it crossed my mind that it could be a fake account but the sheer effect it has done on me (us) is enough to propel me (us) to put my energy into making Aqua Skye the best that it can be.

I have been struggling with what direction to take my business since the devastating fire and the political/economic uncertainty in Montreal at the moment. Little things and gestures is all it takes for me to focus on what it is I really want in life and that is to re-organize my thoughts and ideas and come up with a plan. It is already in motion. I'm crossing my fingers that it's the right way to go. At the end of the day, risk is part of the fashion game and I've been at it for quite some time now - why stop now. Thank you Olivier for giving me that much needed kick in the ass on the road to greatness!!
