Interview with Fashion Designer Mercedes Gonzalez
Hi There..... Don’t you think it’s a long time overdue I published another Fashion Designer interview? How about I give you some inside knowledge of the Fashion industry today?
Yes? I couldn’t agree with you more. No? Too bad, because there's a Fashion Designer Interview on the menu today. 😜
I know I am a mean girl. Self-knowledge is the key to wisdom, and since I have known this for a while, you can imagine how wise I have become. 😁
Sometimes, though, I feel as if I am the most stupid person on this planet. Maybe I am, and I only assume to be wise. Who will tell? You perhaps? 😨
I can be a real absent-minded professor sometimes. Thinking I am going to do something and then I get up, my brain goes blank, and I don’t remember what it was I was planning to do. Or asking my husband if he needs something from the supermarket. Then I get there and take home all kinds of things I don’t need, but forget the one thing I required. 😄
I used to have the same problem with cleaning. Before we moved here 4 years ago, we had a house with our living room, kitchen downstairs. On the first floor, 2 bedrooms, and one more bedroom on the second floor. 😊
I remember starting in the kitchen, for instance, then thinking this belongs in the bedroom. As I went to the bedroom, there would always be something that needed my attention. I would end up cleaning things all around the house but never got an entire room done. 😳
There must be more people like me. I can’t believe, or better, refuse to believe I am the only absent-minded professor. 😏
I wonder if Mercedes Gonzalez is like me? Probably not because she is the 52-year-old Director and Fashion Designer for Proof of Concept. 😊
I work as a fashion industry strategist and I own a boutique and brand.
LOL, it’s how I make a living.
I have been in the business for about 30 years. My retail store and brand have both been profitable since they started. I have been successful because I don’t listen to business advice.
I love everything Prada even named 2 of my dogs after the brand.
It all depends on my mood. It doesn’t fit one style.
On the bargain rack.
I influence over 100 million dollars in OTB (the budgets retailers have).
You can look at my social media @mercedesgpc I just posted something today.
Dressing down for work.
I only give advice on how to make money on fashion, not on what to wear. Ugly sells. 😊 #notjoking
Diana Vreeland, she wasn’t a pretty girl but had personal style.
I also am an author of a fashion book called Chronicles of a fashion buyer.
You should really check out her Instagram shop. She has a lot of cool Tees and very cute shirts. Thank you, Mercedes for taking the time to answer my questions. 😍
