It has certainly been a while since I updated you all on our progress, but it’s been an intense time. I can now say with much pride that we have a fully functioning Lucy Rose prototype in the form of the LR4. I can wear it (albeit gingerly as it’s slightly too big!) and it does the job that nearly eight years ago I wondered for the very first time whether a shoe could do!
Haven’t been here in a while, and there’s good reason for that – we’ve been busy. Busy designing and making the LR4.
We’ve done it. We’ve got another prototype (the LR3) and I’m trying to soak in the moment and realise that it’s actually just happened.
So the past few weeks have been incredibly exciting for Lucy Rose! I finally feel as though I am breaking through the walls I have been banging on for so long.
Now, I’ve been teasing you all about giving you some news in the New Year and here it is. Very soon I will have a third prototype of the Lucy Rose shoe. We’re calling it the ‘LR3’ for obvious reasons and I am beyond excited!
It’s my last post before Christmas and naturally, it’s a time of reflection. This past year has been what I’ve been wanting to do for years. Finally start working on my business - properly.
I’m sure most of us have heard those words spoken back to us when we reveal a plan or goal whether is losing weight or launching a product. It instantly puts the fire out doesn’t it? I want to answer back in my best non-teenage voice “I don’t know HOW yet, but I will”.
“The quality of being graceful and stylish in appearance or manner”.
I want to do a blog post this week on the magical coincidences of life. That space in between fate and proactivity where progress manifests. I’ve often been told, especially from my Dad that you have to meet chance halfway – you have to be in the right place at the right time for a magical moment to happen.
As the saying goes, if you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together. This week I had a great meeting with a shoe consultant who has been in the industry for years. As someone new in the industry (and extremely naïve), I was worried about this meeting. I thought it could go one of two ways; either extremely positive about the concept and how she could really help me. Or feeding my doubt of how hard it’s going to be. Thankfully, it was the former.
