Unfortunately on the day before we left our Creative Director sent us an email saying that he intended on quitting at the end of the month. We were, understandably, incredibly frustrated with this new information as we had not done anything, other than a photo shoot, he had scheduled for us to do. He stated he would complete all that he had promised and with this information I met him on the streets of NYC to discuss things. After an almost immediate insult to Christina upon our meeting our voices became louder and our words less thoughtful. I was very hurt and very angry and unfortunately I ended up letting him have it in a crowd of people outside of the Hilton Garden Inn!!!
I do not feel bad about what I did, I do however, feel stupid for not seeing what was going on in the beginning. I feel hurt and awful that Christina had to listen to his horrible insults towards her. I feel sad and confused for Dave having to step in and tell him to stop yelling at me. This whole ordeal was an awful experience and one I will NEVER forget. I am grateful for the lessons learned, however, I had not let myself feel betrayed and hurt and so the process of moving on and moving forward was long. After realizing that all of my hopes and dreams had been ripped unceremoniously out from under me I basically shut down.
I apologize for my absence. I am slowly coming back to reality and I have put my hopes back in to showing in NYC this coming Spring for the Fall 2011 Season. I hope that you have not lost faith in me and I pray that I will come back smarter and stronger because of this experience. Thank you all for sticking by my side and supporting me through this difficult time. I wont forget it :)
