After my first blog post in the early morning hours, when I woke up afterwards the feeling was still heavy upon me. They say the first step is the most difficult, it wasn't , only it was substantial.

The feeling got me thinking and connecting to a certain emotion we call anticipation. Whenever you create something , close to your heart , that you put your feelings into... and you present it to the world, each one goes through the rush of anticipating a response. 

I am feeling the same , anticipating my first readers, the first comments , the first blogger friends :) The feeling led to the inception of this post about designer anticipation - the rush , the excitement , the feeling of being backstage before a show. I share below a pick of pictures that I find expressive and also Chanel's resort 2013 behind the scenes video. It's funny how my favorite part in it is when Karl Lagerfeld is shown strolling through the backdrop - the calm of accomplishment - of being part of something you are proud of !
