2 year anniversary from Vaughn de Heart on Vimeo.
Today is the 2 year anniversary of my brand. I wanted to do something to celebrate so I decided to make a video. This story is kind of the precursor to meeting Nick and having that huge experience that you can read about on my story page. I met Nick 2 years ago to the day. This event happened to me about 8 months before the Nick incident (go here to read about it) so even before I met him I was kind of waiting, expecting something to happen to lead me in a direction to hopefully do something different. There are a lot of things shown in the video, but there are a few clips that come up at certain moments when I talk about something specific things because they have special significance.
The first is when I show the "Nous gardons le cardon" shirt right when I say that his words sent me into a rage is because that phrase roughly translated from french means "We will not loose heart." Because for whatever reason his words didn't deter me from what I was determined to do.
When I talk about the fashion industry being competitive and that people's perception could be wrong I show the "Les gens courageux"shirt which is french for "The fearless ones" because I believe that moving forward when people or perception are discouraging you is a fearless attribute.
And lastly when I talk about people who have supported me I show a picture of my brother and I from his wedding because my brother is my biggest supporter. Ever shirt design and pretty much ever move of the brand I run by him first. It's been like this from even before I started the brand with other things that I've attempted.
And a big thank you to the band Lemolo for letting me use their song "Open Air" you can find more info about them here.
