Aaltje Kramer

naive melody
I want to become a fashion designer. I want to create beautiful things. I want to tell stories. I want to make a difference. I want to share my work with the world. I want to be happy. I want to explore the beyond. I want to be busy with fashion all the time. I want to be an author. I want to inspire people. I want to learn my whole life.
but I don't want to sell my soul to mass-production in china and I don't want to just sew in the attic for friends and family.
this sounds quite naive and unrealistic. but I think a lot of artists and designers have this conflict of being able to do what you like best or want the most while at the same time trying to make your living out of it. 
how does idealism work in reality?
is it possible to make a profession out of your passion?
these questions scare me a little. but more I am curious to find out how this conflict evolves during this year so that I can finish the academy and start my career.
