What’s really in a name?
For me, it’s important that a chosen name have some type of meaning, and lately I’ve been thinking more and more about names in general (this might have something to do with the up-coming task of finding the perfect name for my soon to come second child).
I always felt a bit hurried starting this blogg, just wanted to get going sewing and writing, and never really taking the time to find the perfect name.
In the beginning I did felt it was a pretty good name – It did clearly convey what this site is all about (fashions through the history of mankind).
But lately I’ve been growing more and more tired of it.
And with my decision to turn this hobby into a (small) business, the importance of the name once more struck me.
Since I started taking commissions, I’ve have several inquires about making costumes for gentlemen – which I’d kindly to passed down, since both the construction and tailoring of mens clothes are quite different from women’s wear, and nothing I feel confident enough to take on (also, I find it a complete bore…).
Another thing I’ve been thinking a lot about lately are the mening of words, and what we’r really saying underneath, just using our regular wording/vocabulary.
Think about it – I make clothes from all of the “History of Mankind”, but in fact I only want to make women’s wear…
And with the women’s revolution finally making some progress (I know they been working tierdless for about 100 years, and made lots of sufficinet improvments to womens life over the years), like the chance to a female president in US, the “Me-too” movement and with the terms like “Herstory” starting to be more commonly used.
I thought it time to start to favour my own gender in my day to day talk.
So when my boyfriend sudgested I rename my Blogg/brand to “Fashion through Herstory” I emidiatly liked the idea.
So here it is – my new blogg/brand name:
“Fashion through Herstory”
Hope you like it as much as I do 🙂
(I’m currently working on switching the name on both the blogg, facebook and Instagram, but it might take a while until everything is completely fixed. Please let me know if you’r having any trouble with one of my sites).
