I have to admit that being asked to cover a young children’s Fancy Dress Fashion Show, for possible inclusion in the blog, did fill me with some trepidation.
After all, the phrase “don’t work with children and animals” didn’t become famous for no reason.
Now, before you get all hot under the collar, I have had children of my own and now have super grand children, so I AM CHILD FRIENDLY.
The event I needed to document was the launch of a new line of fancy dress by Viktoria Shop, an innovative entrepreneurial undertaking in Banja Luka.
The event, although “boutique” in size was amazingly well or organised.
Not only did it preview new Costumes on the traditional “cat walk”, but also featured children showing their dancing prowess as well as 2 young ladies singing exceedingly professionally.
To say I was impressed, would be an understatement.
Young, 13 year old Viktoria, told me more about the event and Viktoria Shop on the following Podcast.
My personal takeaway was, that when the trend in Bosnia and Herzegovina is to be negative about taking the initiative and control of your life, small entrepreneurial steps like this proves that all is needed is an idea and some passion.
The success WILL come eventually.
