Fashion Fortune, meow… ^..^

A social media venture with an advertising corporation went up and down the drain in TWO weeks. Resistance from internal and external factors forced my termination. In my second attempt in this industry and despite my initial optimism, it figures, because these factors are from old network of contacts L

One month after this, casual conversations led to a new fashion social media venture J I still have a destiny with fashion! With new networks, partner and the Japanese Fortune Cat as my social media avatar, I am destined to succeed! :-O This leads to this article.

What is the story behind Fortune Cat? Below is the most inspiring story:

‘A frequent attribution to several Japanese emperors, as well as to Oda Nobunaga and samurai Ii Naotaka, is that one day the luminary passed by a cat, which seemed to wave to him. Taking the cat's motion as a sign, the unknown nobleman paused and went to it. Diverted from his journey, he realized that he had avoided a trap that had been laid for him just ahead. Since that time, cats have been considered wise and lucky spirits. Many Japanese shrines and homes include the figurine of a cat with one paw upraised as if waving—hence the origin of maneki-neko, often referred to as kami-neko in reference to the cat's kami or spirit.’

May the Maneki-neko bring fortune in my fashion future!
