MY COLLABORATION WITH ADIDAS WOMEN SA
12 December 2016
I have been obsessed with Adidas apparel for as long as I can remember. So when the Adidas Women South Africa team contacted me to collaborate, I was immediately drawn to tears. I remember the day so well, about a month or so ago. I had just finished up with a client at court and I had pulled up my mail whilst walking back to the office.
And there it was.
An email from Adidas Women South Africa sitting all perfectly in my inbox. I stopped dead in my tracks. Tears beginning to well up in my eyes as I read more and more of the email.
With only amazing things to say about me and my transformation journey, finally came those words. They wanted to collaborate with me!!! Holy moly!!! Is this even real life???
I remember being so excited that I couldn’t think of who to tell first. What a rollercoaster of emotions. Excitement. Nerves. Overwhelmed. Humbled.
I remember sitting on the side of the road, struggling to even begin with my email reply. How do you even begin thanking a brand for an opportunity like this?
I eventually calmed myself and managed a reply. But it was one of those replies you send whilst holding your breath when clicking the send button. Hahaha, as I write this, I realise how dramatic I sound. But seriously guys, this was ADIDAS!!!
A couple weeks later I received my first seed drop. I was so excited when I saw that big beautiful box arrive, I couldn’t wait to open it!! Inside was soooo many wonderful goodies and a personalised hand written note to little old me. Then tears began again.
If you had said to me a year ago that I would have the opportunity to work with Adidas Women South Africa, I would have laughed you out of the room. Of all the things this journey has brought me, working with Adidas has without a doubt been a massive highlight for me in 2016.
I cannot wait to see what 2017 will bring and I am looking so forward to collaborating more with Adidas Women South Africa in the new year.
