It was not until I was about to turn 50 years old that I found my footing, my calling, my purpose. I found myself working throughout India and had the same time, become awed by the concepts of sustainability and consciousness, I yearned to return to New York and so I did. All of a sudden, as if a eureka moment transpired after all the years of doing a little of this and a little of that, it all began to make sense and I accepted what I felt was my purpose. I wanted to make a difference in my world, my country and my city. I wanted to influence the future leaders of the next generation. I began to suddenly see everything I had done up to that moment in my career through a new and refined lens. It no longer became about wearing designer and tailored suits. I wanted to be part of a network — a movement that was contributing to the betterment of humanity and saving the planet where we inhabit. I became my personal version of “woke.” The planet was being destroyed and I was contributing to it. I started to analyze all I was doing. I had learned about many things, but I was no longer an expert at nothing. I had found my purpose. In 2018, my career transformed into Kelley Blevins and Partners -the first of which is Mexico City based friend and now business partner, Cesar ESPINOSA and recently celebrating 2021, we decided to launch with our strategic partners, Alison SPEAR and Anna KLINGMANN, our sustainable design platform, Redesigning The World.
