Full day of fashion in Denver!
|January 9, 2012||Posted by admin under Uncategorized|
Today has been a inspirational fulfilled day of Fashion! First off I was texting Samuel Schimek at 1:30 AM an emailing Josh Sapir at 1:40 Am to get my Kickstarter video launched, they actually contacted me first I’m not that demanding to contact them at that hour to get this going. I was pleasantly surprised that they were awake and working hard to meet my deadline. I strongly recommend working with them if you need anything as amazing as this!
I’m a judge at the ADCD Paper Fashion Show
And on the Sew News Blog
Please share with your friends to get this Project Funded!
After getting my Kickstarter going I then met up with The Art Museum to finalize ideas for my Forever Darling V fashion show, and let me just tell you, you don’t want to miss out on this event or the party/market the next day! I’m so thrilled to finally be delegating, so I can focus on design! Forever Darling V is going to take this show to a whole new level! Watch out Denver we have a ton in store for you this year
After meeting with the Art Museum, I went shopping at the Goodwill for supplies for their Goodwill Fashion Exchange fashion show that will be happening on Feb 8th Click here for more info http://www.goodwilldenver.org/programs . I’m participating as one of the judges but will also be making an outfit using only items from the Goodwill with a budget of $75. I stocked up on a bunch of sweaters, some shoes, a purse and I have no IDEA what I plan to make. I do know I need to get started on it though and it needs to be amazing with all the press surrounding this event! I want it to have sort of a 70s feel with a great print, those 2 things are in this year so I want to play off of that.
After Goodwill I then went and met with Stephen Replin, the only fashion go to attorney in Denver! He is helping me to create a contract for the designers in Forever Darling V and help with my clothing business. I find as things get bigger and becomes more of a business things get really complicated! It’s getting crazier for me to keep up with everything since I am juggling 3 businesses. I also managed to get color today too for my hair business before going to my last item on the agenda.. The Fashion industry meeting
I went there thinking I wonder if this is just going to be a bitch session talking about all the things we don’t have in Denver and not really focusing on ways to change or address it. I really left there completely wrong, it was a super productive meeting and I really want to be involved in some way to help push the fashion industry in Denver forward. It’s really nice how collaborative Denver is and how we are all willing to come together to create a sustainable fashion industry. I’m really looking forward to the next meeting. I was also able to network and realized I have never officially met Diane with Tactile. Her company sounds awesome and I’ve never even been there! Click here to check it out http://www.tactilearts.org After talking to her we discussed possibly having a launch party for my clothing line at Tactile once my funding is reached! It would be invite only for about 100 people. I may create a contest to be invited to the party.
Tomorrow 9 news might be coming by my house, I have to go get things cleaned up and EAT finally!
