I have been meaning to post my artistry on my blog for the longest, and what amazing opportunity to do so now. I’m a fashion designer of sorts, creating miniature gowns, denim and ready to wear to items, and have created a line of fashion driven occasion cards and gift tags, which I affectionately call, “Swag Bag Tags.” I began designing cards as a tween, and resumed my practice as an adult. Both my focus and my patience have grown tremendously since I began this journey, and I am eager to take the next step on this adventure.
In June, I released the Fashion Capitol of The World Collection, in an effort to raise funds to defray costs for travel expenses to auditions and advertising expenses such as printing my headshots, upon my arrival to New York City. I have continued the expansion of my collection, designing more dresses, and thus, more cards since my arrival in New York City. Little did I know, that in two short months, I’d have the opportunity of a lifetime to showcase my wares, serving as a vendor at the Helen Mills Event Space & Theater, one of the official venues hosting the 40th Anniversary of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week!
I have created a crowdfundraising campaign on online fundraising site, Go Fund Me, accessible by this link: http://www.gofundme.com/3oqgtk to raise funding for the payment of my vendor registration fee, in the amount of $1,000.00. I am well on my way, having raise one-quarter of the funding since the campaign creation. While a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, I have a few more to get to my own boutique at Fashion Week. Won’t join me, and make a donation? If not a donation, please share my journey and the link with a (fashion-forward) friend via facebook, LinkendIn, twitter, Pinterest, or via email.
Here are a few samples of my work:

It’s 9 PM, and I’ve got my patterns cut. It’s definitely going to be an all nighter. #NoSleepTillFashionWeek #WellAfter
