Last Saturday, I went along for the ride to San Mateo to this expo to connect buyers to fashion houses. Seemed like everyone was there. You know as you walk along, everything starts looking the same. Then I saw a small booth with a person sitting alone, but not lonely, and I stopped and had a chat with Antonella, who was representing this new line, made in Italy. Before I knew it was made in Italy, I connected with it and could tell it was different. And born of love. I hope they succeed!
I've been working on recreating a dress for Mary Armentrout, who has her own dance company. This bodice waiting for it's skirt. She's bringing me the fabric for the skirt this morning, so when I make and attach it, I will post a photo when the dress is all done. The original was made with fabric that doesn't stretch at all, and this one has a four-way stretch, perfect for dancers/athletes! I'm happy with the way it's turning out so far:
Universe, please bring me more clients like Mary! And let's not forget Cat!
We love bikes. How can you tell?
This fabric shouted "buy me and make a bike friendly skirt!" It is the very first item I made when I decided to be a fashion designer! It is from Japan and I used ideas from Samurai costumes for design elements.
