I happily invite you to come with me as I design 24 looks for my next runway. This is a step in my life I am excited to share with you because it is a bridge to good things to come. It is also a bridge from me to you!
The truth is, for most of my life, I didn’t believe that I had the talent or ability to follow my dreams. Last year I reached out to my friends and followers around the world and asked for help in getting my runway to Seattle Fashion Week. Overnight, peoples support changed my life and within a few months I was walking down the runway with my team of models with 10 pieces I had designed and made. I was overwhelmed when other designers I greatly respected like Michelle Lesniak complemented my show. It was one of the best moments in my life.
Never in a million years did I imagine that my journey would bring me to where I am today as a student at FIDM in San Francisco. I have had the opportunity to meet so many people that have inspired me creatively and motivated me to reach for the stars and follow my dreams. The greatest thing I have learnt from the experience of this last year is that you won’t know what is possible until you try. That is the same attitude and excitement that I have for this next journey.
So come with me as I design 24 looks for my new runway. I will be posting photos and telling the story of what it is like to design a runway from concept to finish. I will post weekly about my inspiration, my sketches, and my finished products which will be modelled in places I love in San Francisco. My goal is to take this collection to New York, LA, or Vancouver next year! But no matter what happens on this journey, I know that I will be proud to have given it my heart and to have followed my dreams.
I can’t do it without you. So lets design our worlds. I promise it will be fun!!!
