Last season, I used a site called Kickstarter as a vehicle to raise money to cover the expenses for my premiere collection. Fabulously fashionable sponsors (you know who you are!!) came to my support and through their generous donations I was able to pay for fabric, models, hair & make-up, a photographer, videographer, professional lighting and PR. Holy cow!
What a great experience! For those of you who frequent this blog, you know that I received a fair amount of press and the show was a success. I'm dying to do it again. As a new designer on the scene (under my own label), I need to prove my staying power as well as establish my design aesthetic. In order to do that, I need to show more than one season. I have a lot more to offer than just pretty evening dresses, though I do love them so!
Now, I'm back on Kickstarter looking for new sponsors for my Fall 2011 Collection. Think of it as contributing to a worthy cause -- a fashionable cause. If I am able to dress the world, we could put the fashion police out of business! If only!
