It has taken me far too long to get this post up. Mostly because I can't think of the words to sum up my experience of helping produce/design for/and model in my first fashion show. The last five months for me have put me on such a wild ride. I've spoke before about going back to school and studying fashion design and in the last five months I was able to watch and work toward unfolding a dream on mine; having my own designs in a fashion show.
Along with designing for the Fashion Arte fashion show I was also on the production team. AND. WHAT. A. LEARNING. EXPERIENCE. IT. WAS. From understand and working with in budgets, seeking sponsorships, promoting the show to local media outlets, organizing model calls and tackling day of show duties and many times improvising; I have walked away from this experience holding onto the statement that this is one of the coolest things I've ever done and been apart of!
Because I am at a loss for words in summing up the entire experience you can check out some of my other posts leading up to the show that cover some of the process in creating my swimwear. (my heart is mostly exploding :):):):))
Leading up to the show myself and some of the other talented designers had our work featured on The Tucson Morning Blend I have attached the segment below along with a news article covering my transition from athletics to the fashion world.
I am so grateful for this experience and for everyone who has been supportive on this journey and encourages me when the road gets rough. Look out for Wavelength Swimwear later on this summer. I am still accepting donations to this project as I move into, manufacturing and getting the business underway.
Again, thank you everyone who has been on this journey with me and supports me.
To view my segment on the runway fast forward to 45:29 :)
