I did it!

So my garments are finished and dropped off at Union Rose! I am so happy, excited and nervous that I am now officially in a store. This was something I always thought of but wasn’t sure I wanted to do it. You know – be safe and do the occasional fashion show and special project for someone I knew was always the safest route. I will still do that. BUT it’s now time to take my passion to the next level. And I am so lucky to live in a city that is so open and excited about locally designed and manufactured garments. This is just the beginning!

Lets DO this!

So I didn’t exactly blog and twitter while I was in Vegas. It was just too much to cart around a laptop. But all in all this trip was most definitely productive. I am so glad we stayed an extra day. Along with our trip to the Textiles Expo, we were able to do lots of sight seeing as well as much needed dancing in the evenings. This week my fabric should start arriving. I was much more serious, if not frugal, when choosing my fabric this time. I knew what I needed, did inventory before I left and know my limits much more! I find that knowing my limits makes me so much more productive – I can’t even begin to tell you how important this is!

Las Vegas and 2 days!

YES! Alyson and I go to a fabric show every year in LV. Besides having incredible amounts of fun we also get fantastic deals on fabric. Basically I never buy fabric any more in the actual store – mark ups are a bitch. Anyways, I am going to do my very best to blog and tweet along the way. It’s a fun trip and I want to share as much as possible. I am so glad we’re staying 3 nights i/o of 2, there is just to much to pass up! xo ALSO, 4 other super fab chicks are joining the trip! We’re definitely hitting up old Vegas – Dallas style!
Also, I will soon be selling my line in Union Rose! 2010 is shaping up to be pretty good!

RIP Alexander McQueen

A. McQueen passed away on Feb 11th. I still can’t believe that such a talented man has ended such a short life. At just 40 he was already a household name. Something a great many of us within the fashion industry hope achieve in a life time. These are some of my most favorite McQueen pieces/collections. It seems rude to only name a few but these specific ones are always in the back of my mind.

These shoes, AMAZING!

I am in love with this jewel studded dress.

Strong shoulders, amazing job on the silhouette

The clutter in the center of the runway are elements from past shows.
