I just wanna give a huge shout out to all the super happy and positive people there are in the fashion industry! OK, I know no one can be happy and positive ALL the time but ya get the idea. There are enough snooty self gratifying “know it all” individuals within the giant family that it’s actually quite boring now (I really did just yawn). Anyways, Alyson and I were talking about this and there are quite a bit of people out there that just skip that debbie-downer business and I say a big thank you to you!! You will…
So last night myself and Alyson attending the premier of “Blue Fiddles”. This is a web based series that was filmed here in Portland – full of Portland actors, actresses, photographers, designers…. well we both had the honor of helping out. Alyson lent clothes for the shooting and I did the premier dress for Nena Botto – the main character, writter, director and producer. She looked fantastic! Channel 8 news was there to capture the big night. Check out the clip! http://www.kgw.com/thesquare/New-web-series-Blue-Fiddles-premieres-at-Hollywood-Theater-82644512.html
I get so excited when I step back and view the cool work space that Alyson and I effectionatly call Nashionland. It’s rarely clean, thread is strewn everywhere and quit possibly a few too many dirty dishes… BUT it houses every possible luxery one must need to create the garments they dream off. And that my dear, is heavan. I made a dress for a women who is starring in, directing, producing and wrote a webisode called Blue Fiddle. She will wear it to the premier. This is my wonderful mess.
A co-working of mine shared this wonderful pattern site with me. It’s full of helpful pattern techniques and short cuts. I can always use some help when expanding my pattern skills – this def helps when I have a vision of something I want to make but come to a brick wall when it’s time to make it real! http://www.patternschool.com/
