The Runway show came and went this past Saturday, and it was truly a great night. Everything went smoothly and I hope everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thanks to everyone who helped set up the runway/chairs/stage/lighting, etc (Jon, Gary, Mathew, etc and of course my amazing husband Martin, who always goes way above and beyond for me) - that was a TON of work, and I think during my first show I was a little bit oblivious to it all - but this time I definitely noticed how hard everyone was working, and it meant so much to me. Also a big thanks to Alisha Nichole and Mandi Nixx and her crew for making my models look so beautiful, to all of the models themselves and Megan York at Tracque Model Mgmt for helping me put on a truly beautiful show, 944 Magazine for coming out and covering the event, and last but certainly not least, the Struggle crew for allowing me to collaborate with them and join Recession for the night! Oh - And a HUGE thank you to everyone who simply came, and watched the show. I know there are often 10 different things going on at once in our amazing city, and I really appreciate anyone who made the effort to fit me into your schedule. There's no point to any of this if I don't have people who are interested in what I'm doing. :)
Here are a few photos!

The kelly lynne 2011 collection is inspired by dreams. It takes elements from movies such as Black Swan, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Virgin Suicides and The Science of Sleep and puts them together into a dreamy, youthful, imaginative collection. I design for a specific person. She is an ageless dreamer.
As always, I tried to re-use fabrics that comes from untraditional places, and create a lot of my color from hand dying with natural materials such as fruit and tea. This year my collection will feature materials such as vintage slips, pillowcases, recycled leather, and silk drapery. It is a balanced mix of costume, evening wear, and contemporary looks. The entire collection will be presented in a full runway show on May 21, 2011 at 9:00 p.m. at Oslo, Detroit. Come see it!!!
