Styleline Magazine feature + Etsy shop up and running

Check out pages 34-35 and 105-106 of this month's Styleline Magazine!!!

I am the featured designer for June. :) I'm so happy with how the article and photos turned out. Thanks so much Hoda Salameh and Daniel Lippitt, and also thanks to the editor Karen Buscemi. In addition to the article on pages 34-35, they also covered my fashion show on March 20th. So great. I <3 you Styleline!!!

I have also launched my Etsy shop. I will be putting up last year's marked down items all week, and the Fall 2010 Collection should be up by the end of next week.

May updates, still ticking?

I have had so much going on lately, I feel like the past few months have been a massive blur!

1. I was chosen to be one of 6 featured "top michigan designers" for the Bravo! Bravo! benefit for the Detroit Opera House. The event is on June 4th, and I designed a new dress which will be auctioned off that night. Below are some promotional photos taken by the lovely and talented Iryna Zhygalkina.

cool photos, but the one in the green chair makes me think the caption should read
"Dr. Kelly Tinsley, Alternative Psychologist, PHD." ;)

There is also apparently going to be a commercial for this event featuring myself and the other 5 designers, who are Wound Menswear, William Malcolm, Joe Faris, and Femilia Couture. We took some footage for it last week and I'm excited to see how it turned out.

Speaking of videos, I'm also going to be on television AND the internet! I'm going up to Warren City TV studios next Thursday to be a guest on "The Spotlight", which will feature an interview with me and a small fashion show featuring 6 of my looks from the Fall Collection. Woo! It will run on air for 2 weeks and then be up eternally on facebook and youtube.

I finished one of the five bridesmaids dresses I need to have finished by the 3rd of October. It was way more work than I thought it would be, mostly because I'm an insane perfectionist when it comes to my work - I just hope for my sanity the other 4 go faster and smoother.

Just two more weeks until the June issue of Styleline Magazine comes out - I'm the featured designer, and can't wait to see how the article turned out. Stop by your local Barnes and Noble or Borders Books to check it out.
