2012 Show

I am still working on my 2012 Collection. My plan is to have it completed by the end of March, but I'm still searching for the perfect venue for this show. I would like to feature other artists and designers in this show - I pretty much know who I want to ask, but I need a venue to get things rolling. If anyone has any leads on a place that would pretty much offer up it's space for me, that would be amazing. A place that has a bar would be perfect because they would benefit from the liquor sales and it would be a win-win all around.

This year I am working harder on making each piece very uniquely crafted, to stand on it's own as a work of art. It's more about showing the extent of what I can do, rather than mass marketing or super wearable. I have a plan and a direction, and I feel what I aim to do really separates me from the traditional ready to wear designer. My dream would be to have my work showcased in a gallery, before sold in a big department store.
