Well, I have really done it this time. I have gone and signed myself up for another big project. Right now it looks like I will have some late nights this week just to have the garments in a state appropriate for the fitting this Sunday. I am excited about fashion week and it has forced me to complete the Spring 2011 collection, but it is still a lot of work.
Having said that though, I am really pleased with the direction of the spring collection. Actually, I am quite thrilled. The inspiration behind it is “little boys.” I have two little boys, so I know a thing or two about the human variety. The concept, however, goes beyond that. Think A-bomb, ash, demise thrown in for good measure. I know we have had some good times here at the shop conceiving all kinds of madness for the collection that wouldn’t actually fly, but, nonetheless, fun to toss around. Anyway, I must go to make the next dress. I will give more updates and maybe even some previews.
Would love to see all of you there. I will be showing in Friday Oct. 8, if you want to buy tickets. Having said that, there are many great designers presenting, so any night would be a treat. Portland Fashion Week tickets.
