F/W 2017 Collection
After almost a year of being out of school, and so many unanswered application attempts, I started losing the faith that I had spent the last four years of my life chasing my dream of being a fashion designer for nothing in return. However, as anyone who knows me at all, knows that I do not give up. I picked myself back up and went all-in for a long shot. I applied to enter a collection into Omaha Fashion Week as many talented Alumni from Iowa State has had a lot of success there in the past.
Little did I expect, I got an interview and started sketching and preparing like a mad woman because I only had six days......EEEK!!!...... before I had one of the biggest opportunities of my life. As it turns out, all of my hard work paid off and I got accepted to debut a collection in their February 2017 show! So here I am, ready to put in the hardest work I have ever put into anything so far, and I can't wait to share it with you all!
You can follow along with my design processes here, as I'll be posting my progress as I prepare for the show. I would love to hear people's feedback as I start bringing my collection together piece by piece. Just leave your comments below!
I can't wait to share this experience with all of you and thank you for all of the support from everyone!
