Sisters on the Runway

In October I was part of the Sisters on the Runway fashion show at Parsons in October.  Sisters on the Runway is an organization started by 3 students to raise awareness and money for women affected by domestic violence.
The show was held at the Fashion building at Parsons the New School for Design- on the same runway that Project Runway is filmed on!
I worked together with my friend Jack to create a mini collection inspired by the women at Safe Horizon, a center for domestic violence survivors.  We called it Rebirth and sought inspiration in phoenixes and the sunrise.
Here is the collection description blurb from the program:
This ready to wear collection is about starting fresh.  The white symbolizes a new canvas and beginning again again.  We took inspiration from Safe Horizon and the mythical phoenix.  We worked together to make a collection that represents the rebirth of life and strength in women.  This collection celebrates a renewal of spirit.
Original concept sketches:

Our fabulous models were Jennifer, Britt, Becca, and Jules. They were amazing!
 Okayyyy picture storm time:

i love you all

I'm going to post some projects and things over the weekend. Also, I now have a sweet internship with Daryl K!  I worked today so now it is time to go collapse. In the meantime, watch this video. Guaranteed to put a smile on ya face.

Have you watched any Disney movies lately? I love them forever, but a lot of them are actually based on really messed up stories!
