My biggest project this year, so far, has definitely been my involvement in the Her Universe fashion show. I was incredibly fortunate to have been chosen as one of the 27 designers in this year’s show at San Diego Comic Con. Even though I didn’t win, I still consider this a big victory, considering I am entirely self taught when it comes to sewing and fashion design.
I had 2.5 months to create a dress I designed, which featured intense amounts of hand beading, which is something I had never done before. The dress itself, was also a challenge, because it was made up of blocks of different colored fabrics with a lot of angles. This was definitely my most labor intensive garment to date.
Here are some pictures from the show. Despite being in the show, and thus not being able to take pictures, the event had a very large press presence. It was really an honor to take part in such a highly publicized event. I still kind of can’t believe it. Haha.
