wow I've been busy! so busy I haven't really had a chance to blog. but anyways this blog is about PARKSHOW! (and related media)

so prior to parkshow I managed to get some press!
here is the links to the articles about me in CALGARYJOURNAL.CA and METRO CALGARY
Parkshow was incredible! the venue looked great and the team behind park really stepped it up this year. This year not only did I showcase as a designer but I also showed an installation piece (my grad piece)

This being the first year that I could actually watch the show I was very impressed with the execution. I loved my models :) and we all know how picky I am with models I think they did great (thanks Sophia Models) This year I only showed 11 pieces and it sure seemed to fly by! haha.

So this collection was a little more playful as I started out wanting bright colors. Through the business class I was taking at MRU (which had a pitch competition that I won!!) I decided that I was going to make collections based on things that I wanted to without trying to fit into the box of "seasons" I will no longer call collections "fall 2012" etc. but rather just the name of the collection. That being said, This collection was based on the Madagascar Chameleon (which my dresses may have fit into winter there lol). This time around I made large prints of multicolored chameleons intermingled so that the colors and patterns were made to look like the background.

Already there was been quite a buzz! check out these links for words, pictures and more pictures!
