Ladies and Gentleman of all ages! The time has come for the big reveal! The results are in! I am pleased to report that intimate apparel managed to get 15 garments into the show this year! A HUGE congratulations is in order for Francielle, who took home the grand prize of $2,000 for the Cotton Award!
As for me, I managed to get BOTH ensembles into the show! Not going to lie, I totally jumped up and down when I found out! After three months of grueling hours of hand sewing, the work paid off and I will get to see my creations on real models, wearing real heels, on a real runway to real music, with real photographers from the press taking their pictures!!!! EEEK!!!!
What’s next? PACKING! I leave in 4 hours for the airport! I am flying to Miami where my family and I will be spending the next week aboard a cruise ship sailing through the eastern caribbean! All I can say is I NEED this vacation! One of the small side effects of attending FIT is that you don’t actually have a spring break. The last 3 years, spring break has merely been a chance to catch up on other work! Sophomore year we were finishing our garments for the AAS exhibit, and last year I was sewing garments for the Lululemon Athletica Urban Yogini Competition! This year I am being whisked away on an early graduation present! So I’m signing off for the next week! Here’s to hoping I come back with a tan! CHEERS!
