I can't believe it's been over a month since I arrived in NYC for the Re/Dress Indie+ event. To be a part of such an amazing event as a designer is something I couldn't have fathomed a year ago. Not only was I asked to come and vend, but I also put on my first fashion show as Domino Dollhouse. The weekend was bittersweet, as while it was super exciting and thrilling for me and my shop, Re/Dress was closing down. It was the catalyst, however, to meeting so many amazing, inspiring people. I want to give special thanks to Deb and her amazing staff for being so kind and welcoming, especially in the face of their unfortunate situation. I wanted to take each and every one of them home with me in my suitcases!!!
I've got so many pictures, so bear with me! People in the pictures: I'm going to try and put links for all of these lovely people and items, but if I can't find one or if you'd like to use a different one, just let me know! As with the last post, click an image to see it larger on my Flickr.
Amazing Ladies Und Moi Shots:
Lesley Kinzel, Me, and Marianne Kirby (the ol' ticker kinda raced when I met these two...I mean...LOVE)
Me and Audrey Lea Curry (of Big Sexy fame...she walked for me in the fashion show, as well!)
Taueret and Me (seriously inspiring and wonderful dame. I want her in my dollhouse someday, guys!!!)
Virgie Tovar and Me (I totally want to do some over accessorizing with her someday)
Alicia and Me (was told she walked like a fierce tiger by Deb and WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED in her DD runway performance)
Deb, the Glamazons, and Me (I worked with these ladies at my old job and it was great to be reunited!)
Me, Erin, and Caroline (Erin was a delightful model for DD and Caroline is SUCH an amazing vintage styler...LOVE these ladies)
Me and Maxey Greene (isnt' she just DREAMY?? Another wonderful model that walked for DD)
Gabi Gregg and Me (she was super sweet...ended up working with her on this post where she rocks some DD!)
The fashion show was such a great success and it was SO wonderful of Deb to procure a team of fashion show experts to help things run smoothly. Big thanks to Nanthale and her crew:
You can catch the runway show on Domino Dollhouse's youtube:
All in all, it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and DEFINTELY so far in my Domino Dollhouse career. It wouldn't have been possible with the inspiring, fierce warrior DEB!
I'm so excited to have her on the west coast and can't wait to do some fatty collabs out her. Welcome to CA, Deb!
