This year I will be showing my new fashion collection at Nolcha New York Fashion week 2008. I recently received the good news as a result of submitting my fashion designs in a design competition. Of the 200 entries in the competition, I was one of the fortunate 13 fashion designers selected. In addition Fashion Capital and ASOS are the sponsors of the Fashion week competition.
Nolcha is a leading event for independent fashion designers during New York Fashion Week. To showcase and have the support of brands like ASOS and fashion Capital is special.
Recognising passion and talent is humbling because I care about creating quality and beauty. The selected designers were given the opportunity to attend a seminar as part of shows preparation. Hosted by top fashion leaders and Topshop head buyers, the ‘fashion leaders seminar’ was all about developing our collections and industry standards. After that, it’s all about completing our collections and heading to the big Apple.
I’ve taken my notes so… see you in New York!
