I think I'm 'Turning Japanese'...

A few months ago I decided to take a chance and made a submission to Nightwalk Events for their SS2013 Fashion Show. I know they get a lot of submissions from designers and I wasn't confident that my designs would spark their interest, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got an email through to tell me I had been selected as one of the 16 designers who would showcase a collection on the 30th April this year at The Arches in Glasgow! Actually... that's a bit of an understatement... I was 'over the moon' to be selected!!!

I'd had an idea for a collection I wanted to put together inspired by my love of Japanese style and culture... so I decided to make this my Spring/Summer Collection... and called it 'Turning Japanese'. As with everything I create the pieces will have a vintage feel to them and will feature everything from Cherry Blossoms to Sushi, from Kanzanshi Hair Ornaments to the Japanese Flag. 

To create my collection I'm looking to raise £1000. This money will not only help me to purchase the materials I need to make my 8 piece collection. It will also help my to put together and style 8 complete outfits for my models and go towards publicity for the 'Turning Japanese' collection.

I'm offering some fantastic perks for your contributions  Contributions to my campaign start at just £1. Everyone who gives just £5 or more will be entered into a prize draw to win a one-of-a-kind fascinator from Off With Her Head Millinery. From £10 upwards I have goodie bags up for grabs that will include hair clips, hair flowers, and signed limited edition prints of the complete collection depending on your contribution. I also have 2 pairs of tickets for the event in Glasgow on the 30th April for those who fancy being extremely generous!
