My first fashion show

Thursday, June 21, 2012


What I am wearing (same outfit here): 
Dress - H&M velvet dress (similar here)
Belt - H&M (similar here)
Skirt - DIY (similar here)
Wedges - Aldo (similar here)
Ring - Tiffany & Co (purchase here)

Firstly, I would like to thank Bree Walker (Katherine Bree Walker Photography), Jessica Avilez (Avilez Photography), Edward Velasquez (Edward Velasquez Photography), and Tanner Maginnis (Tanner James Photography). If it wasn't for the amazing team of photographers, none of the fashion designers would be able to capture the hard work that they've produced to create the pieces that went down the runway.

There were about 26 fashion design majors, 15 or so of which were just continuing students and the remaining students were graduating fashion design majors. I was very impressed by every garment that went down the runway - especially the ones that placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for the graduating students. I was at a loss of words when I found out that I won 1st for the continuing fashion design majors. I really couldn't have done it without the help and motivation that I get from all of you (yes you)! Thank you for being such amazing and inspirational friends of mine. I can't wait to see what future designs I'll make inspired by your inspiring and motivational words!

P.S. For those who were wondering, I did a packing post here. I am still in San Francisco so I'll quickly do a recap of the places that I've visited, the people that I've met, and the things that I've bought soon. Have a fabulous week, friends!
