It's Time For 2016 ONE OF A KIND
I think I'm speaking for a lot of people when I say that new years can be really intimidating. When I look back on 2015 and reflect on everything I accomplished it's overwhelming. I have come so far with my brand and grown tremendously as a person. Traveling the first half of the year, doing another 5 trade shows, learning new skills under amazing instructors, competing and winning Phoenix Fashion Week's Emerging Designer of the Year, moving from Chicago to Denver to be closer to nature, working with amazing stores and people, 7+ road trips, I can go on... Exhausting but it's always non stop as an entrepreneur, especially an artist/entrepreneur.
A lot of ideas are brewing in my head that will come to life as the year goes on. Some are being put into motion sooner than others. One specifically is an opportunity I am very excited about. Being Emerging Designer of the Year with Phoenix Fashion Week, I get to debut my capsule collection of ARAE shibori garments LIVE on television with Evine! http://www.evine.com Such a dream come true. Not only because the exposure is like nothing I have ever had before, but because I make everything that I sell. With Evine, I'm in a great position where all I have to do is focus on designing, which is nice for a change.. I put a lot of work into this collection with them and it's so exciting to see my designs come to life through their skilled manufacturing team. All of the garments are going to have my original shibori tie dye pattern on them, and are inspired by the collection available in the shop.. I will be releasing the date of my tv segment very soon and cannot wait to share this moment with all of my supporters, friends, and family. Here's to 2016!
