SPRING 2015 RTW COLLECTION | NAVY + GREEN + GREY









I produced two Spring 2015 Collections, one bridal and one ready-to-wear. I will take the next few weeks to blog about each piece that went down the runway. For my ready-to-wear (RTW) collection I chose grey and gold as my main colors with accents of navy, cobalt, orange, and green. I also played around with some printed gold foil logo shirts like the ones above. I love making pieces that I can wear everyday which is why it was so fun for me to do both bridal at RTW this last spring. Of course there are still sequins and embellishments even in my more casual pieces.

SPRING PROVO FASHION WEEK 2015 | BEHIND THE SCENES


I co-produced and designed two collections for the third semi-annual Provo Fashion Week which took place in February. This show was crazy, for all the right reasons!! We had just put on our Fall PFW in October, and then it was Thanksgiving, graduating from business school, and Christmas which means I didn't really start getting to work until mid-January - which gave me about 1.5 months to make two complete collections (27 outfits). I know, I'm crazy! I did have a fabric trip to NYC in the fall and most everything was designed by the time January rolled around.. but still. Luckily I have an amazing seamstress (who also happens to be my biggest fan and mother who works overtime for free!) who helped sew the collections so I could have everything finished on time. 

This show was so fun because not only did I get to design an entire wedding collection, but I also designed a ready-to-wear collection. Usually my collections have to mix the two so that I can have a variety of designs, but this time I got to do all of it! Thanks also to my awesome and supportive husband who let me spend way too much money on fabric and way too many hours sleeping in my sewing room rather than at our apartment.

We had a few TV news segments that were so much fun!

I'm so grateful for the amazing fashion community that Utah has formed - it is incredible to see so much talent and support. The designers, models, bloggers, photographers, hair and makeup artists, stylists, party planners, and audience all made PFW possible. I will forever remember the amazing times I had designing for and co-producing Provo Fashion Week. The experience and growth I received as a designer through PFW is unlike anything else in the world.

Our team surprised Cherisa (our HMUA coordinator) and me with an adorable gold birthday cake because we both had birthdays during the chaos of the shows and didn't get to celebrate much.



It was so fun having my wedding dress walk the runway!
