Update- What's Happening in my World

Hello All,

Life for me has been crazy as usual, and everyone who knows me knows how busy my schedule can get. Lots of things have been going on these past couple of weeks, and before I forget what they were, here's a little bit about them:

Feb. 27th: I was at Camax Campus Market Expo promoting my new print for Nuo. Models wore my clothes and showed off the laptop cases available in the line.
While I was there, Study Breaks, which is a college magazine, asked me to help sponsor and promote their Girls Night Out Contest. Submit a 30 sec. video on why you should win, and you'll be entered in a chance to win one of my Nuo bags bag full of new clothes, dinner, limo service, vip treatment at the clubs, and your own paparrazi for the night. Details on their website here.

Mar. 1st: I attended the Passion for Fashion Luncheon at the Hotel Zaza and got to dine with Mark Badgley and James Mischka of Badgley & Mischka. They were amazingly sweet and down to earth.

Mar. 2nd: I was on Fox News talking about Project Fashionista at the Children's Museum. Project Fashionista is a great way to channel your inner fashion designer to design clothes out of everyday materials. The event is on Wed. Mar. 16th from 11am-1pm, and I will be there to judge the outfits! There will be a lot of other fun activities going on, so don't miss it! Details here. Not only for the kids, adults can play, too (we all have an inner child anyway).

Mar. 7th: I was on a panel for Fashion Group International Houston's career day and student fashion show along with David Peck, Marina Saba, and guest speakers Janet Gurwitch and Carmen Marc Valvo. It was an honor to be around such accomplished people and to encourage student designers.
Later that day, I also met up with Jen from TLC's the Little Couple to make her another outfit. We went shopping at High Fashion Fabrics and she picked out the fabric she wanted. I normally don't do custom work, but she is so sweet that I could not say no.

Mar. 9th: I was lucky enough to be invited to the preview of Cirque du Soleil's new show OVO. Me and my mom got the VIP treatment, free drinks and tapas, great seats, and got to see an AMAZING show. It makes you realize how amazing humans can be. We have no limits.

Mar. 12th
: I hosted Macy's "Find Your Magic" Fashion Show at Memorial City Mall. The audience was great especially Angel. I want to give a little shout out to her mom and grandmother. Ya'll made my day!

Here's an upcoming event in case you're in Austin: SXSW has a new fashion showcase called Style X from Mar. 18-19 at the Austin Convention Center. I will be there for the fashion shows and speak on a panel. More details here.

So that's it guys, that's what I did over the past weeks. Crazy huh? Hopefully I don't run out of energy because there's always more coming up.

Wow, you've been busy! Are you going to be showing any collections at the Audi fashion show in the fall this year, like you did last year?
