ReadysetDC Fashion District F/W 2011 Designer Meet & Greet

Last Friday I had the pleasure of attending ReadySetDC's Fashion District F/W 2011 Designer Meet and Greet with my boss Kas. The event was held at the Dunes a really nice gallery in DC. The event was filled with a great crowd, and I got a bit of networking done and introduced Kas to some of my people. All in all it was a good time, we arrived an hour before the event was over and made the best of it. It's always great running into people in the Industry that you know and chatting it up for a bit.

Check out some of the photo's I snagged


Beautiful photography graced the walls of the Gallery

"Every designer's dream begins somewhere"


This evening I had the pleasure of viewing "Dressed" a documentary on Nary Manivong a once homeless designer and his amazing journey. This documentary was so inspiring to me. To hear where this young man came from and where he is now, and how he NEVER gave up is just what I needed to keep me moving. I had never heard of this designer until tonight, and I was truly moved by his story. Through all his trials, and with circumstances not looking too promising for him he made it through. In the documentary he carried a small note with him that read "Nary, you can do it. Believe" Always a great reminder to carry around with you.

This industry especially is a difficult to master. There are so many great up and coming designers all over the world, but of course the more recognized designers are the ones that get the most attention. You know the Gucci's, Valentino's, and D&G's of the world.. It takes years and years to gain that kind of success. 2,000 brands launch each year, and a lot of them go bankrupt within the first year after their first collection. The most important thing to remember is to "Just do good work" No money comes from a fashion show, and some of the most amazing shows were produced with little money. Produce good work, and eventually someone will notice" I'm taking mental notes so when it comes time for me to put something out there I will have all the knowledge I need. You can learn a lot from those that came before you. No need in trying to reinvent the wheel here.

I was able to get some pretty good photos from the event.. check them out


Q&A with designer Nary and director David Swajeski
