So I'm getting ready for my first public show
, more like a party, more like a heart attack, stress out fest, at the beautiful and very cool gallery Taylor De Cordoba
. And I'm thinking to myself, what does the show need? Well, my bags definitely err on the side of classic and unadorned. I'm a true believer in less is more, however I don't think the mass public feels that way. And the objective is to actually sell bags as we're giving proceeds to a really great organization called PS ARTS
. Perhaps the show could use a bit of color - so I'm thinking of painting on some of my bags - yes, painting, since they've already been made I cannot have them silk screened. Anyways, last night looking for ideas I played on photoshop. Here's my classic bag - the Cartable - one of my earliest designs for a work bag (which sold like crazy after daily candy did a piece on it) avec un petit peu de pop.
Now I'm off to do a little excruciating in person self promoting on the set of a TV show - behind the scenes of course. My friend works on the new show (with 2 really great actresses who I actually respect and think are super funny,) so she invited me there to present my line to the stylist and also to "gift" bags to the actresses. I know, it's completely dubious and potentially ridiculous, but since I actually like these girls, I'll give it a try. I saw one of the Rodarte girls last month speaking on how they never wanted to give their wares to celebs because that was just so not what they were about. I can't think of it being further from what I am about either, but I also hear that these celebs influence sales as pathetic and un cool as that sounds. Okay, enough. I'm off.
