We have been asked to do several shows in Paris for the 2020 SS season of Paris Fashion Week which will happen in September of 2019. I have assembled a dynamic team consisting of Jewelry designer Shana Kroiz, Textile designer Kirk Shindle of Slant Evolution Apparel, and myself as the clothing designer. We also plan to take a few college age students that are looking to break into the fashion industry in order to give them a rare opportunity of being immersed into the Paris fashion scene during one of the most important fashion weeks of all.  Creating a collection is a huge undertaking and a challenge that this team is up for, however being independent designers will make the challenge a bit tougher than it would be for a highly funded designer.  Upon figuring out expenses for our showing and a much needed and very important press junket which will put us in front of many of the major global fashion publications such as PAPER MAGAZINE , VOGUE, HARPERS BAZAAR to name a few. This will cost approximately 30,000 to be effective and that is on the very low end. As designers we are putting up the cost for our collection, however we will need assistance with getting some of these costs reduced or funded in order for us to show successfully in Paris in this coming September. * Round Trip Air Fare to Paris, France for 4 days and 6 people. * Lodging for 4 days and 3 nights for 6 people. * Show cost for 18 complete looks.
