Kris Keys  MEMPHIS, TN
My name is Kristen Keys and I'm a professional fashion illustrator. My purpose of this page is to seek tuition assistance from my friends, family, and supportors for a Honors Degree program at London College of Fashion in London, England.
I was recently accepted into a Honors Program at London College of Fashion specializing in Fashion Design and Technology Development starting September 2013. This is an intense course with research, design development, garment construction and tailoring.
For the past 2 years,I have focused on my career in fashion illustration. This has led me to illustrate during Fashion Weeks and events throughout the United States and Europe. My work has also been featured on Essence.com, WGSN.com(the world's largest trend forecasting company), and Memphis' RSVP magazine to name a few. Now, I am continuing to work towards my career goals, education and skills in fashion design. The course which I was accepted is very competitive and ranked one of the top Fashion Universities in the world.I am extremely excited about continuing my education in London and exploring new avenues for my creativity through clothing design.
Any donation towards this endeavor would be greatly appreciated.
There are also incentives at various reward levels for assisting me in the form of fashion illustrations. This is listed in detail in the reward level section of this page. Please take a moment to view my website www.bykriskeys.com which contains additional information about my accomplishments and my work.

If you have ideas of any corporate or small businesses that could donate to this project, please let me know.
I will update this site weekly with illustration work and videos about the progress/details of this endeavor.Thank you!


I'm partnering with Art Village Gallery August 16 to host a fundraiser event! Tickets are $12 in advance in $15 the day of the event.Tickets to this event can be purchased at www.bykriskeys.eventbrite.com



Best,

I've reached my goal and I made it back to London yesterday! Thank you for the support through this journey. I wish I could list everyone, but that's just impossible. I started this GoFundMe campaign with no exact "blueprint" of fulfilling this goal , but I followed God until I reached the finish line. I'm also still shipping incentives for your donations, so if you haven't received your illustrations for donating, it's on the way!! Anything is possible. Anything! Shout out to Memphis! (Yes, the whole city) xoxo
