March 2018: Learning Lessons

In February’s post, I mentioned that I’m back in school. I am still working full time and designing on top of that. And darn it, I am really starting to feel the weight of everything. But to say this juggling act is rewarding would be a grave understatement. I am incredibly fortunate to be pushed as a person, an adult, an artist, and a business woman and with all the stress that has entered my life, I have to remember these are just lessons I will learn from. The lessons may not be easy or straightforward at first, but they’re there to make me a better person in the end of everything. Still, if my Museum of Ice Cream trip from February taught me anything, it’s that you still need to make to to be a kid.

So my husband and I took a trip to The Color Factory in San Francisco! Although it didn’t have as many treats as The Museum of Ice Cream, the art installation was extremely interactive! There were even cameras in some of the colorful rooms– that means I didn’t have to rely on my camera for photos of that day! The photos are great to post to Instagram, and to the right is a photo I had to edit in Photoshop Elements so it would work with the blog. It was whimsical and just what I needed to reignite what I needed for what is coming up for me in April. Early April will be Silicon Valley Comic Con’s Geek Fashion Show, where I will be showing a new collection! Then right after that will be the opening of The Merchant of Venice (I am getting units for my degree by being a part of this production!).

After those two events, who knows? Maybe I’ll be a vendor for a con? Maybe I will do another fashion show? Stay tuned– hopefully I find out soon :]

Working on future projects…

Sup, readers!

I have been working on a new collection, as I promised. I’m hoping to show it off in the Summer. I also recently had the chance to sort through all my fabric and am really planning on making some great stuff for the shop (it really needs to be updated).

One thing I really want to work on is organizing my fashion show kits– I need a hefty suitcase to carry things such as a steamer, my camera/recording equipment, etc. I’ve been really tempted to get a Fravel— not only is it cute, but it matches a lot of my designs! You can pre-order these cute travel suitcases here.

New Year, New Opportunities

Hello, everyone!

I started off 2017 with a new experience as the designer for PGF– I had the opportunity to do color commentary for a fashion show! Geek Fashion Show invited me to SacAnime Winter 2017 to work alongside Sean LongΒ and the DJ DaRealWordSound. I documented this experience via SnapChat (pixiegiftfshns) and Instagram (pixiegiftfashions). You can see the highlights below the cut!

Big thanks to Geek Fashion Show and SacAnime for having my collection on their runway! I appreciate how organized the event was, the full house, the talent (hair, makeup, models, DJ, designers, photographers, etc.), the advertisement and exposure, and for making us all feel safe and accepted. I had a ton of fun, met a lot of great individuals, and felt genuinely fulfilled. ❀
