I completely missed September’s blog post. Opps.
I have been neglecting this blog again, so I am going to use this post to catch you up on what I’ve been doing!
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.

It’s about time I’ve updated everyone formally via the blog.
SacAnime J-Fashion Runway has been over for a bit now and I can honestly say that the experience of running, presenting and modeling during the show was incredibly rewarding. I want to independently run fashion shows for PGF and this was a good first run on event coordinating. As stated here, I won’t be returning to do the fashion shows at SacAnime as a coordinator, but I would love to come back as a competing designer– I’d like to think I have a shot, but I really don’t want (or like) to get cocky.
Here are some stills of what I presented at SacAnime Summer 2014’s J-Fashion Runway– photographer Ivan Aburto was a pleasure to work with and if he didn’t reside in SoCal I would work with him more often. His Flickr can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/iaburto/sets/72157646864354318/
My models Katherine, Laura and Angelina did well on the runway and I couldn’t have been happier! Video of the runway show can be found here.
Aside from the fashion show, I updated the shop– feel free to take a look (https://pixiegiftfashions.storenvy.com/)! I’ve decided to just stick with things I make rather than being a buyer and designer– my heart isn’t with buying. I highly respect buyers, but I know that it’s just not for me.
Meanwhile, I am phoneless for the time being– my iPhone is how I mostly access the internet, e-mail, take photos for the shop and Instagram, etc. so I will be trying to update to the best of my ability until this all gets fixed. Hopefully correcting this issue won’t be a huge dent in my savings– besides moving out, getting a car and other adult needs/wants that one saves up for I’m hoping to get my hands on a nice DSLR camera so I can start doing my own photo shoots. With updates, it may be a while, but I have my laptop and (hopefully) free time in-between classes (my last semester has started at Sacramento State!) to manually post updates to keep the brand’s internet presence active.
Thank you all again for sticking with me so far– I hope to keep you all entertained and interested in PGF as I continue my journey of building this brand to it’s fullest potential!
