Lovecranberry.com!

Our domain name is up woohoo!
The website is still in talks and works so for now... so from now anytime you want to visit our blog go to>>lovecranberry.com! Loove it!

SCHOOL came back with a bang, histology and physiology exams..sigh*..hence my absence!....So where did we stop?...okay as you have been briefed... it was a rush showing - we had in total about 6 new dresses from our new collection( called "SUGARCANE"...we named it after not the candy cane but SUGAR frigging sweet sweet cane itself...lol it was a unanimous decision!) and also some of our old stuff as well..everything went really smoothly, it was very professional and we made a lot of great contacts, all in all i am really pleased we did this show.

On the topic of preparing the collection...

Anyways what can i say, sewing with a body was awesome! Ozzy our lovely Fashion school resident had us learning draping techniques and patternmaking which was extremely helpful. We decided to finish what we could that week and get together next week to finish the entire collection..it was AN experience but what kept us going was the motto we adopted for this collection which was/is and i very proudly quote, "WHAT WOULD BEYONCE DO..(hand on the chin and finish with a HMM"....BECAAAAAUSE You know my girl gives 150% EVERYTIME!! UNFAILINGLY! THANK YOU!! lol....AS tiring as it was.. it also was intensely satisfying...

On the topic of Fabric shopping..

Fabric shopping was really fun, we went with the jewel tones and heavy brocades...sexxxy...we were going for cocktail fun and flirty..LONGER LENGTHS lol...and the next batch of clothes we make will include single pieces like tops and bottoms, TWILL BE A FUN EXPERIMENT lol...

I personally love it all and we had a GREAT GREAT feedback from the show so we feel really good!! and it is feeling REALLY REAL! so yay!! -
We have another show on the 16th in NYC, its also a really good opportunity for publicity and contacts and i honestly am very excited and better still its for CHARITY!
All the fashion designers slated to appear are verrrrry talented and i have been loving Miss Bruno (we didnt get to meet her at the Bkshow but hey maybe its fate!)and kathy Misick's work...i also loooove the simmon sisters and their Pastry shoe line...so i am like YAY!!!
I sincerely hope everything works out great :)
