CODY SAI is a women's fashion collection based in NYC made and sourced locally. Help continue the collection and put on the first runway show.
My name is Cody Sai Adler-McAllister, the name of my clothing line is CODY SAI. I have a full time job and do everything for CODY SAI during nights and weekends out of a small studio in New York. With the help and funding of friends and family I started CODY SAI a year ago as a casual, yet sophisticated ready-to-wear clothing line for women.
Designing and creating is something I am extremely passionate about and I am driven to succeed. I have been featured, alongside THAKOON, in a documentary by NHK World TV (the BBC of Japan) about promising Asian designers in New York. My collection is now sold at a store in New York City, and CODY SAI has appeared in several articles online. However, the growing attention and status that CODY SAI has gained has translated into higher costs requiring me to seek additional funding. Therefore, I need your help to continue working on, and promoting CODY SAI.
In addition to launching CODY SAI’s Spring 2011 collection, I have the chance to be a part of a runway fashion show during the end of October. The show caters to young Asian designers / Asian inspired designers. It is also a fundraiser-benefit show for the China Institute Young Associates. You can help me continue my collection and enable me to put on a great show for everyone. This will be my third season out, but my first runway show. It's a great and exciting opportunity for me.
The money raised through kickstarter will not only help me be a part of this show, it will be used to purchase fabrics and materials to create the Spring 2011 collection. It will also be used for hiring models and putting together a photo shoot for the website.
All contributions made through this site will go directly to the cost of producing the collection which include:
-Supply costs for creating collection
2. Trim, zippers, buckles, and fasteners
3. Notions (i.e. thread, lining and interfacing)
2. Studio hire
