Messages going to the abyss
I have just discovered that my mail server was sending a ton of my messages from other sources (from kickstarter, my blog, facebook, you name it) to the abyss. I sincerely apologize to anyone who sent me a message and has been waiting to hear from me. I will be answering all correspondences shortly. This was a filter problem in my inbox, and I have corrected it now.
A small update:
My senior collection production class got canceled for this current quarter due to low registration. I asked about this, and apparently 2 students just didn't cut it to hold the class. It is scheduled to happen during the summer quarter (which begins in July). The only upside to this is that the # of looks required in increased so Avant Gore will now feature 5 looks, instead of 4.
All of the printed materials have been delayed due to this, but I am hoping to have it all sorted and mailed out by the end of May. If anyone's address' change, please send me a message directly about it.
I will be sending out a measurement form within a few days to those backers who have pledge for a corset. That way I can finish those before the actual production of the line begins in July.
If there are any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks everyone!
