About this project

A bit about me: Hello! Thank you so much for viewing my Kickstarter project! My name is Fabiola Arias, I am 24 years old with my own line of women's evening wear. I started my company 2 years ago while still a student at Parsons The New School for Design in NYC. Now I am selling at Neiman Marcus' Couture Salon! 

Last year, I was invited to show during Japan Fashion Week and I also won two awards this year: The Fashion Group International Rising Star Award for women's wear, and the Gold Coast Fashion Award. This has been so exciting for me! 

Where you come in: Be a part of my journey and help me get to my next step. The Neiman Marcus buyer wants to see my Spring 2012 collection. I have a vision for what I want to design but I currently lack the funds to make this happen. I am seeking $5,000 to make this possible. These funds will go towards the production of the new designs: buying fabric, materials and manufacturing and labor. My manufacturing is all done in NYC where costs are very high and makes it difficult for a young couture fashion company to sustain itself.

Any amount is appreciated. All of the contributions add up, so no amount is too small. I want to get as many people involved as possible...please spread the word :)

Kindest Regards,
Fabiola
