Who we are:We are the senior students at the New York Fashion Academy located in Ballard Washington. Part of our graduation project is that the students have to put on a Fashion Show from beginning to end of our own original designs. From fundraising to after show clean up, we have to figure out how to make it work.

About the show:The fashion show is scheduled to debut in April 2013. We currently have 14 designers that are eligible to participate in the show. The show typically costs about $10,000, and the students have to come up with that money by fundraising and by ticket sales.

What will the money be used for:The money that we receive if we reach our goal will be used to secure the following:

  • Professional lighting services.
  • Piping and Draping the school (making it look good)
  • Insurance for the show.
  • Professional DJ services.
  • Photographers.
  • Cleaning before and after the show.
  • Runway construction.
  • Chair and equipment rentals
  • Liquor licenses.
  • So much more!
Who are the designers:
  • Melody Hirsch
  • Cori Carlson
  • Joe Madsen
  • Rachel Farquharson
  • Jackie Bugarin 
  • Tom Ordonio 
  • Jennifer Tominaga 
  • Janis Sanders
  • Cory Boberg
  • Melanie Silwick
  • Marcella Kelly
  • Marisa Rockett
  • Erin Weathers
  • Andrea Rioja

We would like to thank everyone who has helped us get this far and to all the new people that we will get to meet along the way on our Kickstarter journey. Big thanks goes to Andy Dopieralski, for helping us create our video, our School's Director Terry Horlamus for providing us with the teaching and tools to achieve our dreams, all of our friends and family, and finally to everyone who can donate, share, or like our project!

Risks and challenges

The main challenge of the project so far, is making sure that we have the funds to start securing services for the show. Without the funds, there is no show! Beyond that, a major challenge for each of the designers is the creation and execution of their line. This process includes so much time and work. Hours will be spent on perfecting illustrations, pattern work, fabric selection, fittings, getting models, hair and makeup, and all the finishing touches. Each of the designers has to commit their lives fully to make the fashion show match everything we have envisioned.
