Illustrated Fashion & Lifestyle Blog with Cozy Reverie

$1,000

16

UPDATE! 4/14/2015 New reward if we hit the $1000 mark! All backers will collaborate with Cozy Reverie to create a fabric design for the Winter 2015 line. Exciting, right? But we have to reach the $1000 mark for this to happen.

I have always loved colorful and creative fashion, especially when it tells a story. For a couple of years now, I have designed fabric, apparel, and gifts with my illustrations. With these wonderful manufacturers, the shops have done okay, but I hope to expand its reach to more people. Good photography is important when displaying such items. My hope is that I find more people out there that love to live colorfully.

How do I plan on doing so?

Since most of my patterns and illustrations are inspired by art, I will be adding illustrations to my outfit posts. Once a week, there will be a blog post to introduce readers to my fabric and apparel design, in the hopes to sell my work to more people around the world. I love creative marketing and would love to continue to do so in my style blog.

How will the money be used? Great question!

Materials Needed: Photography Background and Lighting Equipment

As you can see, I love illustrating over real photos. However, to best showcase my products, white and black backgrounds are ideal. For this, I would need a photography kit, including backgrounds and lighting equipment. I believe this would be a great way to highlight my illustrations while being memorable to guests at my site.

What about the extra money raised after the goal is met?

If I am lucky enough to have wonderful followers donate more than my goal, here are the plans: 

Yards of Custom Illustrated Fabric: At this time, I have schedule one blog post per month featuring my fabric. Any extra money raised will go to ordering more of my fabric. This means more designs and more blog posts, featuring how my fabrics can be used. Fingers crossed that we raise enough to have one post per week!

Clothing Patterns: Pattern for shirts, shorts, skirts, and more to showcase my illustrated fabrics.

Props & Accessories: My illustrations are also printed on products like tote bags, mugs, pillows, and more. Extra money raised will be used to produce these items as props for future blog posts.

Risks and challenges

A possible challenge would be to have a blog post ready every week. I usually try to get 3 to 4 photo sessions completed in one afternoon, just to avoid missing a publish date.

Risks include any shipping and handling issues for the rewards. However, I plan on having tracking information ready for each package that will be sent out. I want you to receive your goods!
