Fall 2013 Fashion Week | New Orleans

Hey y'all! 

I've just returned from NOLAFW and wanted to share all of the details with you. It was SUCH a busy week. We had photo shoots, private viewings, television appearances, model fittings, web series interviews, and YES meetings with those lovely seamstresses I've told you all about. These activities all led up to our runway show on Thursday night at the Saratoga in the CBD of New Orleans. Boy, was our show an absolute success! 

A little background on the Fall 2013 Collection:

Tallulah's F/W '13 collection "Amplified" is inspired by volume: it can be expressed through sound waves and decibels, loud and poignant statements, as well as amplified color and texture. This collection is an exploration of how volume can be expressed to the senses through pattern, color, and textiles. From playful frocks to wide leg trousers, F/W '13 is sure to make you take note and pump up the volume.

Amplified: Fall 2013 was a hit! Our signature piece, The Amplify Cape, conjured gasps from the audience. Our separates wowed while our outerwear stunned. I sold two dresses right off of the models' backs! Folks, this collection is going to go FAST. 

Luckily, if you're a backer, you've solidified your spot as a proud owner of the Fall 2013 Collection. Take a look at the images below for a sneak peek of what's landing on your doorstep in August! These awesome rewards can only be yours if we make our goal! Spread the word y'all! 

So excited to share! 

XOXO, 

Heather Williams

Risks and challenges

Labor and technology are our biggest barriers. We believe in paying competitive wages for our sew-op ladies and are not willing to sacrifice that belief. Our technology costs are also high because of the significant challenge that converting all of our flat patterns to tech packs creates. This step is crucial though for Heather to clearly communicate her designs with the women Tallulah hires for this project.
