We did it! Jungle Flora was successfully funded at 213% of goal. Thank you to each and every one of you. I am extremely grateful, and flattered by the enthusiam. As a few unanticipated costs have already come up, the extra funds will be very helpful in giving me the flexibility I need to experiment a bit and take some risks. Plus, now I will be able to hire a model which will facilitate my ability to take a critical eye to the collection and make improvements.
Now, let the real work begin! Watch out for a progress report on Look #2 this week. Here is a clue to which look is coming up next; the fabrics are pictured below.
