About this project
Woven Vessel has a simple mission: Give the under-exposed designers of America the spotlight that they rightfully deserve. This country is ripe with talented people who just need an opportunity and a platform to showcase their work. Woven Vessel aims to be that springboard that gives these deserving people their chance at national and international exposure.
Our goal with this Kickstarter project is to print our first ever Woven Vessel Magazine. We have amazing new designers, photographers, models, stylists and artists on board, and we need your help to go from magazine concept to reality.
The why behind Woven Vessel is pretty simple. We're a group of friends who are all in the fashion industry. We see firsthand how hard it is to make it in this industry and we know that trying to make it without anyone rooting in your corner is nearly impossible. Based in Hollywood/Los Angeles, we have a special sensitivity for the up and coming-ers of this country.
Woven Vessel is open to all artist regardless of your medium. We are firstly a fashion magazine, so designers are very welcome, but we understand that designers need to be inspired by painters, musicians, dancers, and every other art form and we want--NEED--you to be part of the Woven Vessel network.
We plan to launch www.wovenvessel.com in early September and follow up with a print magazine to be released in early 2013. The resources for photography, models, styling, travel, printing, and shipping can only be made possible through the support of our family, friends, and others who partner with us to successfully bring Woven Vessel to its full potential.
Risks and challenges
Print is a risky business, but we believe that the need to provide deserving designers with a platform to showcase their work makes the risk worth the potential reward.
The biggest challenge that we currently face is funding the actual print magazine, which we hope to resolve with our Kickstarter project. We believe that there enough people out that are rooting for the struggling designer, or even the not so struggling designer who nevertheless has a fantastic product but no opportunity to present it to an audience. Woven Vessel is looking for those backers to partner with us to get our first print issue launched!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
