Hello faithful readers, It's been a long time since I've posted, and I'm sorry about that. I've been very busy developing the patterns for the first season of Cabiria, and having them proofed and tweaked. It's so important to me that the fit is true across all the styles, and that we come to market with the best possible pieces.
As I mentioned in my last post in February (oh my goodness!), Michael Bevins at 4 Seasons Fashion is going to be setting up my factory streamlining, so I can start shopping around samples. Once I have the samples in hand, I will be re-pitching to Kickstarter and IndieGoGo in order to raise money for production, complete with benefits for donors.
I really and truly appreciate the support and encouragement of everyone who's been following me and helping me along the way. If I had my druthers, you'd all be wearing Cabiria this very moment, and comparing how awesome you look in the clothes to the photos in the magazines of other hot people wearing Cabiria. As it goes, though, I think when Cabiria launches fully in stores, you'll be really happy with what's being brought to market, and it will only be helped by all the wonderful plus size press that's been coming on lately. For instance, TLC's "Big Sexy" and "Big Brooklyn Style", and the Full Figured Fashion Week events, which are all positive steps forward.
In the meantime, I give you Joy Nash's brilliant, body positive, totally hilarious and biting "Fat Rant 3: Staircase Wit", borrowed from it's feed on YouTube:
Have a fantastic week, and I really can't wait to show you what's next!
