On October 23rd, Cabiria launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $8,000 towards funding production of the Spring Summer 2013 Collection, and we reached that in just over a week.
Since then, we've become the MOST SUCCESSFUL PLUS SIZE CAMPAIGN EVER on Kickstarter. That is in terms of percentage raised over the initial goal and amount of dollars raised. This is stupendous!
Now, more than ever, I need your help. Any amount you give, from $1 on up, will bounce our analytics higher on Kickstarter. More interest in the campaign means more outside interest from outside our friend circles. More interest creates Staff Picks and Popular placement on the site, introducing the campaign to more people. More interest means more donations and more possibilities for getting more clothing into more hands.
We've gotten great mentions in Plus Fashion Blogs, we were interviewed for a radio podcast broadcasting from New Zealand, and interest from wholesalers from all over North America (I'm including Canada here) from the publicity about this campaign. My alma mater, Pratt, placed the campaign in their Curated Page. It's all great news, but we still have 13 days to go.
If you have not already, please contribute.
If you're involved in Social Justice, Equality, Costume, Fashion, Design, Plus Size, Straight Size, Feminism, Entrepreneurship, Startups, Bootstrappers, Classic Movie Buffs, Europhiles, or just delight in seeing things go viral, you have an audience for Cabiria. Please spread the word and really get this campaign out there, across platforms!
All the best,

2. a wonderful and overdue article on Plus Bloggers and Stylemakers from today's New York Times, and
3. a fascinating article written for Ms. Magazine titled "If the Clothes Fit: A Feminist Takes On Fashion?", which incorporates the social justice part of Cabiria's message.
