Ok, so yes.. going to New York for Fashion Week was part of my news… but there is actually a lot more.
The last few months at The Vintage Society has been really exciting… and it is time to reveal all the juicy gossip!
About a year ago, The Vintage Society took shape in my mind; I had a dream to take all my creative energy and put it into something I loved – Fashion. I had the concept for a little shop that would sell vintage and re-designed clothes, but would be a hub for girls to come together and inspire each other with their own individuality.
A few months into the forming of The Vintage Society, I started this blog as a way to put my ideas out there and give readers a view into my journey. The blog has grown and I have discovered more about what I love within the fashion realm. I love styling, writing and being a part of this amazing community of Society Girls. My vision has grown beyond just the little shop it started with, and because of this I wasn’t sure which direction to take.
At this crossroads, I was informed of an amazing opportunity that was being offered to women with a vision (I’ll expand..in a moment). I applied – was accepted into the first round – interviewed in LA with two women – was accepted into the final round- interviewed in LA with a panel of women – and finally after two weeks of nail biting found out that I had been selected for a DREAM OPPORTUNITY!
So… what is this opportunity?
It starts with a new clothing line that is launching in Summer 2008. The global brand Quiksilver has developed an amazing women’s line that is all things wonderful. This Quiksilver Woman is one with an adventurous spirit who has moved away from the beach city into the big city and is pursuing her dream of more than the mundane life. She is an artist, an entrepreneur, globally aware and ready to take on the world.
With this girl in mind, Quiksilver is sponsoring six women with independent vision. Their goal is to give these women all the resources they need to make their dream come alive, and I am one of these women!
The hub of this activity is taking place in a site in Los Angeles (the Silverlake area). The site will be used as an office for all the girls as well as an event space to further our goals.
So, Society Girl’s out there.. I will be expanding all the ideals of The Vintage Society over this year. If you live in the area, I will be holding events and trunk shows with the Society inventory. I will also be using the resources of Quiksilver to dive deeper into styling and fashion writing and ultimately see where The Vintage Society lands.
There will be a lot more news on this subject and I will let you in on everything. Thanks for reading and making this opportunity available. You are the ones that have inspired me!
