Hello! And thank you for visiting this page and for thinking about helping me pursue my dream!

I am a designer and artist. From a young age I couldn't keep pencil away from paper and I sketched constantly: fashion, animals, buildings, people... I also made constantly: stained glass, paintings, photographs, leatherwork, clothing, accessories for my dolls, collages. It seems I'd have landed in art school, but things out of my control at first led me down a different career path. But the voice inside, the creative who can't keep her hands off things, kept getting louder and louder, and eventually I jumped into designing swimwear. 

Four years later, on the brink of making my largest swim order yet and with a screaming voice inside urging me towards building a new resort wear label and opening an atelier, I'm in need of a little kickstart. My hope is that your contributions will allow me to cut back on my part time job so I have the time to complete this large order to the best of my ability and ride the momentum it brings during launch to continue growing my business. I'm also going to be designing and making samples for a resort wear line focusing on easy, functional, high quality pieces, which I'll start selling online and in local markets under a new label. All this to propel me towards opening an atelier, a little studio with a showroom.

Let's review what your contributions will help me do over the next 1-24 months:
1. Complete a large order for a custom swimwear collection whose momentum will ideally allow me to pursue other similar opportunities
2. Source fabrics and make samples for a new resort wear label which will eventually absorb my swimwear label
3. Develop a small collection to take to markets, starting small and moving my way up to Swim Week Miami and Pool Las Vegas
4. Open a small atelier where I can effectively make and sell my clothing, swimsuits, and accessories focusing on a new type of retail and clothing experience for women

So, if you're not in the market for a swimsuit or women's resort wear, I thought this might be a fun way to support my efforts - my dream - and hopefully enjoy the fruits of some of the other skills I have, as well as get some insider peeks into my efforts behind the scenes.
