Behind the Seams: Stitched Fashion Camp

August 23, 2013
Last week I had the pleasure of speaking at Stitched Fashion Camp.  I was asked to talk to the campers about fashion week.  For me, music is such a huge influence on me and, therefore, on my Boy Meets Girl® collections and runway shows! It was such an amazing experience for me

I visited on the last day of the two-week summer program and what I saw was truly out of this world. The students had designed their own prints and had the fabric printed with SpoonFlower. I had never heard of Spoon Flower before and wish I knew about them when I first started my business.  You can upload your designs and order a yard of fabric just like that. Wow, the ultimate DIY indeed! The students also learned how to sketch and sew, and when I got there had already sewn the pieces they had designed.

I was so impressed by the kids and their sewing and sketching abilities – all of which they basically learned in just two weeks!  You can thank the camps co-founders Rob Younkers and Joe Zee for that.  They really gave the kids a ton of attention and created a great fashion experience for them.  I wish I had had an opportunity like this when I was there age.

Funny/interesting tidbit - While I was there, I challenged the students to think about a musician "muse" who they would want to dress with the pieces they had designed. Joe made me explain what a muse was, as I forgot that I was speaking to 8-14 year old children!  As someone deeply fascinated by marketing and this age group, it was very interesting to see who the kids picked as their muses.  There was a bunch of Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Keisha and Paramore fans.

Thanks again to Rob, Joe and especially the kids for listening to me and making me feel so welcome.

Behind the Seams: Accessory Council's Bridal Accessory Event

August 19, 2013


I recently attended the Accessory Council's Fall bridal accessories trends event (#actoppicks) to display our Boy Meets Girl® personalized hoodies and cover the event for the blog! The event was held at 91 Horatio presented by The Upper Crust & the talented Dan Fehlig! I had never been to this space before and fell in love. It is a perfect venue for future brides and for those who want to host a dinner party! Dan Fehlig and his team create the perfect aura and their attention to detail was impeccable. Evening product highlights were presented by former editor-in-chief of Brides Magazine, Millie Martini Bratten and AC's Karen Giberson. It was so much fun presenting these personalized bridal gifts and seeing old friends and meeting new ones as well as finding incredible pieces for the a bride or the bridal party! Wish I could get married all over again.... 



Some of my other favorite highlights from the night include; eco-friendly watches from Sprouts, Jack Rogers white sandals, Roman Bride accessories and Marchesa handbags.





 What are your favorite bridal trends this year?
