{ The Tim and I }

 We had the honor of meeting Mr. Tim Gunn today, what a gentleman!
Schmoozing with Tim Gun is like talking to your wise best friend you know you should listen to.
we covered a few topics, all close to my heart;
  • How to look put together even though you have small kids at home. ( I have three, I try to look put together, and often end up looking pulled apart. Or at least peed on!
  • Tim puts this, and many other things down to Silhouette, Proportion and Fit. ( you can see more about that Here)
  • How to survive in the fashion industry. He said- " you'd better really love it, or you won't" (Survive, that is.) I couldn't agree more...

{ I Heart ITS }

The Year I graduated Shenkar College, I was fortunate enough to be chosen to compete in the ITS 5 (International Talent Support) Competition in Italy. This meant that my graduating collection was selected from over 800 entries, to be shown on the runway in Trieste. It was an awesome experience. I was lucky to meet super talented individuals from all over the world, and to learn from them.
I even walked away with the WGSN best collection prize!

I'm bringing this up now because the wonderful people behind ITS have become like family to me. and they have given Hokey Croquis a fantastic write-up in their in focus section; HERE

So massive thanks to  my ITS family! And go check out the review>
