I had an amazing meeting last tonight. I am working on creating a fashion week in Los Angeles that incorporates all body shapes and sizes. It’s going to be really difficult but there’s already a lot of support, but it takes so much work. I have to find designers, venue, technicians, media, volunteers, etc. There is so much to do and I absolutely have to make sure that it is professional and imitates Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The plus sized fashion industry does not get taken seriously because we keep ourselves so separate and we are so proud that we forget to be professional. People are always watching and waiting for us to mess up so that they can make fun of us. I want this production to be flawless. I think I might also unveil my lingerie collection at it. We definitely can’t do it until February. It has to be at the same time as fashion week and I definitely can’t get everything together by September. I already have some designers in mind, but it’s going to be really exclusive. I’m not letting any bad designers into the show. It’s about quality, not quantity. And the list to get in will be elite as well, just like fashion week...only better.
I’m only in town for one more day and then I’m gone for over a month. My schedule is so crazy, but it’s for a good cause and I’d rather be working too much than not enough.
I also have my NOH8 photo shoot tomorrow, but I’m not feeling very prepared for it. i just found out today that I have to bring something that “represents” me. I was thinking about a big lollipop, but that’s so obvious. I need suggestions!!!
