A few months ago, in a moment of insane courage, I applied for The Bellevue Collection Independent Runway Show to showcase my fall collection. The very first interview with the panel was so intense that I thought I could pass out at any moment. I stepped inside the room and my breath was taken away because there were so many people (at least 8 people) in the room waiting to interview me. I will never forget that moment, I had to put on microphone and camera was pointing at me, and I knew this is very serious and I needed to stay calm if I was going to make it through this ALIVE.
The interview went well, and I went home knowing that I would be selected to showcase my designs at the show.
Successful meeting with @bellevuecollection 's panels
A few months later, here I am on Seattle Met magazine the September edition feature for the Bellevue Collection Independent Runway Show. I can't believe that we are already more than halfway of the journey and in a few weeks my Autumn Glamour collection will be on the runway of the show. I am so excited !!!
