Paseo Feast is a locally sourced dinner that funds emerging art with a vote. Basically, five artists get selected to pitch a project. Attendees eat dinner with the artists, listen to the proposals, and then vote for a project. Whichever artist gets the most votes receives the funding from the night! This year the event will take place at Picasso Cafe at 6pm on April 23, 2013. I am so excited for this great opportunity!
If I were to win, the funds would go towards my collection Designing Beyond the Cure that will be shown at Oklahoma Fashion Week 2013. If you have kept up with my posts or Facebook page you know that what makes this collection so special is that the models in my portion of the show are breast cancer survivors from Oklahoma City’s first young women’s survivor group SHOUT. My project is not just about the clothes, but also about changing measurements of standard from retail sizes to an individual’s body shape.
