Assist in Funding NYFW SS'22
As many people now know, in November of 2019, I was invited by Oxford Fashion Studio (a London based fashion company focused on gaining independent fashion designers exposure and recognition). I was asked to present an 8-Look Collection at New York Fashion Week for the Spring and Summer 2022 Season. As of today, this event is just about one year away, which means all the preparation I have undergone these past ten months is about to be put into motion. I have already begun paying for runway expenses, models, and other production expenses while acquiring the necessary sewing equipment to design and construct these 8-looks successfully. I have been able to pay these expenses due to payment plans alongside my savings.
New York Fashion Week is a fantastic opportunity that has the potential to possibly jump-start my career draws nearer as do additional expenses that I do not currently have the means to handle on my own. These expenses include but are not limited to; material costs to bring the complete collection to life (fabric, thread, notions, specialty equipment), travel expenses to New York City (for myself and the garments), lodging during my time in New York, photography and styling expenses, shoe rental expenses, and any other expenses that have yet to be seen thus far.
All funds received will be utilized beginning in this November to order the final fabrics (materials), through September of 2021 as they are needed as expenses have been required in chunks through the process this far.
I truly am forever grateful for any support I may receive; this will be the event that will jump-start my fashion career that many only dream of. Thank you for your everlasting and continuous support. I hope to make every one of you proud this time next fall.

What is NYFW
"New York Fashion Week is the bi-annual event of runway shows and presentations used to highlight designers’ collections for the next fashion season. Although, in some cases, a few designers have begun to opt for a “see now, buy now” model, where the collections they show are for the current season. The event is organized by WME/IMG and the Council of Fashion Designers America (CFDA).
It is part of the Fashion Month, which also includes Fashion Week’s for London, Milan, and Paris. Annually, NYFW is attended by more than 230.000 visitors with more than 300 shows in 7-9 days: a study reveals that New York Fashion Week generates over 900 million dollars for the City’s economy yearly. Next to the existing NYFW, menswear got its own standalone Fashion Week called New York Fashion Week: Men’s. That event also is bi-annual and being promoted by the CFDA." [Fashion United]
