Imagine getting contacted three weeks out before New York Fashion Week asking if you would present a collection in Oxford Fashion Studio's Show at the beautiful High Line Hotel. It was hard to believe, trust me. Going from thinking this must be an internet scam, to I thought no one actually looked at my website and oh my god I have three weeks to find a way to get my garments to New York.
That is when one of my tutors from Toi Whakaari mentioned crowd funding. With the help from some awesome individuals I started a pledge me campaign. I managed to raise more then the $2000 I had campaigned for. This was donated by friends, family and people I have never met. It was extremely inspiring to see all these people support me in this opportunity.
