Ode to a Dress..

Oh, this takes me back...

My mother bought it for me right before I left to go study fashion design in Buenos Aires. That was back in 2007, when Forever 21 finally changed their look and became the amazing store where I go in and have to buy at least 2 dresses. I found this dress--which would later become an iconic dress for me--an evident Missoni rip off from F21 spring/summer collection.  I was instantly drawn to it by its amazing colors which I often associate with an Argentine candy label (Rhodesia), and remember not being sure if it was a shirt or a dress.  Since I love mini dresses, obviously that's how I sported it around the world with me on an incredible number of trips, through an embarrassing amount of boyfriends,  and overall its just been my companion and overall "feel good" dress for the past 5 years.  Below are just a few of the images I found of me in the dress, doing random things, in random places.

This is INDI Apparel's latest video--directed by Donny Tran  (a-MA-zing!)

  We shot it in downtown Tucson--it is meant to show the INDI Apparel woman, in action--wearing three different INDI dresses and how they adapt (in length, color, shape) to her activities throughout the day.

Special thanks to my team during the shoot:
Hair and Make-up was provided by Amber Zabaleta
Model: Monica Lam
Music:  Tristyn Tucci from In Search of a Word

The full video as shown in Phoenix Fashion Week 2011 can be seen below:

The left side shows you the progression of her day, as the right side shows you how the different garments transform!  Enjoy..

Networking and Promoting

Leading up to Phoenix Fashion Week, INDI is taking on a LOT of promotional events.  It's been a lot of fun for me to meet a lot of people in the press, and in the business in general--it's such a big part of fashion! Networking has become a big part of my life, and being naturally socially inclined, I've been having a blast. Up next: Fashion shoot with 202 Magazine tomorrow in Phoenix, and also a live interview with Louanna on "REAL TALK" at 4pm PHX time. (see flier )

Special thanks to the team at Phoenix Fashion Week for making this all happen!  

On another note, I attended Tucson's Hispanic Chamber of Commerce mixer on Friday--they had an amazing Mexican Independence Day celebration--including a marvelous mariachi group and some of my favorite local salsa musicians! Special thanks to Juan F. Ibarra for recruiting me, and for being my unofficial mentor as I work my way in as a designer.

Stay tuned for more...
