I auditioned for RVA Fashion Week a little while ago, and I’m so excited to announce that I got in! Read on for the lowdown on what I’m planning for the show, and a sneak peek of my upcoming collection.

This dress has only one vertical seam, in the center front. It’s lined, but has no hem. In fact, it’s just one large piece of fabric, attached to a circular collar, with a separate belt.
