When we started the Modified Style PDX designs, my mom got some fashion illustration books from the library. I really enjoyed learning how to draw in the fashion way.
I drew this picture, and it was my favorite, and people kept complimenting me and my mom on it, and we thought we could put them on t-shirts and iPhone cases! I drew it on lined paper, so my Uncle Joshua took the lines out and made it nice. You can buy my illustration merchandise at my Cafe Press site! I am so excited about all the different things we can get, like water bottles and shopping bags and lunch bags! So many cool things! Go look!
One of my mom's friends asked on Facebook if anyone had kids from 9-18 to be a part of a video for the hospital, and my mom knows how much my brother and I like to act, so she signed us up!
It was for the Behavioral Health Center, so when families and kids have to go there, they can watch this video and not be so scared. I was really happy I got to be a part of this, not only because it was fun, but because it will help families not be so scared during a hard time.
When we first got there, we got pizza and soda and sat around a lot and waited, because that's what you do in show business. So then we went into the main area, the parents had to stay down stairs. We weren't allowed to wear shoes.
My brother got to play video games and I got to read a book and they took video of us doing that.
Then we got to play outside for awhile, and our parents came out to watch. I drew on the sidewalk with sidewalk chalk, and talked to the therapist and my brother tossed football. It was so easy and fun and we got to meet some other really great people and do service for the community!
Last year I modeled for my mom who made a dress for Modified Style Portland, and this year I get to be a designer! I am really excited about being a designer this year!
With Modified Style, we go pick out our bags of fabric, then have to design with just the fabric that is in the bags. We also get to pick out some notions and lace and buttons to go on it.
We got to go to the Fabric Distribution Party on July 25 and pick out our bags of fabric. We put our name in the drawing and even won some sparkley fake fur!
My mom and brother are designing too, here we all are, with our bags of fabric! I will post more pictures as I go! The show is September 26 and you can get your tickets here!
The gown I designed got to be in another fashion show my mom was a part of! I was so excited it was showing again! Here are some pictures.
If you want to purchase this gown, you can buy it on my mom's Etsy Page.
The model, Torrie, unbuttoned the shoulder button at the end of the runway and showed the back. Mom said there was applause! People loved my design!
Here's my mom on her designer walk with Torrie in my purple gown!
