Behind the Seams : Ashley Sequin Prom Dress
I'm always in shock or rather in amazement how some people find me and want to work with me to design their garments. Thanks to the world of social media, we are both instantly connected through the matrix of IG, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and so on AND interweaved in real life to people with such small degrees of seperation. Anyhoo, one of my social media friends Walter Burch @jollynupe on Instagram referred Ashley to me for her junior prom dress. Ashley happens to be the daughter of Rich Dollaz on the popular show Love and Hip Hop New York. Here's my latest prom baby Ashley...
So before we move forward, this story isn't about being able to make a garment for a celebrity but more so how excited parents are about enjoying their memorable moments in their babies lives. It's about connecting people through love and passion.
You could feel the excitement Rich Dollaz had for his daughter's prom night through the social media world. He took to Twitter and Instragram to express his "proud daddy" moments and that made my heart so full. You all know I'm a Daddy's Girl so it made me blush the night after prom to have my friend's send me screenshots of his moments.
I love candid shots of my client's getting dressed. It's like they have these "I'm super cute moments while I'm getting dressed so I have to snap a pic" lol.
The morning after prom I received the sweetest text messages from both Ashley and her mom. I'll always cherish the personal and real life interaction between my clients ...It's what I do all of this for.
