Artists are famously procrastinators. I am no exception. I think I am pretty good at budgeting time and planning my life down to the second, but at the end of the day, nothing gets you going quite like waiting until you can't wait anymore.
I actually think I am way better at not procrastinating than many people, but if I don't have a deadline to get something done, it may take me months. Luckily for me, I have several events in the next few months that will prevent me from procrastinating too much. The first one is the Oscar party at the MCA. This event is for Denver's Film Society. Many local designers were asked to donate an evening piece for this event that was inspired by a nominated person. My dress is for Carey Mulligan, one of my all time favorite celebrities I would like to dress. I think she is one of the cutest girls around and I love her taste for edgy fashion. The dress is a black satin mermaid style dress with hand sewn chain detailing on the bodice and sheer upper bodice. My dress is inspired by her, but it is not something I would actually dress her in (I'd love to see her in a color, like purple).
Another event I have coming up is the ADCD Paper Fashion Show in March. This yearly event is something I have wanted to do for a few years now, but always missed the deadline for. I was so excited to sign up for it this year because I have a super fun idea. Many designers go crazy with their designs for this show because it is, after all, paper. But I wanted to create a piece that looks like something you would wear if it was not made of paper. I think I'll keep the exact design a surprise, but it does involve hundreds of handmade paper roses. I definitely can't procrastinate on this one.
Who knows what other projects I'll get involved in this year, but I definitely can't wait!
