What a good start of the month and a good start of the weekend! I've officially been selected to be featured in Altered Couture Magazine, a 160-page publication dedicated to altered and embellished clothing and accessories, sold all over the US and Canada!
A few weeks ago I was contacted by an assistent editor of this magazine. I haven't heard of it before, so I was like...hmm'kay. But after I did some research it actually seemed kind of a big deal. The assistent editor found me online through Etsy and was very impressed with my altered clothing from The Bohemian Dream;.. if I wanted to be featured in their magazine. One day later I was contacted by THE editor to talk about the portion of the article and which garments would fit the magazine best. They were impressed with my open back slit designs. So...I designed two garments especially for the magazine. Today I got the official confirmation from the editor that I am selected (although she especially requested my garments, I still had to go through a "selection procedure") to have a spread in the magazine. How awesome is that? What started off as a project, looks like it's really going somewhere. I seriously am cosidering to make The Bohemian Dream an "inhouse sister brand" next to my Lucia Flores Design collections (new stuff incoming!!).
Anyway, wanted to share the designs that are going to be featured. Will be sending these sweaters to the offices of Altered Couture Magazine on Monday, where they will be displayed on a model, how chic! Can't wait until the magazine is being puplished!
What do you think of my open back designs?
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!
