I’m going to Medellín Colombia; considered by many to be the fashion capital of Latin America. I’ll be gone July 29th through August 2nd. I’ll be attending the famous Colombiamoda show. I’m staying an extra day to see the sights. Anyone know anyone there or have suggestions? I’d like to visit a fashion school if possible but only find one.
I imagine posting will be light over the next two weeks. The boy (now 21 but I’ve always called him that from birth and am unlikely to change now) is returning home tomorrow for a two week vacation from his training program. While his prognosis will not change, I’m pleased he hasn’t been dis-enrolled. I wasn’t so sure of that when he started nine months ago. The tentative plan is to teach him to digitize patterns into Optitex. Because digitizing in Optitex is really simple; I have high hopes. I’m also thinking of teaching him to sew since the sewing experiment with Eric went so well. The boy hasn’t sewn anything since he was six years old. Then, it was a welt pocket which came out perfectly. He was the case study for the method. Let’s see how well he can learn to bag a jacket…
A note to the powers that be at Apparel. You’re stuck under “Sites I don’t like but visit anyway” for two main reasons:
- I think it’s funny.
- More people will visit you than if I stuck you anywhere else and I do think they need to visit you.
I did an experiment with WWD. They got three times the traffic in that slot. Besides, you’re in good company. The link to my husband’s site is there too.
