So as many of you know, I've been running a lovely event known as Dorian's Parlor, www.doriansparlor.com. Our event features drinks, hors d'oeuvres, DJs, bands, sideshow performers, vendors, and, most importantly for this post, a fashion show. We're actually becoming known in the city, and we're growing to be pretty big.
We started out this past June. When we started out, a few designers came out, basically taking a huge chance on us, and presented their designs in the fashion show. One of them, Alex London (www.alexlondondesign.com) now has a chance to premier in New York City's Fashion Week. I don't have words for how huge an opportunity this is for him, but I will say that this is what is spoken of when people talk about "once in a lifetime."
However, he does not have the funds required to secure that sort of space. http://fundtheartistsdream.tumblr.com/ was created to help him get that sort of money, and to help future artists also pursue their dreams. I try not to ask my friends for cash, as we're all fairly strapped in this economy, but every bit helps, so whether you have $200 or $2, please consider helping him out. He was good to me, and I wish I could be good to him back.
