The Future of Fashion is tempting, but I think I’ll go with the Ready-to-Wear show.

I’d love to go to the Friday Ready to Wear show, or the Thursday AiPD alum show seems cool.

I’d love to go to the Finale Fashion Show : Dream LUXE.

I’m going to throw my hat in the ring for the finale fashion show on Saturday evening.

I participated as a designer in a tiny fashion show in Vancouver (USA) back in 2010 that was attended by Project Runway winner Seth Aaron Henderson. I only had two skirts in the show (, but the experience was so much fun. I’d love to get to be an audience member.

If I am lucky enough to win tickets, I’ll take my son’s girlfriend. At age 18, she’s already interned for a Portland designer and is headed to college to study marketing, with a particular interest in the fashion industry.

I’d love to go to the Finale Fashion Show : Dream LUXE, since it seems like that one would have the most complex details to drool over and be inspired by.

Wow! I am not a fashion designer per say but whenever I design my clothes, they are unique and I wear them well. People are always asking Jan where did you get that some sick comment like I am not creative enough to do it. Wanna take a peak… give me a free ticket. Future of Fashion show for me.
