Sierra Brill, Vail Mountain School student, approached our owner, Rhonda Swenson, at the beginning of the semester with a goal of putting on a Krimson Klover fashion show for her senior project. As part of her project she would also intern with us at the office to learn the day-to-day operations of a fashion manufacturer.
On her first day as an intern Sierra helped us create knitting specifications for the Fall ’13 sweater samples. While this is a long and rather cumbersome process she later said that “for someone enchanted by fashion it was really exciting to learn about how design works.”
With a task like putting together a fashion show, there is a lot of work that must be done. After meeting with the KK team she had checklist of what needed to happen in order to pull off the event.
After locking down her models, Sierra enlisted the help of her photographer father and a few models to have a photo shoot in Vail Village. The pictures were excellent and we spent some time getting together the images and creating e-blast invitations for the show.
With a date and time set for the fashion show the ball was rolling. During her next few visits to the office Sierra put together looks and model sequences. With the help of the KK team we tweaked them and made sure they were eye-catching.
The day before the show Sierra held a dress rehearsal and even more changes were made to the outfits - shoes were shuffled, accessories were added and colors were altered.
When the show rolled around the next day Sierra had obviously done the work, with woodland decorations, appetizers and a red carpet it was welcoming and elegant atmosphere.
The high-energy models kept the crowd smiling throughout and did an excellent job showcasing the Krimson Klover line. It was a great success, job well done Sierra and congratulations on finishing off your senior year with a bang!
