This past 9 months or so, I have taken a step away from producing the kdon line in order to put things back into perspective and to refocus the direction of the brand and business. It has been a fabulous hiatus if you will. With much time to reflect while working a job in the service industry, I am beginning to see the direction I want the business to take.
A holiday party and studio sale in early December will be the cleaning of all studio closets to make room for what is to come. Stay tuned for more information on that as we get the location and date nailed down!
One thing that has come out of this time off, is a collaborative line with fellow artisan and creative, Terri Potratz. We have teamed up to bring you our “greatest hits album” – fashion style. Pairing some of Terri’s Larry line, and my kdon by Kim Cathers line, we have created the best of the essentials. under:story. We are proud to be manufacturing and selling local, as well as supporting the non-profit organization – Our Social Fabric.
There are many things up this kdon sleeve for the new year, and I hope you will be as excited as me when the word finally hits the street!
ALL THE TIME
Last weekend I was invited to attend the Hastings Race Course in style! A handful of people were selected to sit in a VIP box, with food, drinks and all the rest. My friend Terri Potratz and I went together and – of course – put on our best ‘My Fair Lady’ outfits.
It was a beautiful day, as we got to have a special tour of the paddock, the man in the sky who announces the races to the whole country, a private seating at the official starting gate, and so much more!
It’s free all the time to go watch the races, and I have been there a couple of times before, but this was completely an outstanding experience. We had people teaching us how to bet ( these people are there for your questions all the time apparently! ) They were super informative and helped to explain all the racing “lingo”. I ended up leaving at $0 but had won $60 on a $4 bet but proceeded to lose my winnings as the day progressed ( may have been the white wine) JK. It was so exciting to see the horses and cheer like a crazy person from along side the track!
The Hastings Race Course is one of the only places you can get a serious adrenaline rush for a minimum bet of only $2! The entire staff was helpful and sincere, and I couldn’t have had a better time. One thing I learned while in the VIP booth was that every Friday night there is a DJ – a horse party if you will As much as I love the Sunday fashion dress up times, I will definitely be checking out a Friday!
I was also given a VIP prize pack for two, to give away. Items include:
- Silks Admission, Reserved Seating
- Buffet for 2 Guests in Silks Restaurant
- Official Hastings Program
- Official Hastings Race Course Scarf
- so check Twitter for how to win this!
see you there!
and a HUGE thank you again to the BCLC for hooking us up with an amazing day, and our wonderful hostess Jenn Wint who had every last detail organized and though through!
It’s hard to believe that another 68lb challenge is about to hit the runway again but its true! I have been visiting the local Value Village‘s morning maintenance procedures and bringing home loads and loads of mens suits and sweaters. This season’s collection will be made soley out of these items. Last year I didn’t have any restrictions on what I used to create the S/S 2013 collection, but I decided to kick it up a notch and make it a little more challenging. (as though creating 30 separate runway looks in less than 5 weeks isn’t tough enough!!!)
I am really excited about what I am making in the studio right now, and can hardly wait to showcase it at Eco Fashion Week April 22nd – at 8:30!!
Each ticket to the show gives you a free pass to an exclusive after party at UVA wine bar. The party is private from 10pm -midnight with complimentary food and drinks provided by Cibo so we can celebrate the awesomeness that is Eco Fashion Week and all of our hard work!!
Invite your friends, invite your neighbour, invite your kid, your dog, your boss, the lady on the corner… this type of studio sale happens ONCE A YEAR FOLKS!
Please come get cheery this Friday between 4pm and midnight, there will be plenty of mulled wine, door prizes and organic beer for your enjoyment!
