ACRE PROJECT






















 I am really proud of how everything went with my first runway. It felt extra special to me, because not only was it my first show, but I was also involved in the planning and organizing of it all. I learned a few valuable lessons of what to do, and not to do next time. This event, for a controlling person like me, was an a real eye opener. You can prepare everything, but once the models leave the backstage to walk the runway, breath because their performance is literally out of your hands.

ACRE Projects got lots of positive reviews. I especially like the one from IX Daily, here are a few excerpts:  "Why is it that you choose the frame to fit the painting, but fashion collections are chosen to fit the show? What do you do when you’ve got a vision for your work, but not the right arena for exhibition? You create your own platform.(...) In addition to showing some exceptional work, A.C.R.E. embodied a truly artisanal approach to fashion design that was refreshing after Fashion Week season. It reminds us not to remove the collections from the designer’s vision, it recognizes how crucial the platform is to the work shown.  If you want to read it all, click here. More photos coming soon!

  8. Congratulations Melissa! I knew it would be a great success & I love that shot of you with all the models! :)
    I think the quote from the writeup is great too, especially ' It reminds us not to remove the collections from the designer’s vision, it recognizes how crucial the platform is to the work shown' - this is so, so true... The venue sets the whole tone & mood for a presentation & the way the clothing is percieved. I don't think you could have picked a more perfect space to show yours!
