Rock Royalty daughter of Hunt Sales Cali- She's like my second child. This shows how close up detailed images rule over runway photos. This net dress from my show is glorious. I'll be listing all day tomorrow. I also have a lot of old style Boudoir Queen that we made and did not use in our show. Grab it because they are one of a kind. Also get ready for fab vintage and our new bed jacket designs. Photo Mark Younger-Smith Designs -mua and styling by yours truly
I've started the very tedious and slow process of updating my lookbook,website and Etsy shop. On my website several items will be "coming soon" until Thursday. I just did Elle Vietnam, Zink, Austin Monthly and Bust and I'm waiting for some clothes to come back from New York. I'll be listing all week. I have so many items and credits it will take some time. The photos will change and descriptions as well. I've also just contacted all my clients. This year the RTW is repeatable so even though an item is sold the listing will remain. The one offs are obviously not repeatable. I can do the high neck black with the arm bands again. Also I have more articles coming out and the video of my show possibly tomorrow. xox BQ
I'm seeing some big time Irina Ionesco vibes coupled with Steven Arnold vibes in this shoot. That last image looks just like our skirt from last year in Flaunt which is also coming out in a magazine in October- I like this editorial very much-
I hope I can get a photo of the wicked spiked Christian Louboutin shoes she was wearing - you may have seen Lady GaGa in the same shoes they are soooo cool but very hard to walk in as you will see in the video.
My good friend Gary Dorsey from Pixel Peach presented me with my award. This was his speech-click on the image to make larger (rough draft a couple of typos but they'll be a video)
Me receiving the Trailblazer award last night at the Austin Music Hall. What a great night and next year I'll be on the advisory board again. Thank you to all my blog readers who voted! Photo by the CW austin
Up at the top of this blog is a link to my Twitter. Click there the view all of the articles and reviews of my show. Looks like it was a huge success. I'm on cloud 9.
Here's some photos of a few girls back stage.
Hi everyone! I am so excited about the show tomorrow night and I can't wait to see all my friends and customers/boutique friends. I'm sorry for my lack of blogging. Not only am I busy with my show but I'm pulling and shipping out for a major magazine editorial the day after my show. Also doing magazine interviews and T.V. interviews for fashion week. I'll be at the fashion awards show. Thanks to everyone who nominated me. There were a lot of great people nominated. I think around 65 nominees. I'll be sure and let you all know the results. I can't believe the big day is tomorrow. Be sure to watch us on the news and especially YNN tomorrow for a little quickie tease. See you at the show! xox BQ
a little evening gown sneak peek from our new 2013 collection I hope you all can come to my show this Thursday night at the Driskill. I go on first at 7:15 so don't be late! xo BQ
