I am a Fashion artist looking to create beauty from simple shapes, this year I am being sponsored by IKEA HOMEFUNISHINGS for BALTIMORES FASHION WEEK in order tyo raise money for CHASE BREXTON HEALTH SERVICES, we can not forget that the talent that we are blessed with should be utilized to put beauty into the universe as well as help others and the more people we touch in our lifes journey (IN A POSITIVE WAY) that is how love is spread... I hope that the efforts that I have made touch or inspire many people and I hope that you all will continue to follow in the same path so that we can grow into a stronger happier Nation ... you can see more of the designs at www.flickr.com
FASHION WEEK adds a SENIOR DESIGN ASSOCIATE CARLOUS PALMER
Butterfly Productions, LLC brings on-board a Senior Designer Associate
Designers receive an extra added amenity designers of Baltimore Fashion Week
For the past three years there has been an important element missing with this production tasks of Baltimore Fashion Week. Finally the search is over with the inclusion of a Senior Designer Associate. This search was long and hard to find the perfect person to handle the tasks of working with designers to assist them in perfecting their collections for showcasing during the annual fashion event, Baltimore Fashion Week.
This year the designers will have a shoulder to lean on for those complex questions that arise in the creation of that perfect collection, and that shoulder will be none other than Carlous Palmer. Carlous will be working with designers to answer any questions, provide guidance in creating a “rack ready” collection, and work closely with the Executive Producers of fashion week to create a more cohesive designer line-up during the week of August 9, 2010 through August 13, 2010 the days of Baltimore Fashion Week.
This fashion collaboration was initiated during the summer months of 2009. “It was evident that the expertise and knowledge of a “true” designer person was desperately needed for the continued success of this event. I found it very awkward to handle this type of responsibility without the former training of a design/apparel program, so I searched long and hard to first find a person to fit the mold we created, and then second to find a personality that would fit with the entire team and I believe that has been found in Carlous Palmer. He brings to this event his vast amount of knowledge and experience. My friends call me the Baby Miranda of Baltimore when it comes to this production, and he is my Nigel – and I knew I had to have him as part of our production team to provide that missing link that I felt in respect to the designers was missing”, stated Sharan Nixon, Founder/CEO of Butterfly Productions, LLC.
Carlous Palmer is a creative force and has the knowledge of a well seasoned designer. Carlous has over 20 years of experience in the fashion industry. Creating collections and production fashion shows from New York to Miami, Carlous has that hidden, now exposed talent that all the designers will now experience, as well as the guests of Baltimore Fashion Week.
Carlous will also be showcasing his collection UNIVERSALMULTICULTURAL during a scheduled runway event of Baltimore Fashion Week. You may have seen some of his work on his cable show, Traveling Fashion Tour.
It is time for Baltimore to up it's Fashion Game ... no more fashion shows just for entertainment , Baltimore has too many great designers here and we have the ability to help support our community with our work ,however our community has to work with us and we have to show them how. Chirstian Siriano is just the beginning of how great we are here in B'more and just an example of the vast talent coming out of the Baltimore School For the Arts .
my absence from the Fashion scene in Baltimore has to do with the frustration that many artist may feel when their hard work is not appreciated in the town in which they reside.Then when we make it big everyone is at you and I needed to regroup ,and Palm Beach showed me that People love my designs and no matter where I am just put something fabulous into the universe along with some hard work and the rest will happen with Gods help
“Join us as we welcome Carlous Palmer to this event with open arms,” stated Nixon.
More information can be found about Baltimore Fashion Week on its website – www.baltimoresfashionweek.com. Tickets for this event will be available on April 15, 2010.
