I know that I’ve mentioned that I was designing a clothing line for women of all body types. Did I mention that I completed the designs last week? The Spring/Summer line consists of 25 designs – 5 designs for each body type.
I think it’s about time I went full force with this. My dream is to have a boutique full of pieces of my own design. Not only will women be able to shop there, they will also be able to pick clothing based on their body type and have my designs tailored to fit them perfectly. I would love to be able to travel the world and be inspired by other cultures in other countries. I would love to be able to bring home materials from other places and put them to good use dressing your body type.
Currently, I’m working on my video for my kickstarter. (If you don’t know what kickstarter is, you should definitely check them out. They not only allow people to get funding they need for arts projects, they also help people stay involved with the projects that they are helping to fund. It’s a great way for someone like me, who wouldn’t normally have access to any type of grants or loans, to gain funding and exposure for projects.) Really, the video is done. All I need now is music for the video. I’m looking for something peppy and feminine, but I can’t use copyrighted music.
If you know of anyone who might want their music featured on a kickstarter project, let me know. It will be credited to them at the end of the video. Like I said, I’m looking for something peppy and feminine, but also fun. Thanks.
Soon, it will be up and I hope to have your full support.
However, I don’t want to cloud my Body Image blog with posts about my kickstarter. I’ll leave a reminder at the bottom of posts, but it will be back to normal body shape/type blogs after this.

EDIT: I found a great song for my video called ” Times Are Changing” by a great local band – Jump Start Your Heart. You can find them on facebook or you can check them out here: www.jumpstartyourheartband.com.
EDIT: December 2, 2011 – The kickstarter was unsuccessful. I will not be pursuing this endeavor any further right now. I do have plans to come back to it later once my company is off the ground.
