final collection preview

So... maybe I forgot I had a blog over the last week or two. :)
I've been so ridiculously busy! We had our final critique for our collections, which went amazingly well. It was a really rewarding end to 9 months of working my butt off. Jay Ott, a DAAP alumn and designer for The Row, led the critique and said that some of my pieces really reminded him of Margiela. That was a pretty sweet moment.The weekend after the critique, my family had a big graduation party for my little sister and I, because she graduated high school that night. I had relatives in town all weekend, and my birthday was on Memorial Day, so the celebrating continued.Last week was a whirlwind and I can barely remember what I did. Thursday my mom, my sister, and I left for Dallas to look for my next apartment. We drove 16 hours there, spent a few hours looking at apartments, found a real cute one, shopped for an hour, then started the drive home. It was pretty nuts. Now I have 4 days until our huge fashion show, 5 days until COLLEGE GRADUATION (whoa!), a week and a half until I leave for Australia, and almost exactly one month until I permanently move to Dallas.
Doesn't it feel like life is moving awfully fast all the sudden?

Well, while I'm waiting to get back the professional photos of my collection, here is a sneak peek of my senior thesis, Linguistic Relativity.

  1. My name is Jody Bacon and I’m the Cincinnati Showcase Director of an arts organization called RAW:natural born artists.

    Every other month I hand-select and showcase 40 artists in film, fashion, music, visual art, photography, accessories, performing art, hair & makeup as well as Djs etc.

    I would like to speak with you about the opportunity to be showcased at this July’s event.

    RAW operates in 54 cities across the U.S. We will be International by 2014.

    We will be hosting three fashion shows (one of which you might be able to fill), a visual artist gallery (20 artists), 3-4 live bands, a film screening and featured hair stylists, and makeup artists, as well as accessories designers.

    A film crew and photographer are present at every event. You get a full media kit to promote your creations further and independently. We also have a plethora of other opportunities that we offer through the community both online and offline.

    There is NO FEE for our artists, however commitment, communication, and follow-through are a MUST and all artists will be expected to contribute to ticket sales. I’d like to set up a phone call to discuss this and see if it’s a good fit for you. If this sounds like something that could benefit you please email me with a couple dates & times that work for the call. It could take up to 25 minutes.

    In the meantime check us out…

    Here is our website:

    And here is a link to our welcome video: (explains everything nicely)

    Here’s a link to a video of what you can expect interview wise:

    This gives a good visual of who we are and what we do.
    I look forward to hearing from you,
