Dear Jane: Thank You For Inspiring Me

Dear Jane Series by Jennyvi New York

Throughout my life, I've been avid about writing my thoughts down in a journal or a word doc. This year, I want to try something new and maybe just blog it out as if I were corresponding with the infamous Jane Austen. So here is what I would write to her.

Dear Ms. Jane Austen,

My Rescheduled Return To The Runway

My Rescheduled Return To The Runway
I suppose it is a gift to have time for my Pride and Purpose Project that I was going to work on after my runway show and develop along with my new venture in sewing Jane Austen themed clothing. Now, I can share the process and see how each gown story plays out on the runway. But the pressure is on to have a more cohesive collection and hope the gowns don't fall flat.

Sewing with Pride and Purpose

Sewing with Pride and Purpose

In the next year I have many Jane Austen goals to fulfill and the Pride and Purpose Project is one of them. Stay tuned as I will blog about each gown I make, the research behind each piece and the story I want to tell with it. 

Stay tuned! I have a lot of work ahead of me for my New York Fashion Week show that was rescheduled to September 10th, 2022.

Remembering the moment when I saw the Dashwood Sister gowns in person on Cori, Jillian, and Kristin made my day. And I definitely needed some cheering up, since the newsletter comes after deciding to reschedule my New York Fashion Week show from February to September due to the pandemic surge. 

Stay tuned, I will be much more active in sharing the design process and developing my new Jane Austen collection

Creatively Connecting with Jane Austen

With the help of Jane Austen and fellow Janeites, I am happy to say that the creative beast has been busy sewing for the JASNA AGM (Jane Austen Society of North America Annual General Meeting). After joining JASNA in July, I received a very warm welcome from several members and so I started my journey in "Redesigning the Regency." A fun side project that combines my love of fashion history, Jane Austen and seeing my work alive in the world.
