Recap of the Redesigning the Regency for the Runway Presentation

Recap of the Redesigning the Regency for the Runway Presentation

Thank you to everyone who attended the Redesigning the Regency for the Runway Zoom event, big thank you to Jane Boltz and the JASNA (Jane Austen Society of North America) Southwest Region crew. I was honored to be asked to go in depth about my creative process and give a few sneak peeks into the new Jane Austen collection that will debut on September 10th, 2022 during New York Fashion Week.

I must admit, I had not given a presentation of any kind since my college days, which was close to two decades ago. It's funny, but I wasn't nervous before the presentation, but as soon as I saw how many people were watching my hands started to shake and my voice as well. I'm not sure if I will be brave enough to re-watch the video once it's on the JASNA Southwest Youtube channel, but I'll happily share the link once it is available.

For those who are interested in what I presented and what I conveyed (or tried to convey), stay tuned to the blog, subscribe at janeaustencouture.com or email me at jennyvi@jennyvinewyork.com.

For those who attended the Zoom event and asked for the pictures from my 2 photo shoots from Paris and Versailles (for my cashmere collection) here they are below or you can view the behind the scenes video https://youtu.be/BQ9ZjjNigQ8 -  Photography by Monika Wasko.

Featuring The Construction Of The Emma Gown

The most time consuming part about the dress was all the hours I put into the handwork. From pinning the beading into place, to sewing them to the dress, readjusting the beading, and all the thread knotting, was probably a week on it's own.

I think from the family photo of real life matchmaker Cristina (Conti) Pineda and her family, she is pretty happy with the results.

Featuring Jane Austen's Novel Emma For February
For the month of February, I will be taking characters from Jane Austen's Emma and bringing their wardrobe to life. Creating dresses based from the personalities of Emma, Harriett and even Mrs. Elton. Stay tuned as we create some fun stylized versions of my gowns, like this movie poster from the 2020 version of Emma.

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 incredible Jane Austen. So here is what I would write to her.

Dear Ms. Jane Austen,

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.
