Well I was going to be making a dress for the Red Dress Fashion show (heart disease fundraiser) in March, but they only want models to be famous people or heart disease surviors. They have a great selection of people, but I don't know who half of them are and well they all seem rather mature.

Not that I wouldn't mind designing for an older lady. Its just the dress I want to make is rather uh.. youthful and would look silly on an older mature lady.

And after last year, I don't want to have to make a dress for someone who wouldn't apreicate it. Justin (who was in my frist grad class) made a really nice, tulip necked quilted dress for Trudy Ghaliger. Which she wore to the Fashion show (where she was an MC) in May, she and Trevor Doyle proceeded to make fun of it the entire night. While Justin was in the audiance. It was terrible. I wanted to slap them.

If I don't find someone soon, I think I may say forget it. Cause I don't think my style would work on most of the models and I don't want to be on the reciving end of someone making fun of my clothes.


If they would have just given us some damn pictres of these woman it would be sooo much easier, but I am having to google their names and hope that I get the right woman.

Think of it as a challenge - how can you make something pretty and fun that would still appeal to, and look nice on, an older model? I bet you could! Pretend it is a wacky Project Runway challenge :V

If the picture I found is actually of the right woman, I think I found a woman who might work. She is the chair of TNB and looks like she has a fun personality and could pull it off.

I just wish that instead of just naming names they had sent some damn pictures! How am I supposed to design for someone when I don't even know what the hell they look like?

"heart disease surviors"

That group would overwhelmingly skew towards the old, since old people have heart problems far more often then young people.

Seems like this isn't very well organized if they expect people to make dresses without even knowing what the person you're making it for looks like, or if they would even fit into it.

Not to mention some of these people live in frigging Toronto!

How are we supposed to fit them?

Trudy is a moron, like one of the biggest I've met.
