Another awesome event! This event was held at IFDC tonight. Randall unveiled his new collection especially for this convention & spoke about his inspiration. He said that he was inspired this time by seeing footage of Marilyn Monroe’s unfinished film “Something’s Got To Give”. We all were able to watch some footage from this movie during the event. Then Randall mentioned that he discovered MadMen! I totall knew it!!! I’m such a HUGE fan of that show, you have no idea!! So I was thoroughly excited when he showed a slide show of pictures from the show of the cast in their costumes! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
Randall did a give-away, and I actually won!! My 2nd RTW outfit today – WooHoo! Beginner’s luck I’m sure…. this is my first IFDC…. So today I won an outfit from his last collection — “Curacao”. Anyway, there were 6 outfits in this collection and they were limited editions of 50. He presold 20 full collections and the rest will be available in the sales room that opens tomorrow. So He did a drawing for the 20 people who will be able to purchase the full collection, and wouldn’t you know it – I won that too! I’m seriously on a roll… or a massive spending spree, LOL. There were also 2 outfits that were only limited to 7 or 9, I can’t remember which one was 7 & which one was 9. They ran out of the fabric and so they couldn’t complete a full set of 50. Randall also mentioned that this same theme will appear in his collection that will come out toward the end of this year. I can tell he’s really inspired by the 50’s/60’s. That collection will have 7 outfits in it.
He also mentioned that he has comnpleted an “office” to match the rest of his furniture set, but he’s working on pricing at the moment since the manufacturer is asking too much. So we’ll see how that pans out.
