#NYFWCONTEST

You ask why it’s my dream to attend New York fashion week. Well, here’s my story…

Growing up as a kid, fashion was always of interest to me, and with age, I began to develop a love for it; not only for the clothes, but the ability to express and present myself. I left high school at the age of 17, and by 18, I had already been through 5 career paths, but yet, I was never satisfied with my lifestyle, nor the work I was doing. It was at this point in time I stumbled upon my 6th job at a local screen-printing factory. During this journey, I met Joel, my current business partner, who shared very similar interests to me. As time passed, it was no longer about the weekly paychecks, I became passionate about my job, and for the first time, I felt a sense of direction. Joel and I would often joke about developing our own fashion label, but months later, that joke became reality. 3 years on, we are very proud owners of ‘ACID REIGN’, and although the label is still a work in progress, every day is a step closer to turning my dream into a reality.

Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to be presented with an opportunity to visit New York, and it was an experience that opened my eyes to many new things. I fell in love with the city, and I came back to Sydney with a bigger focus to succeed. Since then, I’ve been longing to return, and when I saw this competition, I knew it was my opportunity to re-visit this beautiful city, and have a chance to take full advantage of the fashion experience NYC has to offer. A trip to New York Fashion Week will not only offer an unforgettable experience and lifelong memories, but it will also take me one step closer to my dream.

For this competition, I’ve gone to the efforts of designing and printing a personalized jersey. Below is the printing process and the birth of the jersey, check out my blog for more photos -
