Help Tessa Get Her Collection To New York

About-

Hi I’m Tessa Paaymans and I have been invited by Oxford Fashion Studios to show a collection of six garments during New York Fashion Week on September 12th 2015.

It is a massive opportunity to be able to represent young New Zealand designers. I have been designing and making for eight years. I have previously studied at Eastern Institute of Technology in Fashion Apparel and graduated in 2013. I am currently studying at Toi Whakaari New Zealand Drama School in Costume Construction. 

Oxford Fashion Studio’s talent scout contacted me through my website www.tessapaaymans.com and invited me to take part of this year’s up and coming runway show held during New York Fashion Week. I was asked to take part in the conceptual design categories within their range of shows held over the week. 

I need funding to take my collection to New York. Due to the short time frame I have been given to get myself and my garments to New York I have decided to try and raise $2000  and  use all my personal savings for the rest so I don't miss out on a future changing opportunity. The participation fee, photography, accommodation, travel insurance, and flights will cost $4129.71
