The Icon Collection

By Turquoise Flamingo


Hello! My name is Cathy and I would like to tell you about my exciting project. It's a new dress collection inspired by two fashion icons of the past - Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot. Each design has 14 dresses made in varying colours and sizes, altogether making 28 dresses in the collection.

As the owner of Turquoise Flamingo, a vintage clothing store in Cork, I wanted to create my own collection, taking the inspiration from all the vintage clothing I work with, in particular iconic pieces which I believe are portrayed perfectly through these two women.  The dresses have already been designed and the fabrics have been chosen. The next step is to raise the money to buy the materials and work closely with a seamstress to make theses designs into a real collection for people to purchase, wear and enjoy. The dress collection will be scheduled to launch at the start of December 2011.

10% of all the sales from the collection will be donated to SHARE in the run up to their Christmas fundraising.

I ask you to read over my list of rewards and pledge your support in whatever way you can to make the The Icon Collection happen. All funds raised will go towards the materials needed to create this collection and the skills of an experienced seamstress. Thanks for reading!

Progress so far...

The fabric has been chosen, the pattern cutter has been busy and the seamstress is now on board. €770 raised so far, fingers crossed I reach the target before the deadline! Thanks to all my sponsors so far, I really appreciate your support.
