:: WE HAVE JUST FIXED OUR ISSUE WITH PAYPAL CONTRIBUTIONS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATIENCE ::
Hello! My name is Alex London and I am an internationally published and acclaimed fashion designer.
You may of seen my work in:
Vogue Gallery Exhibition
Z!NK Magazine - Cover with Taylor Momsen
Amanda Palmer's Music Video for "Map Of Tasmania"
Fashion Gone Rogue
"Shatter Me" Book Cover
....and too much more to list!
But I have one major problem... I have no investors or start up funds.
Fashion week is a dream for me, I have done it once before and my life has never been the same since. It was amazing to see that I could be a part of that elite group of people that show in this amazing venue and stand side by side with that level of designer. Unfortunately it is a very expensive venture, and even though I have done all I can to find as many part time jobs as I can cram down my throat, my efforts have remained fruitless.
WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO!
I am currently in the process of trying to put together the funds for my Fall - Winter 2013 collection that currently remains without a title.
Where the money is going,
We will be putting together a 15 piece micro collection consisting of hand embroidered and beaded lace veils, gowns, full length skirts, and lingerie.
We will also be putting together a fashion film that will be released at the show or presentation for the collection
With all of this my friends have been amazing supporting me when they can, and I am forever grateful for all that they have and will be doing.
As the collection grows and hits various states of completion we will be posting massive video blogs, pictures, behind the scenes shots from photo shoots from look books to campaign as well as video shout outs to the amazing people that made this all possible
The new collection will be like nothing anyone has ever seen before, and I hope to bring a new voice to the industry, but I truly need your help to do so.
HERE ARE THE DEETS
As of now I am looking to get this collection done for 11k, a bit lower then what I may need in full but I don't feel right to ask for anything more.
And here's where it goes, I'll sample this to break down into one dress.
Full hand beaded french lace dress (finale dress):
8 yards of beaded lace- 275.00 a yard
15 yards of silk tulle - 50.00 a yard
36 hand pressed buttons - 6.00 a pack
The image of this amazing model at the end of this... priceless ;D
So you can see how this shakes out, for one gown.
BUT FEAR NOT! YOUR EFFORTS ARE NOT WITHOUT REWARD!
Even if you can only give a dollar, that is amazing aswell. If 10,000 people gave a dollar... this would be a dream come true <3

ALEX LONDON'S FAVORITE PERSON
You will receive... EVERYTHING! Everything listed will be yours and at your disposal, as well as the heart felt gratitude of myself. This would mean so much to me, and you have no idea the sort of impact it would have on my life.
I understand I am asking for a lot, but if we don't make our goal, that's okay... every penny will be put into making this collection be as beautiful as possible :)
WHAT WILL HAPPEN!
This could change my life, I have been doing this for a long time and I need to make a serious go of it. As of the last few years this has been the effort of myself and my parents but that isn't a great business model and can't last forever.
I will do what I can to make my impact on the world, and show people a new beauty they didn't realize was there in the first place.
Everyday I watch people comment on my FB Fan Page and I am absolutely amazed to see how my work is effecting people. It's fantastic.

If you know anyone who works in the industry and would able able to help out with fabric sourcing or sewing! Again! Please let them or myself know!
Seriously, anything you are able to do in any way shape or form means more to me then you can possibly understand!
