Hello fashion lovers, our names are Gordana Rasic and Omar Villalobos, head representatives of the up and coming Chicago fashion label, GOCA. We come to you to ask for help; we need to raise up to 5,300.00 in order to go to our showing during New York Fashion Week. Within the last week, we were chosen out of 30 candidates within our group to showcase our newest collection for the Fall/Winter 2012 season. As two young college students, we launched the label in Chicago in June 2011 and to have been able to come this far is truly an honor. We are aspiring to achieve our dreams, but unfortunately, we have little funds to be able to fully achieve them. And that is where you can come in and help; help by donating funds to take us to New York Fashion Week. We will also be collaborating with two jewelry designers, The 3 Heart's Boutique and Nicole Designs All, as well as a handbag designer, Sheetal Patel of G.I.A Luxe
As two students that desire and respect fashion, we wish to revive the artistry within the fashion industry. We are strong advocators of supporting the arts within our communities, have participated in the Make A Wish Foundation (raised 5000.00 to support a child's dream), and are currently in the works of establishing our own collaboration with a non-profit organization for future ventures. We have invested much time and work into this project not to acquire fame, not to acquire riches, but to acquire a strong enough voice where we can speak for so many who have not been able to, Our dedication is to the arts and the public, you, and by going to New York Fashion Week, we hope to revive that effort in other designers to give back to their communities.
What We Need & What You Get
For this campaign, we are aiming to raise 5,300.00 to cover the expenses of reserving our space at the show (3000.00), traveling expenses (2,000.00 - We will be spending 5-6 days in New York to cast our models, run through our show, and conduct fittings, so hotel stay is quite costly even for the "cheapest" locations our research was able to find) and finally fabric/fitting costs (300.00) We have calculated the most minimal amount that we could determine, and even after cutting corners, our total has come to 5,300.00. We ask for you to donate, even the smallest amount which will be greatly appreciated, to help us show the world that dreams can come true. Not for just us, but for all other aspiring designers, singers, musicians, models, painters and so many others.
