Short Summary

Hi I’m Lila Morency. I was born in Quebec, Canada and lived there until I was 8 when my family relocated to Boulder, Colorado. After 10 years in this beautiful city I moved to Milan. I've now been living in Italy for the past 6 and a half years and I’ve been on the path of becoming a fashion designer. Ever since I organized a small fashion show during my last year of high school, I knew that fashion was going to be in my future. Quickly after high school graduation, I decided to go live in Italy for my sabbatical year in order to more clearly understand what being a fashion designer really meant. I became an apprentice for a designer who had a small company where they produced garments for well-known fashion brand names. There, I got my first taste of this fascinating world. After a year, I was guided to a great fashion institute in Milan where I decided to continue my studies. 

After three incredible and challenging years at the Marangoni Institute, I graduated and was right away offered a job for a casual sports fashion firm. I’ve been working there for almost three years. Take part in all aspects of creating, product researching, and producing the collections.

This past Fall, I decided I was ready to take the leap and start designing my own collection. Last February I had my first fashion show in Florence. What a great experience! It was only intended to be a presentation, a coming out event. Therefore no clothes were sold afterwards.

For this next collection, I’m taking another leap. I’m launching myself into the world of high end fashion, organizing a show during the Milan Fashion week in September 2013. This means that, on top of drawing the clothes, I am now assembling the right team to work with me. This includes pattern makers, fabric factories, specialized seamstresses, and knitwear factories. I am also selecting the runway models, the location, photographers, makeup and hair artists, video makers, caterers, and the general crew for the preparation.

What We Need & What You Get

During fashion week everything costs more. For the show itself (the location, crew, models, photographers, caterers, video makers, and hair and makeup artists) I will need around €30k. On top of this I evaluate that the production of the garments that will be shown on the runway will cost about €20k. I need your help to get lots of publicity in order for the right people such as buyers and fashion journalists to come to the show. So the first thing you can do to be part of this experience is spread the word. Tell all of your friends, family and anyone you know who might have an interest in my project.

I also need your help with the financial part of this venture. Anything helps! I am offering perks for small and large donations from sneak peeks of outfits to garments and the ultimate prize: an invitation to the fashion show for 2. Your chance to mingle with the elite fashion world of Milan!

I will post regular updates to let you know how the collection is evolving.

The Impact

I would like to have a long term impact. Since fashion is present in everyone's lives (we must all get dressed everyday), I hope to be able to inform people about the benefits of using certain fabrics versus others, of wearing garments that have been dyed with natural substances such as fruit and vegetables, instead of chemicals that produce toxic waste and require higher energy consumption. I will do my best to research and find the highest quality and most eco-friendly materials. We, as humans, are starting to pay more attention to how we treat our planet, and I want my work in fashion to contribute to that effort.

Other Ways You Can Help

No worries if you can't contribute financially! I thank you in advance just for the time you took to view my campaign and I hope to have ignited a spark in you to pass the message on to others because it is much easier to have an impact on the world if we all work together. I hope to get many of you involved and excited about this fascinating world of fashion!

ITALIANO

Quello che hai appena visto era un flash sulla mia prima sfilata che è stata a febbraio. E’ stato un’esperienza emozionante, però il prossimo step è di lanciarmi nel mondo dell’alta moda durante la settimana della moda Milanese a settembre. E ho solo due minuti per trasmetterti il mio entusiasmo per il progetto! Ah già, io sono Lila Morency, come sicuramente avrai indovinato. Sono Canadese Francese, Americana, e praticamente Italiana anche e ho intensione di portare la mia visione globale alla prossima settimana della moda.

 Io vorrei creare delle aspettative molto alte per I giovani stilisti in Italia visto che ce ne sono molto pocchi. Io non solo vorrei avere un impatto nel mondo, ma voglio dare a più persone la possibilità di contribuire e far parte di questa nuova avventura creativa. Quindi adesso ti dirò quello che farò nei prossimi mesi:

Durante questa fase iniziale del progetto, sto disegnando la collezione e cercando il team giusto con il quale lavorare. Questi includono:

modellisti, fornitori di tessuti, confezionisti e sarte specializzate, maglifici, e uno showroom per le vendite dopo.

Ho preventivato che mi costerà attorno ai 20 mila euro.

Per quanto riguarda la mia sfilata, gestirò:

La selezione delle modelle da passerella, la location, i fotografi, truccatori e parruchieri, una persona per le riprese video della sfilata e backstage, il catering, un dj/fonico, vestieriste, il team per la preparazione

Visto che tutto durante la settimana della moda costa il doppio, questa parte mi costerà attorno ai 30 mila euro. Lo so…sono tanti soldi…ed è per questo che io ti sto chiedendo di contribuire. Le persone che mi conoscono bene ti diranno che ho il vizio di sognare in grande e che lavoro con molto impegno per realizzare i miei obbietivi. Questo è il mio sogno più grande in questa fase della mia vita ma è anche il prossimo passo che devo compiere per far crescere la mia cariera. Questo è il momento giusto e ce la devo fare!...ne farai parte?

Se farai parte di questo progetto, potrai seguirmi passo per passo nella creazione di un nuovo brand di moda. Significa far parte di una squadra che crede nella magia di prendere elementi della natura e di creare bellissimi capi di abbigliamento, aiutando l’ecosistema perché userò fibre e tinture naturali. Ti ringrazio in anticipo per il tuo contributo e spero che, insieme, possiamo non solo raggiungere ma anche superare la somma che ho specificato qui. Conto su di te per aiutarmi ad avere sucesso nel mondo della moda, una sfilata alla volta.

Ciao e grazie mille!

FRANCAIS

Vous venez de voir un court aperçu de mon 1er défilé de mode en février. Ça a été une expérience fantastique et maintenant je me lance dans la haute mode pendant la semaine de la mode à Milan en septembre. Et j'ai seulement 2 minutes pour vous faire sentir les raisons de mon emballement! En passant, je suis Lila Morency. Je suis Québécoise/ Américaine et pratiquement Italienne et je compte partager ma vue globale à travers ce prochain défilé.

Je veux établir un haut standard pour tous les jeunes designers. Il y a une expression américaine qui dit que "la jeunesse est gaspillée par les jeunes" (si jeunesse savait, si vieillesse pouvait) et bien j'essaie de changer ça! Je prévois, non seulement, faire une différence dans le monde mais aussi offrir l'opportunité au plus grand nombre de gens de contribuer et faire partie de mon aventure créative. 
Alors voici ce que je vais faire dans les mois à venir:
À ce stage initial, je dessine la collection et cherche une équipe qui comprendra:
Des gens pour créer les patrons, des usines de tissus, des couturières spécialisées, des usines de tricot, et une salle où présenter mes vêtements aux acheteurs.
Et ce n'est que pour la production des vêtements! J'estime à 20000 euros le coût pour les réaliser.
 
Pour la présentation de Milan, je dois m'occuper:
De la sélection des mannequins, de trouver un endroit, des photographes, des coiffeurs et maquilleurs, de la production d'une vidéo, des traiteurs, du DJ et équipement sonore, de l'équipe de montage
 
Et parce que tous les prix sont le double pendant la semaine de la mode, cette partie coûtera environ 30000 euros. Je sais.... c'est beaucoup d'argent... Et c'est pourquoi je vous tends la perche. Les gens qui me connaissent vous diront que j'ai l'habitude de rêver grand et de travailler fort pour atteindre mes buts. Ce nouveau rêve est le plus grand à date mais il est aussi l'étape qui suit ce que j'ai établi dans le passé. Maintenant est le bon temps et je me lance... Participerez-vous?
 
Si vous acceptez de participer à mon aventure, vous pourrez suivre chaque étape de la création d'une nouvelle marque de couture. C'est à propos de former une équipe qui croit à la magie qui transformera des éléments de la nature en vêtements magnifiques. 
Je vous remercie à l'avance de votre contribution et de votre aide pour partager mon projet. J'espère, qu'ensemble, nous réussirons à collecter beaucoup plus que le but financier que j'ai indiqué. Je compte sur vous pour m'aider à faire une différence dans le monde un défilé de mode à la fois.
Ciao et merci mille fois!
