Vogue Fabrics Haitian Fabric Rush is set to end this Friday, Mar. 26th.

Our Haitian Fabric Rush is set to end this Friday, Mar. 26th. The response has been overwhelming. We are planning to deliver our donations in the first week of April. I will post pictures of the delivery in our Facebook photo album so everyone can see the fantastic results of our group effort. I will try and get a gross weight of our donation.

Thanks to everyone who partipated!

The art of Corset Building is strong in fashion.

The art of Corset Building is strong in fashion. Industry giants Christian Dior and Jean Paul Gaultier both showcased corset styles in their Spring 2010 runway shows.
