Hello All, I am Jenny Howe, with Devushka and I am desperately seeking seamstresses!Gil should remember me, but if you haven't heard of the Devushka project, it is essentially a vintage inspired line of dresses created by myself and my business partner Kim. "Devushka" means girl in Russian, so we have a bit of an Eastern European flair.
We have been designing the dresses and showing / selling them in local fashions shows and events all over Austin for the past few months. In fact, our first show made "Austin's 10 Best Fashion Events of 2007," in the Chronicle!
Carmen Montoya was a wonderful asset to our winter line, helping us create a full inventory of dresses in less than three months. However, we are now about to expand with an on-line store, and would like to, in turn, expand our network of seamstresses. We need a group that is capable of cranking out a rather large number of dresses over the next year, and would pay per dress, a value depending on the difficulty of each dress. The group can be either a shop or individuals, as we worked last round with an alterations shop in Florence, and Carmen as well.
If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please email or call me at 512-507-9176.
