We just found out that "Suede" is coming to Sew Expo!! I'm not talking about the suede your dressy boots are made out of...
I mean "Suede" -- the PROJECT RUNWAY DESIGNER..!! The one I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED. Even though he did talk about himself in the third person a lot. Since I started doing the show's Facebook page -- I understand why he enjoyed that so much.
Hey -- Simplicity recently inked a deal with Suede -- and they're bringing him to SEW EXPO TO LAUNCH HIS NEW LINE..!!
His bio, from his website:
"Suede" is best known as being a contestant on Project Runway Season 5. He was known for his talent, style, and strong kind character. "Suede" also generated much conversation about his tendency to speak in 3rd person, as well as his signature colored faux-hawk. As a semi-finalist on Project Runway, making it to the top five, Suede was asked to show a collection at Bryant Park.
Long before his Project Runway fame – Suede was an experienced designer, working for Jordache – or dressing well-known names such as Britney Spears, Brooke Burke, Lil' Kim, Destiny's Child, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera and Mandy Moore.
Suede recently signed an exclusive deal with Simplicity Creative Group and will be personally commentating his premiere pattern collection at the 2011 Sewing & Stitchery Expo, March 3-6, in Puyallup, Washington. His new Simplicity designs will be featured on the cover of JoAnn’s Fashion Fusion magazine in February. Suede’s patterns feature modern silhouettes with multiple styles featuring classic, edgy and feminine flirty looks.
We'll post the exact where and when as those details become available!!
THANKS, SIMPLICITY!! Suede rocks!!
