Not too long ago I posted a picture taken after the pre-judging for Project Fundway, a contest open for aspiring high school and college kids in the Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland region who aspire to become fashion designers. I received an email containing the flyer from the producer with the names of the four finalists: Angela Robinson (West Potomac Academy), Kim Truong (VCU), Daniel Herbick (Bethesda Chevy Chase High School), and Agata Miczek (VCU).
The show would be held at The Warner Theatre (13th and E Street NW, Washington D.C.) on November 4th, host by Kate Michael and Harry Thomas Jr. And red carpet coverage by Kenny Flanagan and Ryan Charchian (I hope I'll get interview *wink wink*).
I have no idea what the kids are going to show next Thursday (though I been familiar with Kim Truong's work I can't augur what she's going to show for this occasion, but I'm sure it's going to be hot), but I hope to see a promising sparkle of light of a future industry leader. I sure would be there, and I hope to see you all there supporting the fashion youth (if you see me say hi, I don't bite).
