Clothes may make the man, but when man makes his own clothes, he's able to finally break the curse that turns him into a mannequin after sundown. Find fashion freedom with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get one admission to the Fashion Designers Bootcamp seminar, sponsored by Hawaii Red Magazine and Hawaii Fashion Incubator (a $153.71 value including tax). The seminar takes place Saturday, August 27, 8:30 a.m.–3 p.m. Attendees may purchase lunch on site or bring their own.
Fashion Designers Bootcamp aims to ignite industry passion in both learned and aspiring designers alike. Designer Theo Garcia, featured on MTV and E! Entertainment, guides participants through the five steps of launching a fashion line, from concept, to creation, to marketing dresses hewn from solid titanium. Attendees may also delve into such industry facets as couture, street wear, and tailoring. Also hitting the podium with a full quiver of sewing needles will be brand-identity expert David Tyreman, scheduled to speak on his experiences catapulting such brands into stardom as Nike and Polo.
Although the seminar officially ends at 3 p.m., a duo of post-event extras further pushes patrons to go after their goals. The Launch Your Line lounge commences immediately after the seminar and affords attendees time to network with industry professionals. In October, clients can also take part in a conference call with Theo and David to check up on creative pursuits and practice three-part harmonies of Right Said Fred ditties.
