So I get these ELLE newsletters and occasional I will read them. The most recent e-newsletter had a link to an article on the last seasons winner of Project Runway, Leanne Marshall.
Long story short, she talked about getting her start in fashion. She said she used to tell her stuff in Sacramento, CA at an event called Sellout Buyout. Small world, I grew up and went to college in Sacramento, and lived less then four blocks away from where they held Sellout Buyout.
Truth be told, the event in kind of lame. Most of the stuff sold there was crap: t-shirts that some one cut up in their basement and glued back together, nasty used clothes, and tons of poorly knitted scarves. That being said, it was cool to see that someone could come out of such a setting and create such beautiful clothes.
It just goes to show, you never know.
p.s. Don't forget to enter for the Giveaway. Tomorrow is your last day!
