Designer Spotlight: : Make Way For The Talented Heather Krogemann

Heather is a Colorado-based designer and owner of Alien Earth Designs. She is a fashion designer, animator, artist, and is currently finishing her master’s degree in costume design. Sewing and creating have been a part of her life since she was very young. However, she didn’t start fashion and costume design until 2010. In 2013 she created her first wearable art piece which was displayed in Hawaii Fashion Week that year. It was made entirely of recycled material. As her designs have grown through the years she has found a niche in avant-garde fashion with her line of parachute dresses. Most of her designs are one-of-a-kind or custom pieces. She always tries to make things unique and fun. Some of her proudest accomplishments have been having three parachute dresses featured in Basic Magazine as well as having designs at a style house in Los Angeles. This year she will be entering a new wearable art piece in the World of Wearable Art competition in New Zealand. Heather has many goals and accomplishments for the next five years, like working as a costume designer in Theater, TV, and Film. She also hopes to collaborate with magazines on future editorial pieces. Her love for wearable art and avant-garde will always play a part in whatever the future may hold.

The (AMFA) Australian Modelling & Fashion Awards brought together the modelling and fashion industry last December 2020 at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel.

Here’s an exclusive look at the Pacific International Runway collection by Lepou, Kovie Richardson, and Ikii Haangana at the 2020 Australian Modelling and Fashion Awards.

Rising Star Spotlight: Introducing Emerging Designer Cristy Thapa

Cristy Thapa is currently on the verge of launching a fashion website and her fashion line. This is the latest in a long line of accomplishments from this talented woman. For example, she is a registered nurse, she has won several titles such as Ms. International Beauty Ambassador 2018, Ms. Australia International 2018, Ms. Charity International 2019, and Ms. Australia United Nations 2019 and she has also helped design outfits for multiple fashion shoots. She is the first Nepalese who has represented Australia in an international platform not only once but twice. Let’s take a closer look at this inspiring woman to find out what attracted her to the fashion industry.

She initially began in fashion by working as a creative director in various fashion shows. This meant that she was responsible for making decisions about the kind of clothes that would appear in the show. Cristy thoroughly enjoyed this experience as well as being able to meet a range of new people. Being a creative director also exposed her to a wide range of new opportunities. Because of this experience she was able to work with a popular fashion designer in her logbook shoot. Cristy loved this memorable experience, as she got an even deeper insight into how the fashion industry works.

One of the most important things that Cristy learned is the way that people are affected by fashion. She believes that the type of clothes people wear will have a big impact on both the personal and professional aspects of their lives. This is partly what has inspired her to become a fashion blogger and designer. Cristy derives a lot of happiness from experimenting with different fabrics and color choices. She discovered this passion early, dreaming of owning her fashion line when she was in high school. Through years of work, she has been able to start achieving this dream.

Cristy actually has big dreams for the future. First, she is planning to launch her website, (www.thearcreations.com) soon. Through this site, she plans to report on the latest news and events from the fashion industry. By bringing her unique perspective to these events, she’ll help people get interested in this field. She also plans to help people from underdeveloped countries better understand the fashion industry. Many of these countries make beautiful fabrics and Cristy wants to show them how to convert these fabrics into beautiful clothes. By doing this, she also hopes to make a powerful change in the lives of people in these countries. Also, she wants to start her own clothing line. Initially, she intends to focus on crafting excellent wedding gowns and eventually move on to creating high-quality men’s wear items.

Cristy wants to work for a social organisation where she can bring changes in the community. She wants to be a role model and a successful entrepreneur who can be the source of inspiration for existing people. She also wants to serve the community and be the voice of the underprivileged – she is definitely someone to watch out for in the future. So, keep your eyes open for Cristy Thapa as she continues to make an impact in the fashion industry.
