Yes, I tried and failed to make my goal to fund my collection for online retailer Zappos.com via crowd funding site Kickstarter. I had to launch the campaign during the holidays-- bad timing on my part-- but it couldn't be helped. Kickstarter was an all or nothing platform, so while I did raise funds, I got nothing. I have initiated a new campaign on Indiegogo and ask again for your support to fund my debut collection for Zappos.com. The good news: I did secure a relationship with a shipping vendor that will significantly lower my overhead (and have lowered my goal accordingly) and regardless of whether I make my goal, the funds raised will go to my collection for Zappos.com!
The perks still apply: Make a contribution starting at the $75 level, you get a hand-finished hat from my Zappos.com collection! Bespoke head wear offered at the $500 level!
I understand that not everyone wants to or can afford to make a contribution. I completely understand and I thank you anyway for your kind words of encouragement with a request to please FORWARD this campaign on to others. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
