Kickstarter x Juma for New York Fashion Week

Juma is raising funds for a New York Fashion Week show through Kickstarter.

JUMA is interested in raising funds with you to produce a fashion show to be shown at New York fashion week. We are presently designing our new collection and would like to have a presentation in which we can show our line. We would like to have our show listed on the official fashion week calender and invite editors, media, stylists and other industry participants in order to gain exposure and build our fanbase offline and online.

We have experience with producing runways shows and have been designing clothing for 6 years so are confident in the execution of the project.

We are offering you our digitally printed bags, scarves, prints as well as backstage experiences in order to raise the funds required to put on this runway show for New York Fashion Week!

The project will be funded if $26,000 dollars are raised by Friday August 26, 2011 at 4pm. This dollar figure should be sobering to some designers about the costs of putting on a modest fashion show during NYFW. You can learn more and pledge for the JUMA New York Fashion Week Kickstarter project online.
