The Sew Chic, and Famous

While I was attending the recent annual Kent State Fashion Show, I met fashion designer Tad Boetcher, who is a genius in fashion.  From the tailing, to the designs, he is amazing!  He worked for designers and brands such as Michael Kors, Billy by Bill Bass, Ellen Tracy, Magaschoni, and Dana Buchman.  While I was there, there was a interview for him.  You ready?

Q:  Tell us about your Job.
A:  As design director, I pick all the colors, prints, and trend direction and then oversee the design team to make sure the vision is consistent.

Q:  You have an unusual work week, can you elaborate?
A:  Everyday in the fashion industry is a bit hectic, but I have an unusual schedule that works with my creative needs.  I work three days a week and I stay in Manhattan those days.  Then on my days off I have a weekend home in Woodstock, New York.  That's where I have my design studio set-up.

Q:  What was your favorite memory at Kent State?
A:  My favorite memory was my senior show; I won the most photogenic collection award-the first year that award was given.  Also I was "the Artist in Residence" at Verder Hall my senior year, and I really enjoyed that.

Tad Boetcher will launch his collection in Spring '09.  Will be retailed at nationwide Dillard's and Lord & Taylor stores!  Wish you luck Tad!
