Hello, friends. Welcome to another article by me! If someone told me 2 years ago, “Hey, you’re going to be doing big things with your stickers and your project!” I’d tell that person that I want my money back—assuming it’s a psychic we are talking about here.
Lately, I have been having a lot of fun shooting and designing collections for fall, at this point in my brand I'm very confident in where I stand and where I can be, but of late I felt like I could more and pay more attention to the friends around me. That's where this spotlight comes in, in the above photo is just a teaser for the #Deezboobs collection lookbook being shot on Monday but you can see that the entire group is focused solely on the woman in the middle; Paige Bowman.
Why you ask? Because to me, this collection is what its about, the impact. Paige Bowman's mother Georgiana Bowman was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2014 and received a double mastectomy on June 13th and began her first round of chemo on July 12th of that year. She was officially cancer free in 10 months and began to reconstruction of her chest finishing with a tattoo in the following June.
I have shot plenty of people prior but when she told me this story when I was planning this collection I had no choice but to offer her the cover of the shoot, Paige's mother is EXACTLY who I am doing this collection for, not for my own personal gain but rather to impact lives that matter the most. Paige I can only imagine has been through a rough couple years and knowing she still has mother at the end of this only makes me happier to have her part of the shoot to represent the design and what it means. I can only hope seeing you guys wear these shirts and knowing that all of the donations will be donated to Breast Cancer research and centers throughout the Phoenix area will make you feel as good as I do knowing what this means to not just me, but Paige, her mother and everyone involved.
I can't wait to show you guys the results on Monday.
