A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to a presentation put together by Jay Nicholas Sario. He gave us an inside look on his experience on Project Runway. He also talked about how he went to Honolulu Community college and ended up dropping out and moving to San Francisco. This man is so talented, his sketches were said to be up to par with those of students at Parsons-Tim Gunn. He said that the summer before his freshman year of high school in the Philippines, all he did was sketch. He ended up with over 800 sketches. He also made all of the prom dresses for girls at his school his junior and senior year. We also got a sneak peak at his Spring '11 collection that he will be showing in Portland sometime in October. I got up close and personal with his pieces, and man they were so well made. He inspired me to practice sketching even more. He is now trying to get his line produced and sold at a retailer. But he mentioned that he doesnt want to mass produce his pieces. He wants them to be cherished. I really wanted to buy that grey jacket off the dress form. I cant wait until his pieces are up for sale.
