Hello outsourcing!

I realized i havent updated in a while. I blame reality tv and my job.

alot has been going on these past few months, so im going to take the time to catch you up to speed and lay the foundation for whats ahead.

So, as some of you know, during the last GFW I announced I was going to be partnering with 330 couture, a local boutique, to create our own collection and help pave the way for future designers. Im happy to report our first collaborative collection was a success and there are going to be many more together, as well as additional projects. I have started the "GainesvilleFashionCollective" as a way for all of the people in the industry in gainesville to network abilities and use it to gain employment with one another( also, successful).

now, im moving into china. ive met a young lady who is acting as the liazon for all of my clothing in china. its amazingly exciting, and exhausting at the same time. if youve ever thought making clothes was easy, imagine explaining to someone who doesnt speak the same language as you or understand your slang. I cant be like " put that little ruffly thing over there" translate isnt gonna help you.

Im also gonna be rebranding all of the bobbyk info in the next few months. the website, my image. its time to grow up.

obligatory high school slam

Ugh, my high school reunion is around the corner.

I had truly waited for this day to come, so that I could show up see everyone married, fat, etc. Recently, only due to the onset of this horrific event did I begin to do my research. my romy and michelle moment was at hand.

I hated high school. Passionately. I was bullied within an inch of my life, from everyone. I attempted to find solice within each specific group, but never truly found a niche. Even the gay kids at my high school sucked and made my life a living hell.

So here we are 10 years later. Im over it in the way that it doesnt affect me, but not in the way that ill forget it. Im successful, happy, and doing what i love, so how could i hate these people that have steeped and settled into mediocrity so fitting, it was like they invented middle class!! I want to go to show people that I survived and actually did what i wanted despite their past behavior, and on the other side of the coin I want them to see me succeed from afar and feel the loss of not being apart of my life.

Oh well. I guess ill just have to wait.

SO, i find myself in this familiar place once again.

Im at a high point in my career, which is basically what im focused on 24/7, and someone, as usual, very close to me, decides to try and stop me.


I design with the spirit of 1000 vikings, a drag queen, and 4 obese jazz singers.


also, i have like 80 looks im gonna be posting at some point soon. VOTE on the best!!

Im sorry, but Robyns " bodytalk" series are by far some of the best pop music in the past 10 years.

Well, its been awhile since ive posted, so lets see....

I just had two really successful shows, one in jacksonville and one in gainesville. I won best collection at Jacksonville fashion week, which was pretty awesome. Everyone says my dresses in GFW were too short, but do you expect a party girl to wear a robe out?

I want you to check out my website in its entirety and stop by the store!! pick up a shirt, or a couture dress, whatever you like.

Ive been transitioning recently with my boyfriend just moving in. Its weird sharing your space. I have to be conscious of the fact that i leave beer cans everywhere and my sewing room tends to look like some sort of fabric genocide happened there.

I also signed a really cool deal with 330 couture to design a collection for them called 330 by bobbyk. Im pretty excited, as it will allow me to do sooo many cool things.. I know you guys will like it.more details to come soon.

well off to figure out how to organize my office....

Whats new pussycat?

So, I have a broken foot. It is obvious the universe is telling me to get some work done. Got it- loud and clear.

Im working on 2 collections right now, one for jacksonville fashion week, and one for gainesville. Id like to think they personify me- black and white. very different, polar opposites actually. i cant wait to post some of the finished garments.

I also had a great conversation with a gentleman who does private label production. Im going to start getting these things into stores before i know it. I even think im going to have some stuff to sell at my shows.

creatively, there is ALOT of great music out right now. If you didnt watch the mugler show, you missed the new lady gaga song.
