Earlier this year I had the great pleasure of meeting the talented singer/songwriter Jenn Logue. We actually met at the after-party for Malan's fashion show while waiting at the bar. Actually, she first started talking to my mom, whom I left at the bar to go say hi to someone else. (I know, I'm horrible!) When I came back we all started chatting because my mom had discovered that Jenn ALSO was originally from Pennsylvania. I gave her my info and told her to call me if I could ever make her anything to wear. I talked with her shortly after that and loaned her several items to use for a photoshoot. I haven't seen the photos from that yet, but when I do I'll post some here.
Jenn just recently had a party for the release of her new EP. The party was at Mad 46, on the roof of the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan. It was a fantastic evening, and I was ecstatic to have been able to make the dress that Jenn wore to the event. She and I went fabric shopping, and I let her pick out what she wanted, while offering my opinion when needed. The dress is made from a gorgeous royal blue silk charmeuse and a printed silk chiffon. Jenn wanted something glamorous, young, fun and pretty, but also something she could move easily in while playing. Since we had very minimal time to complete the dress, and only time for one fitting, I decided to go with a basic halter top dress, and let the fabric speak for itself.
Jenn's latest release is called the "Pretty EP" You can check it out on her myspace, facebook, or website. She's going to be starting a US and European tour very soon, so be sure to check her out if she comes to your town, she's fantastic!
