I think a resourceful and tactful way to launch your career as a debut designer is by creating custom design pieces for musicians, artists, and notable celebrities. I am loving both Christian Joy and Brian Lichtenberg pieces. They are probably my two favorite designers right now as far as costume design goes. It's sparkly, colorful, and stretchy. Karen O. for Christian Joy! M.I.A. for Brian L. Pick your poison, but I love them both.
