Parris Harris :

When did you show at Raw?

Dane Lenon :

I have had the honor and pleasure to debut BOTH Long Beach Locations. May 21st 2009, and September 24th 2009.



Parris Harris :

Tell me about your Raw fashion show experiences?

Dane Lenon :

My first Raw fashion show was very thrilling, because it was my first collection of this year. I was very anxious to see how people were going to respond to the pieces from this line. My second show was just as exciting because I was able ease right into things…I was able to enjoy everything.



Parris Harris :

Why should you win 2009 the “Raw" fashion designer of the year award?

Dane Lenon :

I should win because as an artist my only goal ever is to express my creativity and have people appreciate it. I am not a fad or a gimmick; I try to make my work as original and innovative as possible.




Parris Harris :

What will happen if you win the “RAW“ Fashion award? What will you do with it? Where will u keep it?

Dane Lenon :

If I were to win the “RAW” fashion award I probably glow with humble pride. Like literally glow, and call my mom then I will probably take facebook pictures with it. After the celebration is over I would take all this positive energy and throw into my next collection. It’s home will go on a shelf on my inspiration wall.



Parris Harris :


Why should designers show at"RAW"?

Dane Lenon :

It is a chance to intimately show your collection and collaborate with genuine artists.  Every opportunity opens a door; you never know who is going to be there or who you are going to meet. The real question is “Why SHOULDN’T designers show at ‘RAW?’ … There will not be an answer to that


 

Parris Harris :

How RAW is your clothing ?
 

Dane Lenon :

Oh its raw-vicious… not ”licious” because I am not glam fab like that. But RAW-VICIOUS! I enjoy when fashion gets a little dark, a little ugly, and a little RAW!
