May 14, 2009 @ Elevate



Parris Harris :

Tell me about your RAW fashion show experiences ?

Rochelle Carino :

My experience was amazing! My husband and I got to be featured together for the evening. His name is Chris O'Neill and he is nominated for film maker of the year, btw. Heidi is incredible and always organizes fantastic events. The event was very well put together, the crowd was pumped and we had a really great time.



Parris Harris :

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

Rochelle Carino :

I would love to win! If I do, it allows me to reach more and more people. I hope to make a difference in the world, to help change the world through fashion. I've already worked with a few charities but I want to reach more. I hope to be an inspiration to other people to always go for their dreams and never give up. I feel very blessed and I am finally living my dream. :)



Parris Harris :

What will happen if you win the "RAW" Fashion award ? What will you do with trophy. Where will you keep it?

Rochelle Carino :

I will keep it on my sewing table so that when I feel frustrated or stuck, it will remind me that I must be doing something right and everything will work out.



Parris Harris :

Parris Harris :

How RAW is your clothing ?

Rochelle Carino :

Very RAW. Everything is designed and sewn in the USA by me. Someday, I'll be able to hire a team..... I try to tell story with every piece that I make and I take pride in my work.
