It can happen to you

Rise up in hope all ye small town designers. I was alerted to some homegirls (ok Lansing Michigan is not quite Detroit but anyway) who have made it in a big way. Twins Shawn & Claire Buitendorp are creating costumes for Katy Perry and stuff for Betsey Johnson. DREAM JOB. Funnily enough, this all started after  they attended one of Katy's concerts and being so inspired they made her a costume with no formal design training whatsoever.  Now they are regulars on her circuit with the Sundae dress being a fave.
