I'm still ironing out all the finer points but from pretty much now onwards the label I was previously operating under "SERENA van der WOODSEN" is no more and I'll now work under my own name, Charlotte Webb.
When I originally chose the name Serena van der Woodsen in late 2007 it was meerly meant to be an alias from under which I could sell the leggings, bike shorts and scrunchies I'd begun making. At the time Gossip Girl was only really known about in Australia by the 13-year-old girls that had read the books (which I had always been repelled by in book stores...) and those like myself that had been introduced to it on youtube by friends who were more knowledgeable about US pay TV. So for quite a few months it was a fairly safe working title but as the show came out on Foxtel here and I have started gaining small bits of exposure here in various things. Although I'm sure the big wigs over at CW network have much more important things to worry about than some minute label on the other side of the world that they've most definately never heard of. However, even the possibility of being sued really isn't really my idea of a good time so I figure it's better to be safe than sorry.
There are a few things in that are coming up that will still have the name SERENA van der WOODSEN but I'll be letting you know more about those as they appear.
In the meantime, I have entered the General Pants Bubble Competition and I need all the help I can get so it would be much appreciated if you could help a sista out and vote for me.
Its not exactly something you'd pop down to the supermarket in but maybe if you lived on Venus in the seventies...
I'll post some more pictures from the ecclectic evening that was Fashion Aid soon as well.
