"I Make. You Wear It." is an innovative fashion venture that touched my heart. I Make. You Wear It started in August 2010 when Rachel Burke started making dresses every Saturday night for 20 consecutive weeks. Through this endeavor She raised over $5,000 for the charity NAPCAN: preventing child abuse.

On April 29th 2011, she took this concept one step further and, started "I Make My Day". She has been making dresses from scratch every day, and plans to do so for an entire year. Rachel is utilizing her fashion design skills, once again, to help raise money for the Starlight Children Foundation. Click here to follow her on this journey.

As you can see her dresses are absolutely beautiful and, I am definitely no the only one who thinks so. Rachel received numerous requests for custom made dresses. So in September 2010 she launched her own label called Yellowcake. This timeless collection, "seeks to dress girls in the frocks of their dreams drawing upon literary and childhood experiences to inspire one-of-a-kind creations". Ahh I want one!!
