This past week was a mix of a whole lot! I had my public studio showing on Friday and Saturday, A BIG THANK YOU to those who came down to support my way of life :D
Everyone who attended gave me great feedback on the work I've been doing, that meant a great deal to me!Whats a showing without beautiful friends :)
This was part of my installation for the show, I love the way it was received and cannot wait to explore more. Stay tuned for more...
This is the Julie Dress, I was inspired the other day and created this little number. Because I only made one and will only make one the dress is named after the girl who bought it :D
Immediately after the showing on Saturday I grabbed my collection and jumped in a cab to the Delta Hotel. Swish Model Management (http://www.swishmodelmanagement.com/) was hosting a fashion show in support of the Rainbow Resource Center. Swish was kind enough to ask for my collection in this VERY professional fashion show. Thank you Swish! The photo below was the finale, hence all the models on the runway at the same time.
Rory was headed to England on Sunday, so amidst the flurry of things I was doing for the show I managed to make his pair of jeans and deliver after the fashion show...As you might have guessed I didn't really get much sleep on the weekend.
I really like the two tone prairie grass stitching I did for him!
I had breakfast with my mom the other day in the Underground Cafe which is located in the Silpit building on Arthur street in the exchange district, I love the art on the walls!!! such a beautiful place, very cozy. I strongly suggest!
Its garden season and My mom and Sister above are talking about our new garden!!! It will be a raised bed because the ground in that part of my moms yard used to be a parking pad. I cannot wait to get my green thumb working hard in the vegetable garden to get the rewards of fresh organic food!
My sister made this dessert for breakfast on Sunday, It was EPIC!!!!!!
