Mark it on your calendar…Our yearly fashion show for the Lexington Fashion Collaborative will be held on May 28th this year! Now in it’s third year, The Future of Fashion 3 will be held at Buster’s, a music venue in Lexington, KY. It will be an event that lasts most of the day, with booths for vendors and local boutiques, and separate afternoon runway shows especially for accessory and children’s designers to show their work.

This past Sunday, each designer who is participating in the show was asked to provide one outfit to be modeled for the poster and other promotional materials for the show. I’m sharing with you some behind-the-scenes photos, some of which feature the lovely Samantha, who modeled my dress made from vinyl records. The electric blue skirt is made from part of my neighbor’s trampoline, which was headed to the curb. You may also recognize her necklace, which I crafted from pop tabs and silver plastic.

Each year, this show gets bigger and better… with more and more people involved… and so many designers, engineers, photographers, hair and makeup specialists, stylists, and coordinators sharing their talents. I’d better go get to work!
