I wanted to share this photo with you … it was taken by Chris Reynolds during the Boomslang music festival in Lexington KY, October 10th. It was cold outside that weekend, but we had so much fun! The carnival-themed activities included a fashion show featuring several local desingers, and our lovely Lauren here is wearing an outfit of mine made from various repurposed fabrics and materials.

Also, the fashion show at the Winchester Opera House Gallery last weekend was amazing!! I was honored to have my brother as one of the models, and he wore a coat made from the same camping tent fabrics that I used several months ago to make a women’s dress. I hope to have some photos of this event soon. Everyone looked AMAZING and I can’t wait for the next time–I would love to make it an annual event!

October 23rd I also submitted a skirt made from repurposed materials to the “Runway for the Cure” show sponsored by Skirt! Magazine in Lexington KY. I wish I could have been there to see my skirt in action… they had ten local business men volunteer to wear the skirts on the runway, and then each was auctioned to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation. I know I saw photos of this event online somewhere, so if I can find them again, I’ll post it here later on.
