I have been working in home decor and clothing accessories for some time now. I have in the past created mostly fashion. My current location is not that easy to market interesting clothing a a large scale so I have unconsciously limited my clothing design in the last few years. Last month I had the opportunity to take part in a runway fashion show for a local Arts and Culture magazine “Portfolio Weekly.”
I finally have some photos from the show. The orange piece is a tunic of shibori dyed silk, with a silk tank, and wide leg linen pants. The jewelry is from my friend and amazing jewelry designer Barbara Hart.
The next silhouette is a kimono type coat of hand painted silk, with crop blue pants and silk tank. The coat came out so well. It started from a large piece of silk that was painted with an Asian inspiration, for a wall hanging. I decided to cut it up for this coat and am so pleased how the design placement worked on the kimono. The whole look kind of reminds me of the 40s-50s Hollywood.
This the first time I was able to see my clothing on the runway, the models did a great job.
