Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
So proud of my final creations! It was a hard road, but for my first go at it I think I did pretty well. I was very proud and wouldn’t mind doing it again. It was all worth it, the drama, the hard work, the re-doing, to see it come down the runway.
My models getting their hair and makeup done before the big show!
My red dress, and recycled dress girls getting ready for dress rehearsal. ( had to add an extra foot onto the red dress, and I’m praying the paper skirt stays together). Fingers crossed :)
This is the hairpiece being used for my recycled dress, and the floral spirals Sarah and I made for fixing the size of the belt. Quick thinking Sarah<3
Seam ripping is a pain in the butt! But so worth it in the end! I added these gold studs around the neckline to add a little pizazz to the dress. It gave a little Grecian feel to it.
On Friday, Feb. 3, MD Anderson employees walked the runway for heart health as they helped kick off February’s nationwide Go Red for Women campaign. This was there simple, but very fun runway show to show their support.
This was me when trying to choose a fabric for my red dress! It was important to find a red knit that had a nice look to it and also stretched in both directions. Sewing jersey- not the easiest thing- but I guess it’s a good learning experience.
