Fashion Show Highlights

Backstage at the fashion show, we were all admiring the fantastic woven creations. Here is Daryl Lancaster wearing her evening gown--stunning!

This girl was a student at the college, helping with the lighting. They convinced her to model a piece titled "warrior princess", it's handwoven armor. I thought she pulled it off wonderfully.

A handwoven cape--looks so warm and elegant. This lovely model wove it herself.

Me in my skirt. After the fashion show, there was a reception in the foyer outside. I was bombarded by people admiring my skirt and asking questions about it. The most frequent comment was something like, "It just flows so well" or "I love how it drapes".

Here is an upclose view that shows the iridescent fabric better. You can read more about how I made it here.

The best part about the fashion show was getting compliments from famous weavers. I don't mean to brag, but I was floored that women who I've admired immensely were so excited about something I made.

Oh... and I won first place too, that was unexpected!
