The first show was a fundraiser for seArts in Gloucester. I was a huge success and seArts had a great turnout. Then last Thursday, Rising Design had our big show for Boston Fashion Week at the Liberty Hotel as part of their "Fashionably Late" series!
Here are a few photos of the fabulous collections! (photos by Will Mann)
|Pretty Thoughts by Erica Templeman "Equinox Collection." Made entirely of latex!|
|Sarka's Collection by Jen Griffith "Playdates Collection." Vintage inspired!|
|Margaret Lawrence's evening gown, lovely!|
|Felicia Verry Mota's gown, I seriously want it...|
|Ray Rodriguez "Hanes Collection" YSL inspired made out of re-purposed Tshirts!|
|Shalyn Webber "Lichen Collection" inspired by Victorian cemeteries.|
Now technically all of these collections can be considered Eco-friendly fashion through my rules, because they are produced by hand in the USA. However Jen's collection used vintage and re-purposed fabrics, and Ray's was created entirely from re-purposed Hanes Tshirts. So those two collections deserve special recognition!
Overall the show was a huge success, however I have to say I'm relieved it's over and I'm looking forward to having more free time. And even though I haven't been writing, I've come up with a bunch of blog topics to write about, so stay tuned!
