The runway show was so much fun. Congratulations to the winners and their beautiful dresses! I didn’t place in the top three, but I did win the Most Creative award. Don’t worry, I’ll be back next year. I can’t wait!
Thought you may enjoy seeing some photos of me working on my dress. The dress began full length with a cream lace overlay and pouffy sleeves. A major disaster! I removed all of the lace, shortened the length, took in the waist and back, made it strapless, and then added satin ribbon in a random grid design. I was pleased with the end result. Oh, and a HUGE thanks to my model Yinlu who is beautiful inside and out!
This is a new organization I’m involved with. For the past two years Every Child, Inc. has sponsored Cinderella Project Runway. This is an opportunity for girls (like me!) to test their designer skills and turn a dud of a dress into a unique and gorgeous creation. The dresses are then donated to girls who can’t afford to purchase a prom dress on their own. I had a lot of fun and learned that fashion design is a lot harder than it looks.
The fashion runway show is this Saturday. Everyone is invited!
