Recently I was asked to use my clothes for a fashion shoot for Spokane CDA Woman Magazine. The magazine has a regular fashion section that features local stores and designers. For the September issue my designs were photographed and it is a great honor to be featured on the cover. That was an unexpected little perk. Since then Some people have taken notice. I received a great complimentary critique from William Maltese who is a co-host at No Boundaries Radio Show. Thanks again William.
Dress: Rouched, stretch velvet with lycra lining and crinkle georgette base, $575
Jennifer Harvey took the photo’s, and as always her photography is par excellence! Alexandra Talbot is the model and while she is young (compared to me), she is advancing in her modeling by leaps and bounds. I do hope this girl gets a big break in the modeling field. And Annika Fairbanks is only in the area for a while but I am so glad to have met her and been a party to her abilities in make-up design. Not only is she fast and efficient but pleasant to be around. That is not always the case in this industry. I am so lucky to have met the people I have and have been blessed by their professionalism, and willingness to give their all for a project.
Belt: hand painted Snake skin with custom metal accents. $140
Jacket: Wool Melton lined with a quilted cotton. Custom Metal button on front and sleeves. $750
These clothes are unique in that, one, they are limited editions and two, in ordering these items they are custom fit to the wearer in the color that best suits the individual. A True couture garment.
