my very first fashion show was a blast! i could not have found a better group of models. everyone was such a joy to work with. my makeup artist, ashley cantero, did such a wonderful job and she was such a sweetie. a trendy salon in town was generous enough to offer their talents. all i had to do was ask! i'm so grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with such creative and giving people. it was such a great experience. the woman who put on the fashion show, marina williams, was also the sweetest most supportive, open, friendly soul. the show was at her art gallery/vintage boutique, ArtPool. the theme is found objects, recycled/upcycled "trash" wearable art. i used thrifted necklace chains from old jewelry. i styled the models outfits with thrifted clothing and a few pieces from the models wardrobe.

i have been wanting to try to shred a t-shirt and my first two tries are a success! i think they turned out awesome :) it's a pretty painstaking process, let me tell you. but worth it in the end. i'll be uploading them for sale on my etsy site. http://myownlittleuniverse.etsy.com
