BELLE AMOIRE Summer 2011

         What a Surprise!!! I am published in the Creme de la Creme of Magazines “BELLE AMOIRE  Creating Artistic clothing & Accessories on Page 147 along with Ruth Rae’s Charming Bracelets!!!!!  I am so honored not only to be included in this magazine but to be pictured among one of the best artists, Ruth Rae!! Her jewelry was featured  on the cover of Belle Amoire Jewelry, Fall   2010....THIS IS MAGICAL!!!

I embroidered these velvet dresses to wear to Musical, Wine and Gala events.  When I was a young teen growing up in Florida, my family could not afford to buy me alot of fashionable clothes.  Even at a young age I was drawn to color, luxurious fabric, ribbons, silk flowers and unique clothing.  While enjoying my grandmothers company, in Tampa, Florida,  whose artistic  home she opened up and rented out rooms to other elderly ladies, I often received the pleasure of various artistic instruction.  One of my and the ladies favorites was teaching me embroidering, tatting, crewel, knitting and fabric application.  Of course, I embellished my jeans, my jackets, shirts, aprons, hats and anything I could get my fingers on….  I must say thank you to my grandmother: Katharine Stowell and my mother: Katharine Weekly for allowing me to explore and flourish. 

These dresses are a Thank you to both of them… with love and honor……Trish
