Fashion that Heals!

I’m so excited to be featured at Tri City’s Fashion Show “Fashion that Heals!” on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa.

Proceeds from this upscale fashion show will benefit women’s heart health programs at Tri-City Medical Center. Last year’s second annual event helped fund $350,000 in the latest digital mammography equipment. Since its inception, Tri-City Hospital Foundation has funded over $43 million dollars to support Tri-City Medical Center.

My couture aprons will be on display and my couture dress will be the finale!!

Hayley in Wonderland Celebrating her 21st Birthday

Marleyanne requested a custom Alice in Wonderland to celebrate her daughter, Hayley’s 21st Birthday!!  What a special lady and a treat for me to design this one of a kind, unique custom crown.  I truly enjoyed coloring, creating and adding exceptional details.  I got lost in the rabbit hole in my own creativity!! 

I love the greens and tinting all the images with glitter, paints and embellishments!

  This is the perfect crown to wear out on the town, wandering through gardens or slipping into the rabbit hole.

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
