The Art of Fashion

A big thank you to everyone who came out Monday night to the Art of Fashion. The fashion marketing students from The Art Institute of Raleigh/ Durham put in a lot of hard work and did an excellent job organizing the event. The show was a lot of fun, there was a great turn out, and together we raised over $5,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. There were ten local jewelry designers, working in a variety of styles and using a various materials. Everything from metalwork, to found objects, to vintage textiles. We each had our own booth to display our work and a model to show off our designs (and keep us company.) You can see my lovely model, Danielle, above.
The show was held at Marigold Parlour, which in addition to talented stylists, boasts amazing decor. The salon is right up my alley, a combination of both modern and antique elements. My favorite part is probably the installation of vintage hair dryers hanging from the ceiling.
I also love the ceramic deer head mounted behind the front desk and the fabulously creepy image of the woman with the marigolds protruding from the top of her head.Somehow I managed to fit almost everything on a small table. I saved a lot of space by using these ring trays. I wasn't able to use the large shipping tags that I normally use on the rings but I do like the streamlined look and may stick with it go forward.
Your next chance to catch up with me is April 17 & 18 at the Durham Art Walk. My booth will be located in Adaron Hall in the Durham Arts Council building. For more information on parking, shuttle service, and art walk sites, go here.
