Sorry to bother you on a busy Saturday. Just wanted to catch up with you about the second Wearable Art Runway show. In addition to the stuff already out there…(attached press release from July and poster), there’s a lot of exciting news including that I just found out that your lovely Sista is making a piece for the runway, how exciting!!! Also we have received media endorsement from both North Shore Magazine and Art New England and that we are officially part of Boston Fashion Week – just what we need to bring people to our great arts destination. Since there is so much going on, I didn’t know if you would be up to do a video with a few folks from the committee and/or artists – or if you would rather just post….anyway – for those who want a table or good seat, things are really starting to move, so we want to be sure they buy their tickets here: http://celebratewearableart2013.eventbrite.com
Here are a few updates since the press release….
We have some incredible artists making pieces for the runway – an impressive group of Manchester High School students and their leader, Marion Powers, alumni of Montserrat Janet Souza & Blessing Mazarura as well as the current sculpture class led by Marilu Swett making pieces for the runway. We are welcoming back Jen Greeke and Shalyn Webber with their new collections, and Alyssa Fishendon from MassArt!
We have visiting artists from New York City – couture designer, Jane Wilson Marquis and jewelry artist Julia Dusman and Claudia Brahms and Suzanne MacFadyen of Maine – collaborating with Camilla.
Among our special art pieces on the runway will be a much anticipated look from Sage Florist, a creation from Sista Felicia, bikinis from Gus & Francesca Alba, and something to WOW us from Lori Ireland, a winner of the Wearable Art World show in New Zealand.
