This was our second year participating and we had a great partnership, SourceFour. They are a furniture showroom and also have upholsteries!!!! It all turned out great and the event was sold out!
Our outfit was called City Luxe and had three parts.
- The dress: made of upholstery, hand woven vinyl strips, and hand punched sequins.
- The Necklace: made of table hardware (Each ball was just under a pound….a very heavy necklace) and vinyl.
- The Coat: made of upholstery some of which had a Crypton backing which made it a very stiff and heavy coat.
I modeled for the second time and it was a blast. We did my hair and makeup here in the office and by 5:30 I was ready to go. We had to be dressed for pre-judging and then waited hours for the event to start. There were about 1600 people attending, and the line to get in was a few blocks long. Until next year…Our Original Sketch and concept design
