Haute Couture Fashion Show
Today I participated in a fund raiser fashion show for a club I am in called Haute Couture. We have monthly meetings with speakers on a wide range of topics of interest to fashion sewers. We also have workshops to learn new techniques and field trips to places of interest to the group (recently the Yves St. Laurent show in San Francisco). Today was the fashion show. Members model garments they have made for themselves or if made for someone else, that person may model it. This includes grandchildren or daughters. One of our members is a male costumer who outfitted several members with costumes and modeled a bunny costume himself.
I modeled 4 outfits. Here are a few shots. I didn't get all the images I wanted as I had handed my camera to someone unfamiliar with it and she had some trouble. But I'm happy to get some that represent the scene. The shot with me in a black top at the front of a group shows six of us modeling our "Instant Gratification" top that so many ladies got excited about at our sewing retreat last June. By chance I had worn my original orange top on the first day of the week retreat and by the last day 18 or 20 had been sewn, all by tracing around my original garment.
