I'm really excited to announce that my jewelry is going to be featured in a fashion show tomorrow! ( Tuesday, July 26th. ) I'll be sharing the runway with a few other fashion and jewelry designers including the wonderful women from Nakate! I got a tweet from the ladies over at Nakate letting me know they were in the show too and I got really excited. My friend Margaret has told me about them before and I think their mission is really beautiful. Their project is designed around aiding and empowering women in Africa, helping selling the women's own personal jewelry designs here in the US to raise money for them.
The Alive Fashion Show has it's own mission too. A portion of all of the proceeds, and a portion of what we designers make from the show, will go towards such causes as World Relief and the YWCA's Dress for Success Seattle. The event will not only have a fashion show but a fusion of theatre, art, photography, and music by my good friend Zach Fleury! Zach is the bassist in Hot Bodies in Motion and is working on his solo album right now. He's ridiculously talented, let me tell ya.
The event is at 7pm on Tuesday, July 26th at 415 Westlake Ave in Seattle, WA.
You can purchase tickets online at Brown Paper Tickets.
Hope to see a few of you there!
