A friend of mine from High School has a clothing line called R.A.W. designs. (http://www.facebook.com/RudeGalRachel) She recently asked me if I would be interested in modeling one of her beautifully handcrafted outfits that she made to be shown off in a fashion show for the 11th annual Minnesota Tile Festival, where people come to meet more than 40 of the most talented American handmade tile and mosaic artists in the country.
The fashion show was a great way to let others see what local fashion designers could create with handmade tile and fabric. It was a really fun experience, I am glad that she asked me to be a part of her creative thinking.
Rachel and I participated in this unique fashion show outside in Mpls. today. The weather was perfect for the event which was put on by the Handmade Tile Association (www.handmadetileassociation.org) at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis.
