When I get to share my passion for fashion with others I’m filled to the brim with joy. Each and every one of us possess a special gift and I believe with all my heart that my gift is fashion and the ability to make others feel their absolute best through clothing. Clothing is so much more than a piece of material, it’s the extension of our soul wrapped around our bodies.
This Saturday I have the privilege of teaching my first class at the Crocker Art Museum. I was approached by our Education department some months ago to teach a course on fashion to teens and I JUMPED on the opportunity! To share your passion with others, especially teens, is such a gift. I don’t want to spill too many of the details, but I will give you this: There will be a grand finale Project Runway inspired fashion show on our Teen Takeover night! I hope to see everyone at the Crocker on Thursday, April 17th at 7:30 pm. All the looks will be curated by the kids with the direction of my co-teacher Daphne and I.
Big thanks in advance to Amber of Cast Images, and Angelina of Deeda Salon for lending their expertise to the 6 week class.
It’s opportunities like these that make me realize how beautiful life really is and how lucky I am to share my passion for fashion to such eager young kids.
Here’s the link to the class for more details:
Art inspires my fashion ALL the time and will inspire the kids in the class as well. Here are a few of my favorite art inspired looks that I’ve come up with in the past:
