This is the collection I showed at Omaha Fashion Week Finale on Saturday August 27th. My fabric choices consisted of organic cotton, recycled polyester, hemp, bamboo/organic cotton jersey and featured one silk taffeta draped corset dress. I also used a green and cream stripe overlaid with blush bridal mesh. I experimented with color-blocking a "wave" print with a black recycled polyester/organic cotton twill. I used mostly vintage metal zippers and made the headbands out of Omaha sourced vintage fabrics.
Backstage we were in a beautiful room at the top of the Old Market Lofts. There were floor to ceiling windows that let in lots of natural light as we were getting ready.
My amazing hair and makeup team was lead by Rebecca Forsyth (@glamourpurveyor) of Bungalow 8. She was supported by Elliot Dougherty and Katie Hanke of Bangs. The hair was everything I wanted it to be... beautiful side buns--basically piles of curls! I had an absolute dream team and could not be happier with the results.
I have so many more surprises to share, namely my experience meeting Mondo Guerra of Project Runway Season 8 and Kat Williams of Rock N Roll Bride (the highest trafficked wedding blog in the UK)!!
