The next Clash Fashion Show is right around the corner, April 24th at 7pm.
I would like to celebrate a few of the other designers that will be showcased in the Spring Clash Fashion Show.
Anna says,”I started making clothes last year after Mary Katherine encouraged me to try something new. This year has been incredible for me as I have stepped into the uncomfortable and taken my art into the textile world. All my designs are original and I draft every pattern by hand. Geometry has finally come in handy! I am now a RAW artist and a regular at the Clash shows. My style is full of pattern and color and classic silhouettes with some peek-a-boo skin. Find me on Facebook and Instagram @GoneBanAnnas.”
Andrea says, “I make party dresses with designs influenced by the styles and designers of the 1940s and 1950s.”
Jacobee says, “As a dancer and choreographer, I started making my own costumes out of necessity. Soon I realized I loved designing the overall look of my pieces as much as choosing the music and movement. For me, fashion is about storytelling, so every piece I make from costumes to street fashion is inspired by dance and theater. I named my line The Rose and Thorn because I love pairing delicate details with edgy, industrial materials as well as mixing patterns, color and textures.” Facebook: Jacobee Rose Buchanan Designs Instagram: JacobeeRoseMakesClothes
Mary puts on the show and owns a wonderful shop in the heart of the Oregon District. These photos are by Brian Mikulski.
I want to take a second to brag about Amber Walker as she was one of our students at Sew Dayton in 2014 and she loved sewing so much that she interns at our shop and makes wonderful designs. Amber is an up and coming designer who is currently in high school. She has won awards for her artwork and even one of her designs. We are so proud of her.
Nic says, “I’ve always aspired to design my own clothing. I was an art major through college, and had to pass on an offer for an internship with Adidas when I found out I was going to be a father. I got into the business world out of school. After 5 years of being in the business world, and my brother passing away this past September, I decided life is too short to not do what we enjoy. I started my LLC and began designing my own apparel.”
