Her dress is an assymetrical cut with the bottom out of a brocade tapestry in gold, pink, blue with pearls draped as an accent.. The top is a bunch of arch-shapes in burgundy velvet with gold embroidery thread in a running-stitch and applied to a cotton bodice. At the last minute backstage she added a little extra piece of material on the high side of the skirt because the model didn't have all sheer pantyhose.

Now, my pix don't do justice to their respective haute couture, in part because these girls were so nervous they just strutted down the catwalk hardly taking the time to pause for pictures. And in part because my camera took a second or two to focus after each pic. So I had to judiciously snap what I could, when I could, from my not-so-great vantage point.

So glad to have had the occasion to see my girl's first fashion show and I'm looking forward to seeing many more. She's going into Theater and Costume Design so I'm sure we'll be seeing her work in future plays, musicals and wherever they wear costumes. I may be biased since I'm her Mom, but I seriously feel that she's destined for a great future. You Go Girl!
