We are on the Boston Fashion Trail for Boston Fashion Week & Cape Ann hosted it’s own Fashion Tour Recently!

We had some incredible artists making pieces for the runway – an impressive group of Manchester High School students and their leader, Marion Powers, alumni of Montserrat as well as the current sculpture class led by Marilu Swett making pieces for the runway.  We are welcoming back Jen Greeke and  Shalyn Webber with their new collections, and Alyssa Fishendon from MassArt!  We have visiting artists from New York City – couture designer, Jane Wilson Marquis and jewelry artist Julia Dusman and Claudia Brahms and Suzanne MacFadyen of Maine – collaborating with Camilla.

Among our special art pieces on the runway will be a much anticipated look from Sage Florist, a creation from Sista Felicia, author of the new cookbook “Gifts of Gold” , bikinis from Gus & Francesca Alba, and something to WOW us from Lori Ireland, a winner of the Wearable Art World show in New Zealand.

Accessories  included colorful ties from Stephen Bates,  enticing hats from Lisa Pedamonte-DiPietro, and jewelry from many of our exhibiting artists.

Thanks to our amazing models:

We had many lovely local models including Miss Baylee Kirk, Lexi Orlando,  Katharine Worth-Larsen, Sarah Slifer, and Charlotte & Grace Papp (Charlotte a former Miss Massachusetts).  We will be delighted with a contingent of professional models and we have Deborah Coull’s Salon to wow us with their hair and make-up!
