Join the Two Writing Teachers
for theTuesday Slice of Life Challenge
Fashion and Friends
On Saturday morning, Natalie and I both woke up early...I wrote my weekly celebration and we lazed around the house until about 8:30. Then, we got dressed and ready for our Fashion and Friends Escapade! Natalie was invited to be model for a fashion student's line of kids clothes at the Kent State School of Fashion Design and Merchandising. Wow! How fun could this be?
Natalie had a ball playing around and being silly with her friend Justin while they were being fitted. She tried on a dress with leggings, a shirt, jacket and pants, and then another dress with a jacket. The clothes still need trimmed and hemmed but they are almost finished. I wished I'd taken pictures of all of the outfits but I did capture at least one-here's a picture of the two of them with the clothes they will model.
I'm so excited to see how all the kids look for the photo shoot that takes place in a few weeks. I'm sure all of the little kids will look adorable. The student is working to create clothes that kids are able to put on without adult help. In my mind, that's a great idea! It was neat to see how she mixed the colors and fabrics together to create these outfits. I'm constantly in awe of how designers can put things together and come up with something from nothing by starting out with drawings and bolts of fabric.
After we were done with the fitting, our escapade ended with breakfast at Dunkin Donuts! A sweet way to finish up our exciting morning adventure.
To be continued...Friends and Fashion II around the end of the month.
