Dear All,

This weekend was the awesome success of the Fortune Favours, and newest works of the Stevania Series, for the Fashion Show at the Spring Gala.  And upcoming the great profile piece in Design & Living Magazine, more events and projects, all before my trip to Italy for research.
Enjoy some photos from the fashion show, and links to articles, and the start of a great sunny summer!

Fashion Show at the Plains Art Museum
The fashion show at the Spring Gala of the Plains Art Museum had about 1,000 people!  Wow!  There are so many people involved in the success of the fashion show- from models, to stylists, museum crew, committees, the dj, and more.  And the one thousand people that watched, clapped and cheered on the models and celebrated the works.  It was an unforgettable evening with a great crew.
In this email are 2 behind the scenes photo of the great crew of models.  On my facebook page are the full set of behind the scenes photos.

Profile story in Home & Living Magazine
The May/June 2013 issue of Design & Living Magazine there is an engaging story of the leathers .  Amanda Ahrenholz has written a fun profile piece, with photos by J. Alan.  I am very excited for it! Thanks to both of them for a fun experience.

The Greenline, Revisits
Ideas for The Greenline, Revisits (continuing the research of the series) are underway.  For those that may not have seen the great works (and photo by Yvonne Denault), at the end of the email is one photograph of the crew wearing the Greenline, Garden Party Series from May 2012. Over the next few months I am looking at ideas for new directions with these works.  If you have thoughts to add to the pool- let me know!

Leather Cuffs with Braille for the CSA for The Arts Partnership
On Tuesday, 7 May 2013, the Arts Partnership had its first (of three) CSA events.  Proudly, I was selected as an artist for this event with works of the Leather Cuffs.  A photo of one of the leather cuffs is at the end of this email.

The Fortune Favours Leather Series focus on wearable leather artworks.  For the CSA creations of wearable leatherworks which wrap around a wrist with braille.

The rivets spell out words in braille.  Together, the words are all part of a piece of inspirational literature written by Myrna Hoekstra titled “Choose to Be One”.

When you run your fingers over it, you feel the texture on your finger as well as on the skin where the bottom of the rivets are, reminding one of the words on the piece.  Words or phrases of inspiration, the wearable leather designs encourages sharing of the works between people, exchanging words and therefore having a dialogue.

The experience using words coming from an inspirational local writer with only the original designs being created an element of exclusivity and pride for the wearer of the design.  The soft leather wears well, softening even more with the human contact and experience of the piece.

With my want to create designs which utilize a variety of my knowledge and visions, Fortune Favours explores looking at innovative approaches to chronicling life through wearable arts.

For ordering your own leather cuff with a quote in braille of your own choice, please contact me.

Italy Travels for June 2013
For those people that are ordering leathers for their riding season or their summer leathers or their own original collections- I am happy to say that my upcoming trip to Italy is already inspiring some great design even before I arrive.  I will be spending 2 weeks in June traveling back to NYC, then Italy (Rome and Palermo) and then Amsterdam.  The ideas for leather fashions and other Green works, food works and mostly a combination of them all are all in mind

Ordering your own designs
With the start of riding season and summer evenings, feel free to contact me for your own investment into your own leather for your collections.

The pieces are custom fit with each body painting being uniquely designed for the wearer.  Details of the design are created with the dialogues of people involved.  The beauty of each design includes the details and feelings of the pieces which are essential at heart.  They are as soft and comfortable as another layer of skin.

Please feel free contact me with any questions, or to order your unique leather design.
