This past Sunday was the reveal of the, Destined By Design: A Celebration Of African American Fashion & Design, exhibit.
The exhibit celebrated Texas, black designers…all women. I was shocked, honored and over the moon to be asked to make a dress. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to get a Fashion Not Fear dress on one of those mannequins.
The event was only two hours long but it seemed like a worldwind because of alot of it was new to me. Mainly, because that day was full of a lot of firsts for me.
It was the first time that my mom and some of my other family members got a chance to see my work in person.
It was my first tome making a cocktail dress (which is my new favorite thing to make now.)
It was also the first time I got a chance to be on a panel and speak in front of a lot of people.
I will tell you all about that later. For now, here is a peak at the exhibit.
I’m only giving you sneak because I REALLY want you to go check it out in person (if you can). Can you guess which one is Fashion Not Fear??
The installation will be up until February 29, 2020 at UTSA Institute Of Texan Cultures 801 E Cesar E Chavez Blvd San Antonio, Texas.
Be sure to tag me in your pics @bluelabelsboutique, I would love to hear your thoughts on the dress. It includes some great designers of fashion, jewelry, even quilts. You won’t regret going to check it out. Trust me.
Will you be able to check it out? Did you see anything you liked?? Let me know in the comments
Stay Fearless 💋
