WOOOHOOO!

So as I mentioned on Tuesday, my friend Barbara was in Charleston Fashion Week's Emerging Designer competition! Well, she was one of three designers chosen to compete in the next phase of the competition! (wooohoooooo!)

Right now, Barbara is busy designing and sewing an haute couture piece made from men's white oxford shirts that is an 'ode' to Alexander McQueen. It is a Project Runway type task... They were given 30 minutes to sketch, a $100 fabric budget and 3 days to complete their piece! The three designers will debut their piece at CFW's finale on Saturday night!

I am so proud of Barbara and honored to call her my friend!

Check out this write up in Charleston's City Paper about the Emerging Designer competition.... Especially the part of Barbara!
