Making Headbands and Accessories!

So I've been working on some headbands and belts made with fabrics not only from Africa, but all around the world.
Being a crazy travel addict one thing I love to collect as souvenirs is fabric!
Whenever my friends or family travel it's something they always bring back for me as well ;) So all these accessories I'm making are made up of these fabrics!
I also have millions of beads, rhinestones, crystals, and sequins from my belly dancing days so expect some colorful and sparkly creations!!
Here's a couple pictures as a sneak peak.... :)

Fashion is lovely but I want to teach

I'm still accepting commisions for dress peices but I've currently been very involved in a new project....
take a look:

I'm opening a studio (expect it this summer) that will teach people creative skills, and host classes where you can learn to make a variety of projects (clothing, jewelry, organisers for home) You'll learn how to paint, sew, draw, aaaand create. ;)

Article from Ottawa Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011

Here is an article I found about my show for Spring/Summer 2011!
The show went on in October, I had about 17 peices,
The models were great and the new venue is gorgeous, but unfortunately there wasn't much organisation and planning done for the backstage area....
The show still managed to be a success, after alot of steaming, hurriedly dressing models, and getting them onstage I felt so good seeing the girls walking my peices down the runway, I was proud!

So here is the article.

and here are a few photos,
enjoy ;)
