The Golden Hanger Awards
Tonight at the Town & Country Resort, Fashion Careers College hosts the Golden Hanger Awards, featuring student designer collections, with all proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish Foundation. This year, Jeffrey of Junc Boutique (a Grove neighbor) will be showing his collection. We've seen bits and pieces of it from conception to construction and we are all so excited. I've mentioned before how talented he is, and tonight is a launching pad for him. Our own judi patuti taught him to sew last year. I'm pretty sure he completes his FCC program in December. And who knows where he will be next year.
Val Hebert will be among the fashion vendors at the show displaying her felted creations which include a beautiful array of earrings, scarves and perhaps some of her popular handbags made from repurposed sweaters. I taught Val to knit 6 years ago and she has had a love affair with fibers ever since. She is an amazing artist and it is always wonderful to see her newest creations. So we are all looking forward to an exciting evening. Hoping to get some good pictures to share with you all.
