Yasmin & Crash ROCK!!

Oh YEAH!, Talk about loving your job, this week has been chaotic and crazy and So much fun!
Meeting the Chicas, Yasmin and Crash from the hit show on MUN2 titled:" The Chicas Project",
then getting to style them for their Cornyation debut as "faux royalty" in King Anchovy's Court of Runaway Projects, was intense and smooth with the help of my assistants Mari Salinas and Chip Davis. The filming crew caught all the action for the series, which will kick off the 3rd season of the show, segment director Jim Mendiola and producer Faith Radle kept us focused(Thanks). A Big shout-out to John McBurney our hair and make-up genius. There's more, just that the King William Parade is about to start and we have art exhibit opening today, TCHOTCHKES @ Capsule Gallery, so I will have more details and pics coming up.

Feel the Rhythm:WEBB2008










With the 2008 edition of the WEBB Party@ San Antonio Museum of Art, set to kick off Fiesta 2008 tomorrow, I archived some images from the last WEBB, I participated in.
That year I made clothes for the go-go dancers and had a vintage fashion show emceed by
Miss Brini Maxwell and her well to do ways. Alot of Fun and alot of hard work for a good cause,
this event benefits the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.
This year I was asked to contribute to the silent auction from local artists, I donated my original
ART OF FASHION Dress made of mesh and leather, plus a signed framed original picture of my Ballon dress circa2006.
AND I intend on documenting this for my archives and will share with my blog readers.
Miss you, Regina!

Scouting: Locales



This past weekend , I took my camera to capture the beauty and quirk this city has to offer, In the process I found myself looking at venues or public spaces as outdoor theatre, incorporating the exsisting structure/space to a more non-traditional outlet, in this case something I am familiar with in producing, such as a Fashion Show. In my process through downtown I came across the grand opening of The newly unvieled MAIN PLAZA, located in the heart of the city, right in front of San Fernando Cathederal. A fashion show there would be extraordinary, Possible? I snapped up lots of pics I even posted pictures, the dancing water, the backdrop,the vitality and sheer beauty of being able to pull this off.
Well, I just got an e-mail from the new director and let the talks begin..................
This is awesome news!

Fashion's Big names on Michigan Ave, street style non-stop, and awesome restaurants and bars.
I got a quick condensed tour of Chicago and loved it, especially the University that while I was there, They where exhibiting designs created by students.
