Project Runway Bradon McDonald at Mesa

Yesterday, Bradon McDonald spoke at Mesa College in a joint venture between the San Diego Chapter of the American Sewing Guild and the Fashion Program at Mesa.
Bradon was a finalist in Season 12 of Project Runway.

He brought with him, garments from his final collection at FIDM in Los Angeles. He is an amazing speaker, and his message to our students was encouraging, realistic, and inspiring.

Here I am with Bradon, and below that the link to his runway show at FIDM where he showcased the clothing he brought to share with us.

Creative Hardware

While on retreat with our New Mexico group for this year's Garment Designer workshop, I came across some unique hardware-encrusted items. I am particularly interested as I've been collecting door hardware for a few years now, from various cities and countries.

These get the creative juices flowing.
