Artist Appreciation Night Displays Local Styles

What is a fashion show without fashion? And how does fashion come about without innovative artists, fashion designers, buyers, sellers and everyone in between expressing their personalities through clothing? Simple answer: It doesn’t! Especially at the 2013 Fashion Week where local designers and boutiques are offered a platform for some serious publicity. For one night, March 11, the organizers and Melissa Arens of ArtAmiss and Mayapple Salon and Boutique transformed Arsaga’s at The Depot for a special event in honor of those important players, and what a night it was! See these designs and more at this year’s Fashion Week running through Saturday.

This is Joelle’s art, Himalayan mountain shop was modeled by a totally different girl. I’m the girl in the photo, and I got my clothes in Tahiti and this is Joelle storet’s artwork.

Berkly, thanks for the information. There must have been some confusion. Were you not standing in front of a card hung on the red curtain that said Himalayan Mountain Shop? I assumed what you stood in front of represented what boutique/designer you were showcasing. Thanks again for the clarification.

I’m glad you guys got that settled, thanks Berkley and Joelle. There were a few misprints in other areas to Terrah. Maybe lets connect on details before print next time. I know things happen sometimes, i appreciate and respect EVERYONE’S hard work.

The cover online was “worked out” but the actual article’s misprinting remain all over town. The damage has already been done. Instead try to be more informed on the people involved in the project rather than focusing on someone who “seemed so busy”. Each Boutique and Designer were all in this together and well informed. I am sure someone would have willingly spoken on behalf of Mrs. Arens while she made tremendous efforts putting this event together. Many people were affected and i do hope a lesson was learned.
