For those of you who know me well... I KNOW... you are shocked! Not only do I not watch television -- I don't own one! I do not read fashion magazines and certainly do not follow the current trends. I enjoy my own style.
How did this happen you ask.
Well, it all began four weeks ago when I attended Drop-in-Drawing. Half-a-dozen fashion design students from Marvel College joined us. After the drawing session, my friend Glenys and I acquainted ourselves with this creative bunch. One young man, whom we assumed attended the college, spoke with great confidence and fashion finesse. Not so, he was a tag-along boyfriend. Glenys and I were amazed! His drawings were outstanding AND he had the fashion lingo down. We asked him how he inherited this ability. He replied that Project Runway hosted by Heidi Klum taught him everything he knows about the fashion world.
Because both Glenys and I do not own a television the students had to described the reality show to us. My friend and I laughed! We decided to borrow the dvds from the library, get together on a regular basis to watch the series, learn fashion speak, eat popcorn and turn our new-found knowledge into a winter project and eventually into a body of work. (giggle... "body - of - work"!)
Surprise! There are s e v e n seasons in our public library.
That is a LOT of popcorn!
