It was another successful party at the Textile Arts Center September 17th.  So successful that the guests began to encircle the Raya Brass Band so that they couldn’t leave the venue and stop playing their feet-stepping music.

The exhibition is beautiful, and if you were unable to view all the pieces you should stop by anytime between Mon-Fri from 10am-6pm to walk around and take all the art in.

First of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out for Fashion’s Night Out: “Celebrating Slow”.  The night was a huge success and all the panelists, designers, and workshop leaders had a great time and the energy was electric.  We had a great turnout for Hacking Sustainable Fashion and the Slow Fashion Panel could not have had a more intrigued audience.  The Textile Arts Center is so pleased with how the night went that we are having another event this Friday!  Don’t forget to check out the amazing textile artwork at Cutting Edge: A Celebration of Fiber Friday from 8-11pm curated by Joetta Maue.

For those that were unable to come to this amazing event don’t fret we documented the whole thing.  And if you still want to purchase from your favorite designers, all of them are online!
