“Art on the Runway” showcases the work of Hermann artists
Four lines of equal length once just made a square, now lines and geometric forms take on even more dimension. One -of- a- kind creations make up.
“Art on the Runway..A Fashion Show of Wearable Art.” That’s the theme of the 14th annual Hermann Area District Hospital (HADH) fashion show and fund raiser that celebrates a wide range of Hermann talent. The show will be held in the Hermann Hill Banquet room on March 21st. The vendor market opens at 10.
The “Art” in something you wear can come from the construction, the choice of fabric, or even the embellishments. Local artists use jewelry, coats,
jackets, capes, vests, sweaters, dresses and skirts as canvasses to show their own styles and mediums. Cotton canvas jackets are painted in abstract patterns, plein aire landscapes and one even has a jeweled collar.
Some of the garments will be auctioned, some will be for sale and others will be from the artists’ own collections.
A kimono style shirt features eco printing, a natural dying process using plant material wrapped in bundles and steamed. There will be knitted shawls, one from cashmere and mink yarn , leather and fabric accessories
The event is sponsored by the HADH Auxiliary. For more information, call 486-2041.
