My one and only Modeling Debut ~ Fashion Bug 2012

I was very honored this May when I went into the Local Fashion Bug and they asked me who made my jewelry. I said I did. They asked me if I would be interested in displaying my jewelry at their fashion show. They said they are inviting different people but they wanted a jewelry artist there and loved my work. I of course said YES!!!  I asked how much it would be. They said free. You just come and bring your work. They had huge tables set up for me. They then asked me if I would model their cloths for them. I was hesitant at first then they said you get 40% off anything in the store. Ok who doesnt like a deal. It gets better.

My booth and Me at the Fashion Show

Closer View of me and some of my work

Me in one of my outfits I modeled for the show & I also got to model my Jewelry in the Show. They had local beauticians there that did our hair and makeup for free. What girl doesnt like to get primped up and all glammed out for free. Lots of freebies that day.

Photo of me in another outfit I modeled with my Jewelry.  They also had vendors from Avon, Pampered Chef, and several home decorating places. We all got a bag full of goodies from local business people and even some free lunches. Reminds me I need to get with my friends and we all need to go to lunch.

Me again. Fun part was they had a professional photographer there. She took over 100 photos of me free of charge on a disk. I could have the disk for free to keep and If I wanted larger prints they were less than a few dollars to have them edited and blown up. I dont like photos of me so I didnt get enlarged photos but I truly had a wonderful day. My dear friend Carol was in it also, I talked her into coming with me. It was a fun experience and a great source of free advertisment for my art and jewelry. Lots of fun, great cloths and a few good sales :). I look forward to next year. They already asked me back and if I would let more models wear my jewelry. I said SURE!

Check your local Fashion Bug, the girls told me that every Fashion Bug has fashion shows at least one to two times a year, They are always looking for models, vendors and its all free. You cant beat a fun day with lots of free stuff and supporting your local area business.
