Appointment TV

Not only was cutie Adam Lambert a guest judge on tonight's Project Runway, but it seems like each commercial break brought one amazing promo for  appointment television after the next. 

In November 
Project Runway All Stars!

And I believe the casting is finished for 
Project Accessories! 
Clutch the pearls!
 
And this wasn't in the Lifetime promos but 
Wednesday October 12th is the season 2 premiere of 
Work of Art

"If you don't take money they can't tell you what to do." 
~Bill Cunningham

I know, I know, this movie has been out forever! ... And I really wanted to see it with fellow fashion blogger Scorpion Disco, but we couldn't work out the scheduling.  
Anywhoooo... thanks to this lovely rainy afternoon, I've seen it! And I'm so inspired by Bill Cunningham's passion and tenacity.  It makes me want to step up my game.... and isn't that what art is supposed to do? Inspire?

Meet Sally Congdon-Martin



Sally Congdon-Martin always wears an expression that says, "I've got a secret.".  And after reading her second book Emerging Fashion Designers 2,  the secret is out!  Sally knows fashion! Her ability to recognize unique talent, style, and the best in emerging designers is what makes this second book as fantastic as the first.  

Introducing  
Emerging Fashion Designers 2
If you're in Philadelphia... you can meet Sally in person and get your very own volume of Emerging Fashion Designers 2 .... and get it signed!

Moore College of Art - Jump Start Fashion!

They can't order me to stop dreaming.
~ Cinderella

A work in progress
It's that time of year again... Moore College of Art is holding its annual Jump Start Fashion Show. And this year's theme is PaPer View ... celebrating a moment in time.

The runway show will feature sculptural gowns made of paper products by junior and senior fashion design majors. And like Cinderella's magical night at the ball, they leave a lasting impression but are not created to stand the test of time. 

A work in progress


Tuesday October 4th 6:00 - 6:40PM  
Moore College of Art - 20Th and the Parkway
Free and Open to the Public
