Last Saturday night I was fortunate to have the chance to model a one-of-a-kind jacket hand-created by Ann Lee who has a studio at Western Avenue. I had watched each original piece come together over the course of many months and Saturday Ann lined up 9 models to show her creations to the world! Well, at least to everyone who crowded into the standing-room-only runway area she set up in the loading dock. With WGBH's Margot Stage as MC, we paraded proudly, laughing and clowning a little as the crowd cheered us on!
Ann seemed to be in heaven and sold at least three jackets that night! It was huge fun and I'm so glad I participated despite a touch of stage fright. Here's Ann grinning in the middle as we applaud her:
I especially enjoyed creating original jewelry to match the jacket:
I don't think this launches my career as a professional model, but I'm sure it launches Ann's as a first class couturier!
