Just as I was finishing the last outfit for my preview collection, I received an email from, the MassArt co-ordinator of the Boston Magazine Dress Project, Jayne Avery. She was emailing me to inform me that my dress, along with two other wearable non-textile pieces were going to be featured on a brief news segment on NECN (New England Channel News).
The non-textile pieces would be worn by models during the segment to promote the Simons Mall Fashion Now event in Burlington, Massachusetts. I was so excited to receive such great news! While making the dress I had no idea where it would be seen, or how it would be displayed. So this would be the first time I would see my creation on a person, as well as outside of the capacity of my studio.
We arrived at the studio at 7:30a.m to fit models
I was so pleased with the fit and silhouette of the piece once I saw it on my model! After the models were fit, we proceeded into the newsroom for the taping of the segment.

What an exciting way to begin my trip back to Massachusetts!
I would have a full schedule of events from this point on, including fitting Alexandra Hall, an Editor for Boston Magazine,altering a paper dress, participating in a fashion show, and being featured in a fashion event all in 3 days.
