AND THE WINNER IS . . . . (drum roll please) . . .
GRACE DUVAL JOHNSTON, AGAIN! Yes, folks, this time she won the Uncommon Threads Wearable Art Fashion Show, held in downtown Baton Rouge at the Louisiana State Museum. FIRST PLACE!!!
Her dress is made of balsa wood and actually curtsy's-on-demand upon pulling the drawstrings built into the dress. The underlining is a bodice constructed from pantyhose! Can you believe?
(Grace and I think so much alike creatively, maybe our mothers were sisters and we don't know it). Time for some genealogy research . . .
The necklace is a collection of vintage bone, celluloid and ceramic artifacts that came together effortlessly for Grace's Exoskeleton Dress. A little plucking, grinding, drilling, tweaking and VOILA! A winning combination takes it in Baton Rouge.
LET'S DO IT AGAIN GRACIE! Can we talk her into doing Project Runway, please???
