If you haven’t yet purchased a ticket for this year’s event, hurry to the Fashion Show website, www.mujeresamujeres.com or come to the Avenida Restaurant at the Thursday market- there are only 30 tickets remaining! This year’s slate of designers is sure to captivate with all the lovely ensembles.
Leading off the modeling portion of the day is leather artist Ruth Suarez. Her design label signifies a hand-crafted, well -made bag or leather product. “I love the feel of real leather,” said Ruth. “If a customer can tell me her desires for a purse, I can make it.” Ruth has the rare gift of being able to conceptualize beauty in raw materials “I spread out the fabric or leather and I get a feel for a particular shape or design,” she says with a laugh, “it talks to me!” Next, she considers the customer’s size and preferences to create a pattern. After carefully cutting the material to accent its best qualities, Ruth sews the material to construct the finished product. It takes about eight hours for a simple leather lady’s handbag.
For Fashion Show 2015 Ruth’s theme is “Golden Girls” with all of her models strutin’ their stuff-and all the women are over 70 years young! The models will be featured in white and black fashions. “I love having the challenge of creating unique, personal pieces!” To set up a consultation, contact Ruth:
