It’s Not About Covering Your Body, It’s About Flattering Your Figure!
Enjoy a style show of loose-fitting garments showing the dramatic difference between those that are simply large enough to cover, and those that fit well. The ease of wearing clothes cut for a more casual, un-constructed look isn’t about size – it’s about fitting key areas to achieve your most flattering silhouette, which creates the most comfortable wearing, too. See how Cynthia works with color to capitalize on the look, creating lively, fashion-forward looks with patterns that are easy to fit and truly wonderful to wear.

Fashion Show: Creative Embellishing
This show will feature embellished stylish garments with embroidery, quilting, and hand dyed fabrics. Angela Wolf has used her techniques to embroider jeans, jackets, sheer sleeves, knit tops and even wedding gowns. Her goal is to inspire you to take any basic pattern and completely transform it by embellishing.

Runway Knock Offs
Films, magazines, newspapers, television, fashion/style trendsetters are everywhere. We gaze in awe at the gowns on the red carpet, knowing an Edith Head, a Givenchy, an Oleg Cassini or a Carolina Herrera original would be far from our reach. Yet, if you sew, the look is just a thread away. From the elegant look of Susan Sarandon in "Feud:Bette and Joan" (as Bette Davis in "All About Eve") to Lily James' "bohemian style" (in "Mamma Mia 2, Here We Go Again"), to classics like Audrey and Jackie, join us as Jim Suzio features his recreations of these and several other iconic looks on the fashion runway. As Jim would say, "Don't just follow fashion, create it!"
