The Art of Fashion

Brynne Cogorno

Hair, Makeup, Glam, Runway!

The Art of Fashion Show was a huge success! I ended up filling in for one of my models because of an injury. Honestly, I was so nervous. I design the shirts, model them down the runway? I don't think so. The idea of modeling scares me and brings butterflies to my stomach. I'm happy to say it was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed Roots Beauty doing my makeup and hair.

It felt wonderful having someone else pamper me. I've been working on this little thing called self-love for the past 3 years, and I hadn't thought of allowing someone else to do something nice for me. I mean, I've had the occasional mani and pedi, but anyways, this was different, and I loved it. Roots Beauty is located in Laguna Beach, they're a fully non-toxic cosmetic shop & organic hair color salon, specializing in organic makeup, skincare, & haircare.

There were 3 of use modeling my shirts which were all new from this years summer collection. It was so much fun walking down that runway. I'm really happy that I decided to wear one of my own tanks. It was one of those things I can cross of my list and feel proud to say I did that once! Vanessa and Charlotte did an incredible job representing Backward Prints as well. A big thanks to everyone who put on the show. It was purely magical.

  Opening weekend at the Winter Fantasy art festival was a huge success.  I was blown away at how many return customers came by to see me.  Thank you to each and every one of you for your continued support.  I love this show because the grounds have been transformed into a whimsical wonderland.  It's not every day you get to hangout with Santa, sit in his sleigh, and watch all the cute kids playing in a house made of gingerbread.  To top all this off, it even snows! 

  Our show runs for 4 more weekends.  Check out our calendar to see the show dates and times.  We will be open this from 10am-6pm.  Booth #120
