A wonderful member of TQS, Ferret, has sent us a delightful slideshow from the Birmingham Festival of Quilts, held in August this year. It was created by her friend Angela Madden who is also a textile designer, author, quilter, and teacher. Ferret contributed some amazing fashions and also wanted to point out another of her friend's fashions that received no credit. It is a blue/green/black dress in the show listed as Fashion Student. That student is Sarah Poulter and Ferret talks about her here.
These are photos from the "Fashion sans Frontieres" wearable art fashion show held at the Hilton Metropole Hotel. N.E.C., Birmingham Festival of Quilts 2010. It was a Russia versus the U.K. Challenge, The U.K. won on popular vote.
Warning, there is one tad bit "racy" slide toward the end of the show.
