Last Saturday we went for a quick trip to Austin Texas to check out AUSTIN STITCH, which we think is the hottest DIY fashion show around, with a fun ‘Guerrilla Craft Bazaar’. During the day we ran into old and new friends: We saw our sweet member Kristen (1), who won two tickets from us, our old friends Corinne and Rob (3)from the fabulous Threadbanger (BurdaStyle was featured on Threadbanger here.), had a quick chat with the amazing organizer Jennifer Perkins (4) who heads the The Naughty Secretary Club and finally met our contest winner Melissa (5) – whose design is produced and will be shot this coming Monday in our photo shoot!

We saw Bradley Baumkirchner (2, on the left) from Project Runway and and were impressed by the artistry and creativity of the fashion show. You can see some of the wonderful designs in our picture collage! Especially spectacular were Tina Sparkles’ intricate and glittery embroidery that displayed American presidents. Also impressive were all dressed up and shy, the romantic looks of the Boudoir Queen, Ramonster and many more…
