Amy is a member of a local band, Post Paradise, and has style to match her musical/interior design skills! They were the headliner for the fashion show and I was privileged to make her outfit. The corset is a handmade piece by a label called Laced Gypsy. The skirt was made from material cut from someone’s curtains. The shirt was a brocade fabric with a lace-up back to show off Amy’s [future] cello tattoo. The band has a decidedly steampunk influence, minus the goggles. And since Amy is fairly shy, the guys of the band were pretty surprised to see her struttin down that catwalk!
