Tatting Walks The Runway

I spent much of the weekend in nervous anticipation of this singular event. I kept thinking that this might be one of those moments that changes everything...or not. Whether or not it does a single thing for my personal career, one thing is absolutely true. Hand tatted lace has now walked the runway during New York Fashion Week. It is already this morning a small part of features on Vogue.com, Style.com and New York Fashion. So far, no one, but my friends has mentioned the lace accessories, but maybe still. So I present some pictures with my ankle corsets and necklaces. The masks weren't ultimately worn and you'll notice the ankle corsets also being used as necklaces, but you will notice them.

There are also a couple of videos posted on my facebook page of the final walk and a link to one blogger review. I am of course stalking mentions of the show for more reviews and I will share them if I find any. Thank you to Sonia of Bensoni for her creative use of my lace, I totally want a few of those dresses and if you get a moment visit the links up top for more of the pieces in the collection.

Frankly, I've never been that impressed with what fashion designers come up with; the stuff just plain looks ridiculous. This time, though, they actually have style - courtesy of *your tatting.*

I sure hope they gave you some public credit - you deserve it, especially after having to remake everything because somebody stupidly refused the package. (At least you get those pieces back. Maybe you can put them in your Etsy shop and charge more for them because they're famous now. :) )

I'm glad you finally got this recognition. It's long overdue.

Super sexy! Love your tatting AND the dresses! So often, runway pieces are things that no normal person would ever have occasion to wear, but this collection really strikes me as perfect for a stylish party. Hope it does wonders for your business :)

Way to go Totus! That HAS to thrill you! I think it's WONDERFUL to have tatting get that kind of exposure. You went that extra mile in the face of all odds to get them something and I'd be darned well disappointed if they hadn't used them so pat yourself on the back. You deserve it!
