First-Time Runway Model: Age 63

The model in question is not me.

It's my office partner and friend, Carrie Knowles, who will take a turn on the runway tonight in the third annual Redress Raleigh fashion show.   I call this bold — and a lot of fun. 

What she and the other models will be wearing is clothes by local Raleigh designers that are ecologically sound, that are made with social and environmental awareness. "Eco-friendly can be in the form of recycled or remanufactured garments, as well as using eco-friendly fabrics and production processes."

I couldn't manage to embed the video piece on last year's show, but if you click on this link you'll see that it's pretty much like Fashion Week in Paris.   I've also just discovered that the show is sold out.  Probably Vogue's Anna Wintour got my seat.

Brava, Carrie!

      She seemed to be having a great time, Karlene. I like your Bold is Beautiful idea a lot.

    Hi there I am so delighted I found your webpage. A quick question if you don’t mind. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it easy to read for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Superb work!…

      Several people have worked on it over the years, SEO. Something about your name suggests to me that you’re a spammer. If so, this is the first sane-sounding message I’ve ever had from a spammer, so I’ve kept it. I don’t understand why others don’t send a message that is at least comprehensible. Most of them read like a jumble of refrigerator magnet words.

      I’m working on getting some pictures sent to me, Aiki. And my E book came out only hours ago — you will hear more very soon.
