Calavera Fashion Show, Walking Altars

Tropico De Nopal will be hosting its sixth annual Calavera Fashion Show, Wearable Altars and celebrating it's 10yr Anniversary on Saturday, November 7, 2009

I have been invited to participate and I will be creating a piece that integrates historical painting, and personal relationships. Although I would like to keep the design a surprise... It is no surprise that it will be dedicated to my grandfather whom recently passed earlier this year.
My grandfather was a skilled tradesman who worked in the car and furniture upholstery industry for more than 50 years. He sewed all of his life, and I was fortunate enough to acquire his talent. I am my grandfather's legacy... and I hope to make him proud this November at the fashion show.
