I had the opportunity to walk the runway at Ready Set DC Fashion:District last weekend. It was a blast! a BLAST! All the hype and excitement backstage set the tone for the evening. Being transformed to match the designer's collection created a certain persona for each model. For me, it was a combination of anxiety and eagerness. But once you step out on the catwalk, you feel confident, powerful, giddy, and free. Until you fall! I didn't. I think your confidence abandons you after a fall.

These funky patterns and unique shapes are designs from Artaya. Last month, I attended another fashion show for Artaya and was so drawn to her style. Of course, I was thrilled to model for this show. There were several talented DC's designers showcasing their spring and summer collection as well.
Huge thank you to Dana Greaves of Artaya for having me!
