Dressing 8 girls at the Nines

16 07 2009

Last week I got the phone call from Tito and Chris of Portland Fashion Week for the Nines hotel projects.  They have eight mannequins in the lobby since they were opened two years ago.  They were never dressed.  The hotel treated them as sculptures.  Having been a window dresser in my prior life.  I have always felt bad for them.  These girls have been naked for so long.  Well, naked no more.  At least for few days.  Last Saturday morning.  Chris and I dressed all of them up.  We all felt better that they were properly clothed.

We were not sure of what she is.  A mermaid or a bug?  Anyway, if I can dress a bug.  I can dress anything now.
