We had dinner at Sally's After Dark, near the school, and it was quite yummy. We recommend this place if you happen to be in Potrero Hill neighborhood in San Francisco.
My nephew was so impressed with his kids dinner, because it was far from a normal kids dinner! Glad to see a restaurant get this right, and serve real food to kids.....Anyway..
Cyrous was trying to be serious......
Then he finally broke....
Off to the show now, and if you have been watching "Project Runway," you will notice Amy Sarabi second to the left. She is a CCA alum. Nicole had a class with her a few years back. We sat directly across from her.
Here comes Nicole's collection. To say I'm a proud mom is an understatement!! Nicole poured so much heart and soul into her work, and We are so, so proud of how her collection turned out. You can click on the photos to see them larger. The name of her collection was "Treasures of the Sea."
Loved this rain coat, and the dress under it. You can't see the detail, but the fabric was designed by her, and had small crabs done in little dots. Super cute up close.
Love this coat! It is made of wool cashmere, don't know if you can see the blue lobsters on it, but they were all handmade for her.
If I could fit in this coat, I'd buy it from her.
This was a darling two piece outfit that was made of vintage 1940's silk.
I loved watching the audience when this came down the runway, everyone had a smile on their faces and clapped as it went by.
You really can't see how beautiful this top is from this picture, but again, if I could fit into it I would want it! I did get to help out with some of the work in her collection. I wish I could have helped more, but my physical condition wouldn't let me. I did some had work for her, like the embroidery on the shorts above, and some of the hemming. She had a good friend at her side to help her, and she was a life saver.
This is the final piece, and again, the photo really doesn't do the dress justice, since the fabric is so delicious !! So, those were Nicole's pieces that made the final cut for the show. She had more, but most students were allowed a max of five. I have tons of photos from the show, but I don't want to bore you with all of them. Here are a few highlights......
Can't believe some of these models walked down the runway on point!!
Loved this lingerie collection
This collection reminds me of white carnations.
There were two children's wear designers. I liked this one the best.
Here they are at the end of the show....
Nicole marching out with one of her models.
She is looking over at us and grinning with a huge sigh of relief I think, because it is all over!
The show was so well put together, and presented.
We were very proud parents that night!! Good Job kid!
