Here are some of the amazing pieces created by the designers, worn by models, and sometimes posed with the designers themselves (please note this is a very photo-heavy post):

The makeup on this model was so beautiful, I had to get a close-up of it, to share with you. Just amazing!

Designer: Charise Noelle Crawford
|Art: Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, View of Volterra|

I loved the back of this dress - it evoked the landscape featured in the painting perfectly, and the sheen of the fabrics really brought out the richness of foliage and rushing water beautifully.

Overall, it was a gorgeous event and I'm so glad I was able to attend. If you're local to San Diego or happen to be in town, I highly recommend you check out the Timken - it's a small, intimate sort of museum, and it has a really beautiful collection, which I am looking forward to perusing at leisure, sometime in the future. Admission to the museum is always free too, which is an added bonus, and as I mentioned before, some of the designs from Art of Fashion will be on exhibit during the month of October.
Thanks for reading!
