Some photos from the first “build a gown” Baroque Fashion Show, organized by Shawna creator of Re Neux, presented during the annual Lighting of Ledoux.  My gown and antlers are inspired by the Troll Queen in the East of the Sun West of the Moon re-told fairy tale by Edith Pattou.

This Saturday is the annual Taos Lighting of Ledoux celebration.  All of the galleries and shops on Ledoux street open their doors and offer visitors cookies and refreshments.  There are warming fires burning and even some music making. It is a lighthearted atmosphere.  

For the first time ever  Shawna, from Re Neux, is hosting a build a gown fashion show.  With 11 very talented participants it promises to be an event worth attending.  My excitement is growing as my gown nears completion.
