Get Ready, Set, Cars and Couture Runway!

  Tacoma is not my side of the City but when Fashion Distrcit NW invited The Citizen Life to cover Cars and Couture Fashion Show presented by Architech held at LeMay- America's Car Museum, I knew I had to make an appearance.   []     Okay, so I wasn't modeling, but from the vibe I got as soon as I walked in the door, I might as well have been. My guest and I got to walk down the runway itself as we mingled with other fashionistas such as Frilancy Hoyle and the Seattle Gents.             []   Designer line up read the following: Dawnamatrix followed by Gustavo Apiti Couture, Dream Dresses by PMN, Carole McClellan and closing the Runway was Lisa Marie Couture. There was also a Vendor lounge where featured artist and booth vendors were able to showcase. I never miss the opportunity to get up close and personal with the Designers and their wonderful designs- Follow us on Social Media to Get the INSIDER SCOOP.   Get Set, GO!   Dawnamatrix first design to walk down #carsandcouture17 Runway.
