Press: Chicago Sun Times - Co-Ed Couture

Posted Mon, May 16, 2005 in Press Media

I participated in the student fashion show at The Illinois Institute of Art - Chicago, and imagine my surprise to find that the show, and my Feathered Femmes collection, were featured in a large full color photo in the article "Co-Ed Couture" in the Chicago Sun Times!

My designs featured re-purposed fedora feathers in red and black, with specs of gold, against black pleated chiffon and artfully gathered and tucked tulle, against a backdrop of deep burgundy red crepe back satin. I also created complimentary masks with feathers and beads for the models to hold up as they made their entrance on the runway. "Co-Ed Couture", by Tammy Chase; Photos by Rich Hein
