Patricia Michaels, Taos fashion designer and former Project Runway contestant (pmwaterlilyfashion.com), will give a talk at Albuquerque Museum on November 4th entitled "The Heart of Mother Earth Given to the Soul of Women in the Arts who Touched Taos."
Michaels' strong roots at Taos Pueblo and the influence of the modernist aesthetic of women artists and patrons of 20th century New Mexico (including Georgia O'Keeffe, Agnes Martin, and Mabel Dodge Luhan) influence her designs and philosophy.
The evening begins at 6pm with a cash bar and hors d'oeuvres cocktail reception. Michaels will speak at 7 p.m. Guests will have the rare opportunity to purchase select items of Michaels' couture during the Trunk Show. Jewelry, scarves, and clothing (with prices starting at $45) will be shown by live models strolling and mingling with guests. All items will be available for sale at the Museum Store.
Seating is limited. Tickets are $30 ($http:/
Make it a night on the town with friends, fashion, and fancy finger foods.
