Earlier this past winter, I posted that I had submitted two of my pieces to two art magazines in the hopes that they would choose me and my artwork to publish. Well, they did! My hat titled “Love Letter” was chosen as a finalist for the Hot for Hats challenge and here is the article as it appears in the Summer 2012 issue of Belle Armoire. I received my copy of the magazine from them and have also now had the pleasure of seeing it on newstands!
I have posted the magazine cover as well as pictures and text from the article for you to see and read. My hat is the cream coloured fedora with the Eiffel tower image and feathers. The related text is entitled “Bombshell Fedora”. My name, place of residence and contact information was also provided in the article.
I was also contacted this week by one of their sister publications, Altered Couture and advised that they would like to publish the other of my submissions for their November 2012 issue. This one is the upcycled slip dress that I mentioned in my first posting about all this. I will be sure to post that article and its accompanying photos once it is printed and published.
I am so honoured and encouraged by all this. I love and believe in what I do but it is still a huge confidence booster to be validated by the clothing art world!
