When its go time on the runway, long legs march to their fierce beat, heads are cocked with rock star expressions, eyes pierce through the crowd. Back stage the chaos amidst every effort to run things orderly inevitably unfolds, models whip around with a team of hands undressing and reconfiguring the next outfit. All for the love of wining the shock factor, pushing the envelope, crossing their fingers to earn the respect of past designers.

Cue the music, hit the lights, blow up the inflatable super sized space suit: we’re rolling out. In honor of the first female in space Russian astronaut Valentina Tereshkova, this fashion show takes place inside a gigantic replica of her space suit. These partners in design are Polish born, New York City based artists Christian Tomaszewski and Joanna Malinowska who joined forces to create this history lesson runway. “Mother Earth Sister Moon” communicates the future as imagined by Communist regimes of the former Soviet Bloc. Their interpretation hinges on fashion and design remembering items such as the Soviet space program, sci-fi film, literature of the era, the explosion of 1908 over the Tunguska River Valley. Inspiration stems from a similar sculpture “Hon-en Katedral” (or She-A Cathedral) of 1966. It is something extraordinary, full of the love for a broken people, witnessing their healing, cheering for their efforts amidst great odds. So strong a force that no one can argue, the fame of art always brings us together.

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
