This suit, despite only being a calico prototype and being only half finished, completely blew me away.
A couple of the garments from last years Expo
This is what I imagine Scuba Steve's girlfriend would wear if she actually existed and was incredibly fabulous.

This Saturday, we were lucky enough to be invited to visit our towns local design school and document their preparation for the upcoming Schwarzkopf Gala Showcase for Hair Expo 2011. To be honest, I was ridiculously nervous as I walked up those steps to the school, because I had NO idea what to expect and I was feeling the added pressure knowing this school has become such a prominent figure in our community! It turns out my nervousness was completely unnecessary. Peter Dwyer, who is the fashion design teacher/mentor/incredibly talented designer in his own right, was one of the loveliest people I've met in quite a while!

While I was there work was being done of one of the concepts for the show, I won't give too much away, but lets just say it involves suits!

Not only was I shown the prototypes for some of the costumes they're creating I was given a tour of the entire school! And then left to my own devices to photograph and drool all over the clothes potter around. We'll be heading back next week to take more photos as they begin construction on garments for the other concepts they'll be presenting. I'd like to thank Peter for inviting me over in the first place, and letting me take photos and what not!
