On Thursday, Feb. 20th I had the honor of participating in my first RAW Artists Boise show! The fashion show I worked on was a collaboration between fellow stylist Kellie Levesque (founder of Fashion Kellie,) myself, and jewelry designer Denise Vasecka of Unigon Specialties. (I’ve written about Denise and her fabulous work before here.) Denise designs gorgeous custom pieces with metal, crystal, chain mail, and beads. Her fabulous pieces were the inspiration for every look, and the highlight of the show. Enjoy these photos of our RAW: Awakenings fashion show, courtesy of talented photographer Emily Hawkins.

XOXO,
Tanya

  1. There are special nights in your life that will always glow in your mind and especially in your heart, that night was February 20, 2014 for me. I have more than just that night in my heart, but this one is so incredibly etched in my mind and heart that I am looking forward to more like it! The models and my “girls” told me that once I got a taste of the fun that was gonna happen, I would want it again! I do want it again, only if I can have the creative Dream Team that consisted of Tanya, Kellie, Amanda, Emily, Adam, CHad, Gabe, Danny and Rob. The models are sweet icing on the cake! (And those who know me, know I love cake!)

    Thank you Tanya for your help, guidance, love and loyalty. I can only love you more!

    1. Kayla is such a stunning young lady! She rocked this look. 🙂 Aunie, Chad at Azure salon did Kellie’s hair for the event – he’s super talented!!! I think you’d look fantastic with a similarly-tousled wavy ‘do!

  2. That’s all good, still some are probably wondering what the acronym (if it is one) RAW stands for, although there is a probable good guess in there.

    You have a story without a leadin and no explanantion.
