The Urban Market ~ February 13, 2010

Sharing a few photos made yesterday at the 3rd Urban Market held at Lexington's Hilton Suites at Lexington Green.

This is an event to help fund the mission behind a non-profit called Capacity Inc. For more info click here: 

I was pleased with the event and was honored to be a vendor!

Even though it was a cold snowy day in KY yesterday, lots of customers turned out to support us.  The free wine, chocolate, etc., made it extra fun also.

Next month ~ on March 13th, the Urban Market will feature Soreyda Fashion Designs. 

Soreyda's passion for fashion started at very young age, as a little girl she sewed by hand and used any materials she could find to create her designs, she still uses unconventional materials on her designs. At the age of 13 she entered a sewing academy were she learned the techniques for pattern making and garment construction. For 18 years she has been continuously designing and making clothes, creating unique pieces that have been shown on the runway and in art shows around the Kentucky area and in New York NY, Chicago, Virginia Fashion Week and Atlanta, GA. She also has won several awards for her work. Soreyda's clothing line, S. Benedit, debuted in Spring 2005.  She has expanded her line by including cocktail and evening dresses. Her clothing is available at Zag's Boutique in Lexington.
