Sweet Naomi Original ReCreations

The name Sweet Naomi comes from a song that I first learned about in high school when a friend told me that some kid said this was his favorite song (supposedly because he had a "crush" on me.)  I had never heard of the song and it was a couple of years later when Russ told me about the song, actually called Naomi's Song by Jerry Riopelle written for his wife, Naomi.
A cute song with crazy lyrics.  

So there you go. Trivia.
(...oh! and it has absolutely nothing to do with whether I am sweet...or not.) 

Anyhow, I thought this would be a sorta romantic looking name and logo for my Flamenco Inspired designs that I would be designing and showing at the Tucson Flamenco Festival. I had been invited to attend as a designer and be a part of the Fashion Show.

You can read the details here on my story titled  I Am Committed!

And you can see my progress in this story,  The Project Consumes Me!

And, then pictures of the fashion Show at  Here We Go!

6 of the 10 original dresses that I made for the Fashion Show were sold during the event.
Here are photos that we took of some of them.  

Notice the black, white and pink dress (above left) 
Here is how it started out before being "ReCreated" 
these are the original clothing items that I used to 
make the new Flamenco Dress. 

And, here is the final garment being modeled!


I have to throw in this photo.
Here is a Pirate outfit and a Mermaid Outfit.
Made of recycled clothing, seashells and fishing nets.

Another fun thing to "Re-Create" are old T-Shirts.  
Here are some sample of T-shirt dresses 
that I have been creating. Many of these 
have been special order. 

Recycled skirt made from t-shirts and blouses.

Recycled dress made from a tank and other discarded clothing items.

A recycled dress made from a women's sweater and a man's sweater.
