Rhett Anders, the brainchild behind the event (along with Columbia Design League) led the intros for the evening. Before the show could begin; he instructed all the audience to say as loud as we could "Hey Bitch". The audience followed suit and out come the well known movie star and diva "Lady Chablis" as entertainment. She performed several dance numbers and a few extra dollar bills slid her way, by enthusiastic fans. (clearly they had seen her before!) The outfit I liked the best was a faded denim ensemble worn for the recycled show. It was ripped and torn and adorned with fringe and layered. The top was a midriff bearing crop top. I'd like to know who designed that outfit. I loved it!
The wonderful collection of designs we saw included many beautiful dresses in all lengths. A very southern plantation style dress was made with wine soaked coffee filters, designed by Matthew Mattox and worn by Tamara Greig for a stunning look. I also liked one of the designs by Bohumila Owensby and worn with attitude by professional model Ashley Bennett made out of soda cans and tabs.
One that was great looking and clearly had a lot of work was designed and worn by Jillian Owens. She was in the top 10, which is an honor but she deserved much more!!! The audience voting for the top 6 was a little confusing; she clearly had the loudest applause. But the background music was loud and it didn't get through to the stage that the audience wanted her to be in the top 6. A whole bunch of people booed when she was eliminated because it was a big mistake. Her dress was made from several old prom dresses and romance novels. It was a very elegant looking dress and her hair was really cool too. Girl; who's your hairstylist?? Loved the overall look!
Paige Haggard was funny talking about her design made of Beer caps. She told the audience "this is from a lot of nights getting hammered both literally and figuratively!" If there were an award for most interesting quote of the night; that would be it!!!
As for most professional in every sense of the word, my vote goes to Jeremy Thomas as designer and model. What makes a look really successful, besides looking good, it should be something people will want to buy and wear. Jeremy's outfit had a great look made with towels, curtains and window blinds and it is a very marketable look. If I had been the judge he would have won Number 1 and Jillian Owens would have won Number 2. BTW, I do not know any of the designers or the models in this show.
Anyway, bitches...that's all I have to say. You'll have to google the internet for photos. I only had my cell phone camera and they didn't come out that good. I am looking forward to the event again next year.

This facility will constitute an adaptive reuse of a former big box retail store, and will house the municipal court and also provide space for a police substation. The footprint of the facility is 108,000 square feet, and is sited on a high elevation near the interstate highway (IH-35) in north central Austin.

The facility will be located within the St. Johns neighborhood of Austin, at IH-35 and St. Johns. The project is a “design-build,” with the design manual expected to be finished to go out for bid by late spring 2008.
The artwork opportunities for this facility are open, and the artist will be an integral part of the design team working on this project. Multi-media, digital media and other innovative approaches are encouraged.

Within His Star: The Story of Levi Pearson"
"Sunday, April 6, 2008, Columbia, South Carolina – A Renaissance woman, Poetess and Songstress, Eboniramm now embarks on a new career as the Author/Editor of Within His Star: The Story of Levi Pearson.
Eboniramm was born in Manning, S.C. and is a descendant of the Gullah culture of South Carolina’s Low Country. She is a Vocalist; however, her full resume reflects the talents of a true Renaissance woman, as Poet, Vocalist, Educator and now Author.
This debut book is about her great-grandfather, Mr. Levi Pearson, who was a civil rights pioneer. In 1947, Mr. Pearson filed a groundbreaking court case against Clarendon County, South Carolina that sought to obtain bus transportation for the county’s Black public school children. This case ultimately laid the groundwork for the historic 1954, school desegregation case, Brown vs. The Board of Education. Her book title comes from a comment Dr. Benjamin E. Mayes made in reference to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during his eulogy. The voice and tone of the book shows Mr. Pearson’s strong faith and commitment to do the best he could for his family and community. These are lessons we could all learn from to build our own character and community today.
The life of her great-grandfather has always been an inspiration to Eboniramm, as his courage and dedication show his willingness to, “sacrifice so much to obtain simple justice.” So, on Mother’s Day 2005, she embarked on her own personal journey of discovery as she sat at the kitchen of her grandparent’s home listening to her grandfather, Mr. Ferdinand Pearson Sr., share the story of his father, which she now brings to the public at large through the book, Within His Star.
For additional information call, Sufia Giza at 803.738.1060 or to schedule a book signing, please contact Eboniramm at 803.665.7036 or she can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org."
