Sawdust Art Festival Presents “The heART of Fashion” on Sunday, August 27

LAGUNA BEACH, CA–(Marketwired – Aug 21, 2017) – The Sawdust Arts Festival will be hosting a fashion show this summer. The show is called “The heART of Fashion,” featuring works from fourteen Sawdust textile and clothing artists who paint a story with this one-of-a-kind, synergetic collection. “Art is the heart of fashion, the music that creates the beat… the stroke of the pencil or pen, a brush or stitch that eventually creates dreams on a canvas or clothes to be worn on the body to express the songs of the heart,” remarks Terrell Washington Anansi, the Master of Ceremonies along with Sawdust artist Muffin Spencer Devlin. “Art is at the heart of the matter and the heart of the matter is the creative and manifested vision of each of these individual 14 artist and designers, all in the language of textiles and form. Step within their visionary minds… in the heART of Fashion.”

The show will be on Sunday, August 27, 4 p.m. – 5 p.m.
