  • The Winner Is... A Purple Crepe Satin Blazer

    June 8, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    Winner PML photo for blog
    Greetings,
    My name is Tesha Williams-Muhammad. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois.  I am married and have four boys.  I have been designing, according to my mother, from birth.  From my prom dress to a magnificent gala, I have always designed my dress or outfits to wear.  My inspiration right now comes from the search for balance in raising my Autistic son and everything I contact in the Universe, spiritually, mentally, morally, physically and financially. For example, I can take a simple walk through an open field and just because I appreciate it, my next dress will have an array of green colors, different textures with gold notions. That is why I love Britex Fabrics and notions.  Britex helps my visions leap into fruition.  Also, when I don't have vision, I can count on the Britex environment with its very large array of colors and textures to create the next new and beautiful piece for the world to enjoy.  I am a designer and the world is my Tapestry.

     

    Tesha is the winner of 2 free tickets to our fall fashion show PROJKT Maiden Lane, featuring Emily Payne, presenting her children's line "Devon Rose" and introducing her new unisex outerwear collection CTRL with Nicky Lifestyles, Richard Hallmarq, Kini Zamora (Project Runway) and Rey Ortiz (Under the Gunn) with San Francisco ARTist: Michael Covington (collaborative pieces with Emily Payne)
    and DJ Keith Kraft
