Draping With Emily Payne from Project Runway

Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 10:30-12:30 PM & 1:30-3:30 PM | $40

Two opportunities to learn to drape from Project Runway star Emily Payne. Emily will share her own designs by letting you in on their draping secrets. Each demo will last about one hour and a half, with plenty of time for q&a to follow. Plus, every participant gets 20% off regular-priced fabrics, on the day of class only. If you're interested in draping, this is the demo workshop for you. Emily Payne, San Francisco based fashion designer and former Britex Fabrics team member has showcased her fashion design skills on the Lifetime network series Project Runway Season 13, and will be featured on the upcoming season of Project Runway All Stars. Emily's women's fashion label is Leathertongue, and her childrenswear line is DevonRose.
