The Port Townsend Wearable Art Show is gaining recognition for being one of the top shows of its kind. The event was founded in 2011 as a fundraiser for the Jefferson County Community Foundation’s Fund for Woman and Girls.
This year, the team at Nunn Design all attended the show. It was especially fun for me because my 12-year-old daughter, Emillia, participated in the student division.
Emillia worked for several months with our neighbor Liz on her wearable art creation. She constructed her “Crazy Card Creation” using Pokemon Cards that she had collected at garage sales. Emillia won first place in the student division and tied for 2nd place in the People’s Choice Award.
To watch my daughter on the catwalk for this event was beyond words. I can’t help but get a little teary-eyed each time I see these images of her. It wasn’t because I was “proud” of her, although I was; it was something way beyond that. I think for myself, I saw a power greater than her physical body on that Catwalk. I saw my daughter become the warrior that she is.
I am passionate about art and living a creative life. Seeing my daughter that day reflected the values that I have held true for my family and myself. It was one of the most meaningful moments of my life to witness my daughter living the life that she is intended to. To see her confident and in her power.
