Isabella Nunn in the 2019 9th Annual Port Townsend Wearable Art Show


Introducing Madame Butterfly

The Port Townsend Wearable Art Show is a very big event in our small seaport town. This was my daughter Isabella’s 2nd Wearable Art Show.

Isabella was inspired to create a kimono using butter boxes after seeing an exhibit of kimonos on tour from the Rome Opera House’s Madame Butterfly production.

Isabella was mentored by our neighbor Liz in the making of her Madame Butterfly Kimono. Many of neighbors and friends saved butter boxes and contributed to Isabella’s creative endeavor.

The Port Townsend Wearable Art Show is a fundraiser for Jefferson Community Foundation’s Fund for Woman and Girls. It celebrated its 9th annual event over the Mother’s Day weekend with over 48 wearable art creations to make up the 2019 show. Besides the show itself, dozens of hairdressers and make-up artist donate their time to help each of the models.

Team Nunn comes out to support the event annually as well, making it a fun event of creativity.
