Creative Growth Beyond Trend Runway Show

Co-styling the Creative Growth Beyond Trend Runway Show has become an annual tradition for us.  Each year our inspiration and awe grow, as do our relationships with the runway team and with the Creative Growth artists.  Participating in this event is a true honor and each year we are so grateful for and motivated by the experience.  This year the runway show was held in a new venue, The Berkeley Art Museum, as part of an ongoing, participatory art exhibition called The Possible, curated by local artist David Wilson.  Read more about this exhibit and how to participate on BAMs website.  We couldn’t have dreamed up a more perfect backdrop than BAMs spacious, industrial, concrete cantilevers or a more perfect team to work with.  A huge thank you to the entire Creative Growth staff and all the artists for letting us be a part of your vision.
