Renita Kuhn Presents Her Creative Clothing

ART-TO-WEAR DESIGNER RENITA KUHN presented “From Barbie to Kimonos and Mud Cloth,” a trunk show of her exciting creative clothing, at DAFA’s meeting on Feb. 25, 2013. Guild members Vet, Michelle Knoerzer, Carol Regan, and Angie Vangalis served as models for the fashion show of colorfully collaged and brightly embellished tunics, kimonos, and vests. Renita’s designs incorporate a variety of beautiful fabrics, ranging from silks to mud cloth, and borrowing from a wide variety of ethnic traditions.
