Magnolia Pearl...a discovery

 
For so many years I'd seen and admired the textiles and hand of 


...the lush natural textiles, the small flourishes...

Then, at the breakfast table in Round Top at Spring Antiques Week, when Jo Packham and I were both guests of Holly Kuhn and her Old Glory Antiques grand opening, Jo suggested I try wearing the clothing to really discover the "Magnolia Pearl" experience...


It was so interesting to put on these soft and loose garments, 
it felt utterly feminine...

So, Jo arranged for us to host a Magnolia Pearl Showcase at The Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck...
If you were there, you might have attended some of our chats at 11am each day where we explored the garments and had 2-3 of the 
Earth Angels' Art Girls RoadShow members model the clothing.
Here are some pictures of the days, the outfits, the fun we had in them...
off to the Fair where I worked in them and loved them made this a very wonderful experience...


I was unprepared for how wonderful the garments felt on....
how I could move in them...






And then Allie took over the box and played dress up ...










 
 



We really had such fun trying them all on...love the one size fits all...
...the clothing is like nothing else I have worn, and I have a much deeper appreciation for Robin's style and artistry now that I have experienced wearing the textiles, working in them, layering them with love and a reverence for texture.... 

thanks to Jo for making this possible...and thanks to Stella Show Management an Hearst for allowing us to show case these glories at the Rhinebeck Fair...

I just love the clothes. They really do feel wonderful on as well as make you feel feminine. I will have to take a look at the website to see the new styles. Everyone looked wonderful in them! Thanks for sharing Jen!
