UMaine's 2nd Epic Fashion Show
{Local Event}

Last year, I took my daughter to the UMaine EPIC Fashion Show and Art Walk. The event celebrates local designers and is sponsored by Her Campus Maine. This year, proceeds go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Before the event started last year, the little daughter grabbed Angela Marcolini's hand (Angela is the education outreach coordinator for Innovation Engineering), and tried out the runway.
She's wearing boots from
Kemper's Cowboy Shop in Denison, Texas.
She loved photographer Katie Donlon, who photographed the event and is right behind her in this photo:

She talks about the HerCampus team who gave her a flower in a swag bag, and she hung it in her room. She retells every detail of the night quite often. For a year, she has been asking when she can go again. Finally, I can tell her:

Fashion and Intellectual Property

If you're interested in fashion and intellectual property (really, who isn't?), Johanna Blakley, Ph.D., from The Norman Lear Center, spoke on IP issues in the fashion industry earlier this year at the Penn Law Symposium. Watch the video online.

  1. I think Little Daughter is destined to steal the show every time --- she's a cutie!

  2. Seems to be an enjoyable fashion show. I went for our graduation party arranged by one of my friend at one of the affordable Chicago venues last month. Loved the quality food and drinks. Dj was awesome and venue interior was also unique. Overall the party was unforgettable.
