Patricia Michaels Hard Rock Fashion Show

November is officially over (well, by a solid week), and here’s the beginning of some of the reviews of the Native fashion events that happened in the past 30 days –

Patricia Michaels in New Mexico:
Taos fashion designer Patricia Michaels participated in a fashion show and fundraiser for New Mexico Tribal Libraries at Isleta Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on November 6. Michaels volunteered her time to support this important initiative.

She let me and my friend Keith Grosbeck backstage to get some pics (and I must say, backstage at a PM Waterlily show is very calm, organized and professional). We also sat in the front-row for the runway show.

Here’s what we saw:
