This gorgeous gown, from last year's show, was created by designer Ernesto Lopez out of blue jeans and vintage lace curtains. Here's you opportunity to study the intricate details of this lovely piece. It will be on display for at least a few weeks.
We'd like to pass on this excited event happening this weekend! Here's a word from our friends at Bloomington North High School:
In 1981, Middle Way House first opened its doors to shelter abused women and their children. Over thirty years later, they continue to empower women and help them start anew after facing adversity and abuse.
Our Fourth Annual Project Middle Way Fashion Show is taking place to raise money and awareness for an organization that has contributed so much to the Bloomington community.
The last three years have generated a lot of publicity, much more than we expected when we started. The first year, we had around 80 attendees. Last year, we had over 250! We are hoping this year will be even bigger so we can spread the word about Middle Way House, as well as support local businesses that have helped make this annual show possible. The show will take place on Saturday, February 28th at Bloomington High School North.
We will be serving refreshments before the event, starting at 6:00 pm where we will have a silent auction, wonderful hors d'oeuvres, and music from the band The Double Digits. The show will proceed at 7:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the door on the night of the show or reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are $5 for children under 12, $10 for students, $15 for adults. We are looking to raise over $5,000 this year. However you can help us would make a huge impact on Middle Way House and the Bloomington community.
For those of you that cannot make it to the show, please consider donating to Project Middle Way’s cause.

So excited to have such a nice set up for Discardia during the Bloom Artist Showcase event, happening today at the Bloomington Convention Center until 5pm.
Brave the snow and come out and see all of the amazing artists and beautiful work!
The new window display at Gather in the Fountain Square Mall will have you seeing red!
For the next month, you can get a close-up look at “Construction in Red" from the 2014 show, designed by Danielle Urschel and Jennifer Deam (modeled by Katherine Thomas, left). Plastic fencing and bits of hardware were used to create this amazing outfit.
February 6 - the day of the next Gallery Walk - is National Wear Red Day. The #bloomingtongoesred windows around town are in support of American Heart Association - Go Red for Women - bringing awareness to the fact that “heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, killing more than all forms of cancer combined. For more than a decade the red dress has been the symbol of women joining together to end heart disease. When you wear the red dress, you are raising your voice to save the lives of women.”
Gallery staff will wear red on February 6, and have some literature available.
