We have are thrilled to share this news with you all!
A Garnish Gal is on her way to the runway, Project Runway that is! Michelle Lesniak Franklin, team member and friend, has been selected to compete on Season 11 of Project Runway set to air on Lifetime January 24th. We are beyond excited to tune in and root for her as she takes on the competition.

Michelle took a chance and left behind a decade long career in the wine industry to follow her true passion, design. She has since been recognized as one of “3 Designers to Watch” by The Oregonian and has continued to woo fashionistas with her line, Au Clothing, that, in Michelle’s words, “celebrates the smart, sassy, articulate, nerdy woman.” Since she joined Garnish in May, we’ve had so much fun working with Michelle and being privy to her extraordinary creative energy and rock-star sense of style!

Michelle’s bold and edgy aesthetic has brought a wonderful spirit to Garnish’s collaborative design process. From what we’ve been able to sneak a peek at online, it’s said that this season will feature more team challenges than ever before. Michelle is a strong team player. Can we just say that we are super confident that she has what it takes to go far in the competition. Let’s hear it for Michelle!

Must be nice to have a royal budget for clothes!
Ok, so I wasn’t exactly caught up in the whole Royal Wedding until my mom came to visit and brought my sister-in-law’s issue of People Magazine with the 72 page spread on the big event. Now, I must admit, I’m a bit smitten with Kate and her classic style. Anyone who can rock the numerous hats she has worn in the past month (both literally and figuratively) has my vote.
