|"Gala" by Amanda Gross|
'We love that we have clothes by teenagers right up there on the runway with people who have shown in Paris. Everyone is so accommodating and the younger people get a sense of the possibilities open to them. Many of our Pittsburgh folks are doing quite nicely in the world market." Added to this is a sense of daring-- new definitions of fiber. When Team GA/GI learned the fashion show's host venue, The Pittsburgh Glass Center, was celebrating its 10th Anniversary, we asked them to put out a call for clothing made of glass. PGC's Paige Ilkhanipour and Heather Joy Puskarich took up the challenge.Within weeks, incredible submissions arrived; all of which certainly "break the glass ceiling" of what is considered wearable fashion today.
