When i walked into the gallery i noticed how colorful the room was. There were a variety of sizes in clothing and different hand made items. As i walked through the gallery i noticed baby clothing, socks, handbags, and even necklaces all with a different mixture of colors.
Patricia work was made to show that her creativity was not limited to only clothing. I really enjoyed Patricia’s art work. The different colors in the shirts and dresses were amazing. My favorite park of her work were the socks. The socks were so colorful and looked fluffy and conformable. I was amazed by her work and would have wanted to purchase one the ponchos she had on a mannequin in the left corner of the gallery. Overall, i enjoyed her fashion design.
