Want to see one of my absolute favorite designers EVER? She will be showcasing at Friday night’s show. I am also wearing one of her pieces in these photos. Mary Ambrose is a retired flight attendant who started designing for trashion shows where she found her niche of rubber inner tubes.  After 3 years with unconventional material, she has perfected her craft.  She won the 2017 Mini Collection runway show.  This year she is showing as one of MFW’s featured designers. I am not kidding when I say, her collection is ALWAYS a treat to see … mark my words, her designs will be seen on the likes of Lady Gaga or Beyonce. She is incredible!
