Tina Jolliffe is the New Face in Town

Uptown, downtown, around town. Cat just didn’t know what the weekend would look like. And anything is possible on a summer Friday. This was proven swiftly and deftly by a just-out-of-the gate apparel designer Tina Jolliffe, who threw an insanely successful solo premier show… by herself.

Jolliffe single handedly gathered more than twenty models, convinced the Aveda Institute to style the stable of beauties, dressed them each in one of her many cute dresses, and marched them out flawlessly to an exuberantly packed house at Emerald City, a warehouse venue on Santa Fe that is more used to seeing drums and amps than patterned halters and pumps.
