Goodwill Rock the Runway – Designer Cleo Faucette

When I first embarked on this journey with Goodwill Rock the Runway, I must admit I didn't know what to expect. I was first and foremost nerves because i would be competing with several students who younger designers in this arena.  I was also pretty nervous because I hadn't designed a couture piece in many years and wasn't sure if i still had my creative mind to do so.

Transition to Fall with Summer Dresses/Skirts in tow!!
