The Catching Dreams fashion show, hosted by Darlene and Amber Hatchett of Hatchett Creative Group, filled the Masonic Temple.

The theater was lined with tepees, crystals and earth-toned tapestries as the models walked onto the stage dressed in local, bohemian-styled fashion.

“It gave me chills, and I almost wanted to cry,” says Robin Plemmons, local artist and emcee for the fashion show, “but that’s what happens when you’re in to midst of people who put their heart and soul into their creations.”

Fashion and jewelry designers included Amber Hatchett Designs, Tracey McBride, Amy Day Dougherty of Nebula Beauty Lab, Patti Byrd of Feather’Root Artistry, Caroline Yarborough of Caro Designs, Megan Megan Escalante of The East Western, Elementality, Flora Asheville, Sarah Lambert of Uber Kio, Elise Olson of On the Inside, Erin Hoffman of Airweaver Apparel, Rachel Weisberg of RW by Rachel Weisberg, Royal Peasantry, Rebecca McClure Freeman of House of Fabric, Kati Foster of KatDog Couture, Charles Josef, and R. Brooke Priddy of Ship to Shore
