Be Magazine


Sometimes the success of an event can be measured in the volume of following up that it requires. The MAINx24 Fashion Show @ The Choo Choo has yet to leave a void in my schedule. Images from the event have been flowing into the Facebook page and it has been a pleasure to share with you style blog postings from newbies Jank Is Swank and Wire Hangers. Yesterday found me in the studios of WUUQ recording a segment of Speak Out with Missy Crutchfield that will air Sunday morning betwen 9 and 10 on 97.3 and 99.3 fm.
Ms. Crutchfield runs Chattanooga's Department of Education, Arts and Culture. She is also a mom, and if that's not work enough, has begun with Melissa Turner their own exploration of paperless publishing, Be Magazine, so named for Gandhi’s famous quotation Be the change you wish to see in the world. It was the upcycled elements of our fashion show that caught the ladies' attention and Missy's ideas to engage the youth of our city jibed nicely with some that Sondra and I had been kicking around. Oh, and like all busy people, she had time to do one more thing. Thanks for sharing your sartorial sense, Missy.
