Jacqueline, extended an invitation to this years SeArts Wearable Art Runway Fashion Show shortly after the release of my cookbook, “Gifts Of Gold In A Sicilian Kitchen With Sista Felicia, Harvest” this past August. Thrilled and honored to take part in this wonderful event I immediately excepted her invitation, and started designing 2 pieces for the show. The first piece to hit this years runway was made from recycled drink coasters, embellished with the GoodMorningGloucester.Com “My View of Life On The Dock” Homie logo.

The second wearable art piece made and featured in the lattest Art New England Magazine  March/April issue was inspired by the Gifts Of Gold my grandparents gave on to me that sparked my passion for cooking and my passion for continuing to keep my Sicilian family traditions alive for future generations.  The” Gifts Of Gold” flapper style dress was carefully hand swen together by my mother Pat Ciaramitaro and I, using fishing twin and 10 lbs. Metalic Gold  Ziti Pasta. The dress was modeled by my daughter Amanda Mohan. Linehan’s Photography, photo, of Amanda painted in metallic gold from head to toe modeling the “Gifts of Gold Pasta Dress” is featured in their March/April 2014 issue on page 29.

During yesterday visit to Art New England Magazine headquarters in Boston,  Rita and Judith were shocked to learn…( click see more for story & behind the scenes photos)
