Women’s Wilderness Fashion Show Features Athena Garments
Apr 26, 2013 10:24AM
Now any woman can become a flower in the wilderness with a handmade hiking skirt from Athena Garments, which is producing a fashion show from 7 to 9 p.m., May 24, in support of the Lacey Jarrell Foundation, at Ward 6. Active women of all ages will model hiking and biking skirts and other Athena fashions, and Athena Outdoors is donating 25 percent of sales to the foundation.
Robin “Athena” Hall started sewing with her mother and grandmother on a Singer treadle sewing machine on a dairy farm in northern New Hampshire. An active backpacker, hiker and bicyclist, Hall longed for colorful and versatile active clothing for women.
In 2010, she began making her own clothes to complement her love of the outdoors. Soon after, her active women friends began asking for their own hiking and biking skirts. In 2012, Hall added an Athena Southwest line, and exhibited in France with the Paris-San Carlos Art Exchange.
Location: 3202 E. 1st St. For more information or make an appointment, call Hall at 520-203-7010 or visit AthenaOutdoors.com.
