Fun, Funky Fashion in Downtown Laconia Friday

LACONIA — On Friday, September 13 artist Grace Napoleon of Connecticut-based Folk Couture is bringing her funky up-cycled clothing for a Trunk Show at The Studio, 50 Canal Street in downtown Laconia.

From 2 p.m. until 7 p.m., her hand-sewn creations will be on display and for sale to anyone desiring a unique garment that reflects Napoleon's extraordinary eye for combining the unexpected into the fantastic.

Folk Couture is a regular at the SoWa Vintage Market in Boston, which is where the owner of The Studio, Melissa McCarthy, met the artist.

"I was with a friend, and we enjoyed pulling out dress after dress, ooh-ing and aah-ing," she says. In conversation she learned that Folk Couture would be at the Squam Arts Workshop Arts Fair on Saturday the 14th. "Grace said we should talk about a Trunk Show the night before," explains McCarthy. "I thought it would be a great chance to bring something different into downtown, even if it's just for one night." While most of the garments are women's dresses in all sizes, Napoleon also makes one-of-a-kind appliqued shirts for men, again, "something different".

To see some of Grace Napoleon's work on-line, visit Folk Couture on Etsy or on Facebook. To see it at its best, in person, visit The Studio at 50 Canal Street on Friday September 13 from 2 to 7 p.m. Call 603-455-8008 with questions or for more information.
