Native fashion designer Patricia Michaels suffers setback with flood


August 8, 2018

Native fashion designer Patricia Michaels is trying to get back on her feet after losing much of her work in a flood last month.

Michaels told The Santa Fe New Mexican that she lost $70,000 worth of fabric, clothing, sewing equipment, photographs, art books and other materials after a July 23 rainstorm flooded her studio in New Mexico's capital city. The timing was terrible -- like many Native artists, she has been preparing for the huge Indian Market, which takes place next week.
