Pat, as many of you already know, appeared on and was the runner up on Project Runway’s Emmy Award winning Season II. If you haven’t already looked at our earlier post on her, click on her name above to see it. Patricia Michaels is a Taos treasure.
These photographs capture Patricia in a different setting, with her partner James Duran, both of whom stay closely connected to their Pueblo heritage and traditional ways. When we visited Patricia at her studio in early December, she was being very quiet because James was hunting.
Patricia of course, is dressed to the nines in one of her own stunning designs. This woman is a veritable dynamo and her accomplishments are myriad. For much more info on her, do visit her website linked below. In the meantime, enjoy these gorgeous shots of a winter day, in Taos.
