KC's Peggy Noland has been to New York, L.A. and back

"Here's the thing," she continues. "This is just my first time at New York Fashion Week. And there will be many more times — I'm sure of it. This was just one blip on my radar as an artist." Plus, Noland says, she met with Engman at the NAC, and they "hit it off." As her career so far has shown, a simple connection like that may well pay dividends sooner rather than later.

Noland doesn't have time to dwell on the show or dream of future Fashion Weeks, though. Her deadline to finish costumes for the Owen/Cox Dance Group's ballet The Golem is coming up. Noland needs to finish nine outfits for dancers, plus one for a 10-foot-tall puppet. It will be the biggest piece of clothing she has ever made.

"On to the next project!" she says. Then she goes back inside the baby-blue house and upstairs to her bedroom to begin sewing again.
