The Rainbow Connection

Horses are fashion designer Pat Dahnke's inspiration but it's a message from her son that guides her.

ByTonya Ratliff-Garrison

Pat Dahnke has an affinity for making women look like the most gorgeous versions of themselves.

"My whole focus is a feminine cowgirl," the Western-inspired fashion designer said. "I want her to look so good that a guy won't even hesitate to ask if she needs him to lift a bale of hay for her."

To achieve this, Pat mixes velvet and silk with lace, leather, beads, feathers and fur to create soft and flowing designs. She also adds bits of herself- a passion for horses, a love the Western lifestyle and faith to the promise rainbows bring.
