Generally, I attend a runway show to see a designer’s new collection. Ironically, last Friday’s Zivity Striptease Fashion Show & Charity Auction presentation was billed as much for the clothes and accessories as it was for what was not-so-coyly hidden underneath. [Read more...]
No you won’t see any Galápagos tortoises walking the runway at Sundays’ Evolution Fashion Show at Roe, but an eclectic display of fashion intended to promote the designers and their unique pieces with the theme of fashion throughout the ages. Gail B. Shrive presents this bi-yearly event, Evolution and is changing the way we San Franciscans treat our designers.
For once, the spotlight is on them, and I’m sure glad it is as their work deserves the attention.
“Each designer has been asked to select a historic time period and create works of art that they feel best exemplifies the fashion of that era. One designer is working with turn of the century, Japanese inspired, couture of the time. Another focusing on the fab disco times of the 70′s and another bringing an original flare to the hats and hair dressings of both periods,” said Gail of Evolution.
Each designer hand-picked their own models and are going all out when it comes to styling their collections. Expect to see incredible hair and make-up to enhance the whole look and essence of their time period. Some of the most talented garment makers are ready to be seen and heard for who they are and let their pieces speak for themselves.
I’m more than excited to model for Atussa Couture, but also happy to see GB Shrive Designs, Invisible Hero Industries, Miss G Designs, Ashton Miyako and Allison Rutherfurd of Red Haute Jewelry. These designers run the gamut from dress makers to hat makers to artists and are all completely fabulous. Find me if you can amongst the other lovely models Sunday night at Roe.
