Anywho, here is what I created for the event.
My friend Armand was excited after my first fashion show at the Phoenix Comicon 2 weeks ago and started collaborating with me on some ideas he had for men’s fashions. The shirt and belt scarves are inspired by his sketches.
Colleen’s dress was sort of punk prom. Colleen’s dress turned out to be a bit of a challenge, but the dress turned out fitting her well, and she loved it. I think it got the most compliments from attendees as well and she rocked it!
Colleen is also rocking the custom Storm Trooper hair clips I made her.
I ended up making my outfit when I got home from work at 12:30 Friday afternoon!!! I put together a pleather shrug, and a dominatrix/geisha type of outfit, using borrowed elements from Armand’s and Colleen’s pieces to make the set cohesive.

I think the women behind me in that last picture were making faces at my boots… little did they know that a few designers behind me were some more hooker boots and heels just like them!
I learned some things from doing this show, like to always have a mix of runway music at the ready and to always have a generic script for the MC. We ended up walking to some cornball music (despite the majority of designers being alternative!), but this show went much more smoothly than the JFashion Trunk Show, so I’m sure my next show will be even better.
Hope that didn’t sound pretentious! -_-;
Big thanks to Armand and Colleen for modeling my fashions and a big thanks to Scott of Tharn Photography for taking pictures of the event!
Stay tuned for an interview with my friend and fellow designer Nic of Ghotibone!
