On the first day of Columbus Fashion Week, I traveled to Copious. Copious is a five star restaurant that was hosting Cher gowns by Bob Mackie. At this event, I got to view different intricate outfits worn by Cher herself. It was a very rare opportunity to witness Mackie’s talents alongside designers, professional photographers, and even fans wearing old Cher merchandise. The viewing was accompanied by cocktails and hors d’oeuvres fit for a queen.
The attention to detail on the mannequins were impeccable.The designs were derived from many different styles pulled from different time periods and cultures that individualized her personality. Her performances are recognizable even today because of her clothing choices. It was a true connection between music and fashion.
