On Wednesday night, Fade to Light hosted their fifth fashion show in downtown Portland. A night full of amazing styles and incredibly talented designers, this show was a can’t miss. Kristy McInnis, one of our V+V contributors, attended the show with our new digital strategy intern, Chantelle Thatch (official announcement coming soon!).
Krisy’s sharing the inside scoop:
“A night full of gag-balls and live snakes slithering down the runway, Fade to Light did not disappoint. This show marked the five year anniversary of the first Fade to Light show and all the designers brought their A game. With second row seats, Velvet + Vinyl was right in the action and accompanied by fashion bloggers, personal stylists, model scouts and the friends and family of the featured designers.
Each line brought something unique to the show with cutting edge designs and an assortment of stunning models. Culty used men in drag, bondage accessories and live reptiles to stop everyone in their tracks. To say this was an unexpected approach was a total understatement. It was brilliant.”
We were also jazzed to see our gal pal Sarah Donofrio of One Imaginary Girl. Through the use of playful, ready-to-wear prints, she tastefully shared her signature style. Of course this included her handmade skirt composed of vinyl pieces. ALL THE HEART EYES.
Here’s a glimpse of the evening through Kristy’s camera lens.
Thanks to our friends at Fade to Light for the amazing show! We can’t wait to attend the next one.
