2016 'SHATTERED : Repose'


Thanks to all who helped make this an amazing succes! 2016 saw a major expansion to a full weekend of fashion runway activity for the spring show!

This years event consisted of (2) full runway shows and support events. Each show had a distinct theme that is part of an overall story that played out over two days. The first was Saturday Night, April 16th at 7:30. The theme, 'SHATTERED' featured national VJ V Owen Bush of Glowing Pictures who provided visual interludes between designers along with a vibrant musical program curated by show Music Director, Nate da Great and guest DJ Mizeyesis. The set had a hard edged look that morphed into an organic set for the following day. The second show 'Repose' was on Sunday Afternoon, April 17th at 3:00. It was a matinee show that featured a hanging gardens of Babylon theme. Each show provided an opportunity for retail sales at our signature POP UP! Shop.

2016 Spring Show Theme

SHATTERED : Repose | Breaking through the Corporate Approach to a Global Paradigm

This theme explores the concept of breaking through the current paradigm of the unquestioned value of a total global economy. A new insight inspired by an earlier way of relating to our goods and services looks back to an older model of regional sustainability. Though one cannot go back in time to economic models that are past, it is in the understanding that we can pull the best practices from the past and from current times to allow for a new and beautiful hybrid that can organically grow and adjust to regional needs and market conditions. This allows for a unique expression of regional identity and promotes the support of ‘A Makers Movement in America.’

The Aesthetic Element : An Unfolding Drama that Develops over the Course of Two Days

SATURDAY NIGHT: The explosive technical show. This is the shattering phase. It will be represented by hard edged objects suspended in the physical space. These objects will become a reflective surface for projections. Video artist V. Owen Bush will image map the church space and suspended objects to project individual and unique visions accross the volume of the space in a way that supports the overall theme of this explosive opening scene.

SUNDAY MATINEE: From the shattered remants a of a past paradigm grows an organic movement that is represented in horticultural elements that have replaced the hard edged objects of the night before. This is envisioned to reference the concept of the Babylonian hanging gardens. (Generously supported with the expertise of interior plantscape consultant Karen McGowan). The previous shards have now become diamonds sparkling above the stylized garden scene that play well to the natural daylight in the space, bringing back an organic harmony between the old and new.


Promo Shoot | SHATTERED : Repose
