I have seen some fashion shows and then I have SEEN some fashion shows. But this one takes the cake! This particular "art-infused" fashion show was new to me as I had no prior knowledge of the featured designers. Or should I say artists.
After a quick peak in the dressing room, I realized this was where a stunning piece of art work + a hair and makeup team replicate that impressive piece of artwork on a model. Yikes! I was geeked!
So on this very wet and rainy night at The Watershed in Tempe, AZ, the mastermind-behind-the-event Kristine Nichole had a vision of transforming a model into a fashionable piece of art and hitting the runway. I knew the crowd was in for a real treat. The entire event was sure to create a little buzz around town with it's elaborateness. The Art Fashion Show was sure to be a phenomenal success!
Sadly, mother nature had other plans for the evening, as several people had to make a mad dash to grab the artwork from outside where the flood gates had opened up and poured.
After taking a moment to figure out Plan B, this artistic runway show was ready to go and was determined to be a good showing. I really enjoyed the uniqueness behind the concept of the show. The use of different mediums constructed by the design teams really brought the art to life. I really couldn't believe my eyes. The artistic likeness to the painting for some of the pieces were simply incredible.
