Smashin’ Fashion™ show challenges convention and presents fashion in a broader way. It’s a fashion show, re-imagined using multi-media, social media, and updated twists on the typical fashion show elements of runway, models, stylists, program, red carpet, and even the audience. The show takes place on July 31st at The Art Institute of Houston.
Models will be real-world-sized people trained to walk and pose like pros in my Runway For The Rest Of Us™ model workshop. Styling will be done by ten local fashion stylists, competing for $1000 in cash in Houston’s Best Stylist Competition™. Audience members can co-create the show too by posting their street style and personal take on fashion trends to Instagram using the #SmashinFashion…their postings will become part of the runway experience.
