Picture vintage. Now, completely reimagine it. That’s what happened to me after I attended the Fashion on the Fringe: Vintage Fringe, this past Friday with my sissy and Kim of kimberlyloc. We had a chance to see and tweet the truly amazing and fashion forward runway works of 10 upcoming and selfmade local designers. The designers were asked to interpret vintage from Victorian costumes to 80s hip hop. These inspirations were evident and stitched in every inch of fabric (no pun intended) as the models walked down the runway. We witnessed some amazing designers: Amanda Burkhart for House of Cochon, Ginger Bow Tie, Jessy Bergmann Inner Hippie, Little Shell Designs, Sablu, WM Couture, No Human Intentions, Linda Pop and Ziaha Marie.
Everyone loved the entire show, which included elements of hip hop from DJ Leonightus and Silent Empire! Keep reading to see some of the pieces that I connected with.
Outfit Combo: jacket: thrifted from Savers, shirt: H&M, shorts: Zara, shoes: Fendi and clutch: Eel Skin from Korea
Special thanks to Kim for letting me use the pictures she took on the runway!
I’ve been super obsessed with distressing denim (seen here), so when these looks from Sablu came out, it just fueled me to find a new denim item to re-make.
Those who know me well know that Alice in Wonderland is one of my FAV movies. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that No Human Intentions’ made me think about going to a mad hatter tea party… Loved it!
This playful and fun model was the perfect close to House of Cochon’s swimwear line and the show.
All in all it was one of the most entertaining shows I’ve been to this year.
