ONE LOVE: Art & Fashion Show
Marin (@mostlycolorsandglitter), co-owner of the local independent scrunchie fashion brand Bunchascrunch was one of the first models I worked with in Seattle. We were smoking blunts with her pitbull pup Harley before FeministFatal or Bunchascrunch had an audience. When I heard they were participating in their first fashion show, ONE LOVE: Seattle Art Exhibition & Fashion Show, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to capture this badass moment in local fashion and femme run small businesses! The show was held at Rhino Room on Capitol Hill, with the art gallery and reception upstairs complete with lipstick smudge worthy hors d'oeuvres and a custom chic pink grapefruit drink sponsored by Batch 206 Distillery. To reach the runway, many heels clicked down low lit stairwells to reach the basement space lined in floor to ceiling jungle foliage. The Yakima clothing brand and boutique WILDJAY organized the show and I loved how many femmes of color shone through as models, guests, artists and designers. WILDJAY curated a fantastic, community oriented fashion event. Hope you enjoy my shots and the art!!
