A fashion show and music concert showcasing and introducing local talent.
This project began with collaboration between Madison Ray and Elena Flores to create a new fashion line. Ray envisioned a casual style that embodied his drive, his passion, and his energy while Flores had the experience and know-how to actualize Ray’s vision. Flores' own line, La Bella Figura, began as a creative outlet for her drive to create great clothing for her peers and contemporaries. She fills a niche in Des Moines for handcrafted clothing that makes an impact. Being a trained seamstress, she strives to maintain a quality of her products paired with her creative eye.
The two of us want to create an amazing fashion show/rock concert hybrid that will showcase not only our talents but those of others in the local community with creative talent. We will be featuring the band Ladysoal from Ames and Body by Svec's painted ladies, and feature photography by Reina Wirtjes and Betsy Weiderstein. This show is also the debut of a new photobooth phenomenon, Photobomb Studios! We are proud to be able to support these artists who are homegrown talents.
