This September our Ready-to-Wear line made its debut on the runway at MakeFashion’s 2018 runway show at Beakernight. We showcased three sequin dresses from our sequin line, and our white lace dress.

The sequin dresses are now available for pre-order to ship in time for holiday events. All dresses are also available for rental.

In addition to the ready-to-wear line, founder Chelsea Klukas showcased a new version of her projection-mapping hat, and collaborated on a design for opera singer Michelle Minke. The show was held outdoors, including all of our setup, dressing rooms, and photobooth. Despite the cold weather, we had a great event.

See my video recap of the event here.
