The show entitled ‘Mighty Aphrodite’ was held at Wonderbox, a back alley photography studio. The show’s concept was to bring the backstage to the forefront. Models had their hair and make up done, were dressed, and styled, all while attendees watched. Jones used area boutiques like Redeem, Tari, It’s Vintage Darling, and Palace 5ive to bring his vision to light. Local jewelry designer Regina Ray was also on hand to showcase her fall collection.
There was also no runway at this fashion show, Jones instructed models to climb steep scaffolding and ladders to show off looks. DJ Spinser Tracy provided the beats for the night, while local fire eater Leah Golden kept the crowd engaged throughout the event. Attendees also saw food demonstrations from an area chef, sipped on cocktails provided by Belvedere Intense, and witnessed live mural painting. It was truly a multi-sensory event like nothing I’ve witnessed before. Amazing.
