Last Friday we had the great honor of being a part of the Kearny Street Workshop’s KSW Runway: Celebrate Your Body. It was billed as an “alternative fashion and music show that pays homage to the creativity and plurality of the Bay Area.” The event was held at the SOMArts Bay Gallery and showcased collections by Bambie, Zuriel Bautista, Chartreuse, Kalakari Collective, Prince x Rose, and 31 RAX.
Our collection entitled Instinct and our models definitely looked the part. Decked out in fur, prints, crazy hair, and other signature funky 31 RAX pieces, the models began calling themselves “Children of the Wild.” The models slowly walked down the runway to pulsing tribal beats. We received amazing feedback from many of the attendees. “The slow walk really allowed me to see the clothes and observe all the details in each piece.”
In addition to the fashion show there were also musical performances including one by the Rice Rockettes, a drag revue. It was a truly great event that showcased the amazing and diverse talent here in the Bay Area. From running the workshop at the auditions to the night of the event, it has been a pleasure working with the entire KSW team.
