a little Spring "Sting" . . .


Soooo . . .
I am doing a little fashion show as a fundraiser at my son's school . . .
and I think it is going to be called . . .

Spring "Sting"

with some student photography . . . spring fashion from local designers . . .
and a little - rock and roll!!

 

it is based a bit on . . .

"The Sting"

as the school just happens to be doing a production of the movie in February.

The storyline takes place in the 1930's . . .
which of course - opens it up for all the vintage fashion
that just happens to be so popular right now!!


It will include . . .

News Boy Caps

along with a little rock and roll!!
 with a little influence from Springsteen and Sting!!

And of course . . .
one of my favorite designers will be there . . .

Maresa Patterson
along with her new spring collection from . . .

Stella Love!!

 ( Stella Love 2011 )

We hope to use some of the props from the school play . . .
and as I said above - we are planning on using lots and lots of hats for styling purposes . . .

We want to take a bit of inspiration from the movie, and the school's production of it . . .
as well as keeping it current with today's fashion trends!!


Oh - and on that note . . .
as much as I love women's fashion . . .
this is a boy's catholic school . . .
so we are going to make sure there are also some
great Men's fashion as well . . .

 I am asking the boys at the school to help with the modeling as well . . . so it should be pretty interesting!!!
I am sure they will all look handsome as ever in their News boy caps . . .

but more importantly,

I know that they will not only have fun . . .
but I also believe that they will feel great about it . . .
as it is a fundraiser - raising money for their scholarship fund . . . and in this current economy - it is needed more than ever!!

We will also be working with the photo class at the school to
try and get some great shots of local street fashion as well . . .
think - The Satorialist!!

And I also hope to incorporate the schools photography class to come and capture the spirit of the day!!!


( source unknown? )

So - if you know of any great local fashion designers
that would fit into the spirit of the day . . .
please send them my way!!

They can email me directly at - lizledorze@gmail.com

It really should be a ton of fun!!!
