Imagine stepping onto the set of “Phantom of the Opera” meets “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and you would be forgiven for thinking ‘where’s the fashion show?’ The EXXESS Designs fashion show aptly titled “Of Vamps & Vixens” produced by AVENUE Models once again proved to be a creative and inspired partnership.
Held on the 7th of December 2008, the set at Royal Dreamscape was dark, brooding and exuded Gothic romanticism, the perfect venue to showcase the latest releases from EXXESS Designs creator, Layja Vidor. Revering the darker side of feminine sexuality, AVENUE Models Georgie Lyle, Shenandoah Saintlouis, Kryptonia Paperdoll, Olyvia Zenovka, Queenie Extraordinaire, Liane Maertens. Leah McCullough, Chamonix Boudreaux and Valeria Pienaar commanded the runway to great effect.
The audience was transported to a darker world and was captivated by a profusion of black velvets, lace, fishnets and leather, accessorized with tightly laced corsets, gloves, precarious stilettos and silver jewelry. “Vamps and Vixens” was an outstanding success and those present made their feelings known by the acclamation emanating from the gallery.
Treated to an amazing after party hosted by DJ Diaphoni Galicia, guests and models celebrated the brilliance of Lavja Vidor’s designs.
Produced and conceptualized by AVENUE Models’ CEO Rusch Raymaker in collaboration with builder and designer of Ztique, Zasa Rossini, “Vamps and Vixens” was another AVENUE triumph.
