Event Recap: Fashion Arena | Traveling Fashion Showcase & Beauty Expo

This past Sunday, I was invited to attend the Fashion Arena put on by the Fashion Opera. The Fashion Arena is a traveling fashion showcase and beauty expo created by Darnelle Sanders (co-founder) and Antonio Wingfield (co-founder and creative direction/designer). The Fashion Opera combines avant garde/high fashion looks with theatrics and seeks to present the kind of merchandise, imagery and art that challenges convention and perceptions.

The event was held a the Georgia Fright Depo in downtown Atlanta and included beauty vendors from Skin care to fashion accessories and delicious desserts.

The fashion show opened up with a theatrical performance from designer Antonio Wingfield where he performed a spoken word piece while models were improving down the runway in avant garde pieces.

The fashion show featured designs from Dallas based designer Oriza Cooper with her Tokyo inspired Spring 2015 collection. Her collection was dope and included some pieces I would definitely mix into my wardrobe!

Designer Antonio Wingfield also debuted his avant garde collection as well...
