Well Well Well...directly on he heels of a whirlwind month (Lost in Space, Fashion Riot), Ruby Mimosa and I get the word that we'll be dancing on stage for the 3 nights Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are at Key Arena.
Yes, Ruby and I have played a minor role in the world tour since June. She and I are the Burlesque Gals in the vignette before "And We Danced". My oh my, to play our roles live. Why yes Sir, that sounds lovely!
Here we are, shimming and fanning Raven Bowie (aka Macklemore aka Ben Haggarty).
What an experience. The Band, Crew, Production Team, EVERYONE was so darn sweet to us, and made us feel like we'd been for the ride all along. What an experience
The Belgian Spiegeltent known as Teatro Zinzanni was the setting for this showcase of Northwest Design and Talent.
And what a Night it was: Sold Out!
Fashion ranging from avant garde to leather bags, wearable fashion to vintage Eleganza...there was literally something for everyone!
This magical evening could not have happened without all the lovely and talented people involved, from the designers and models, Hostess and Dj, cast and crew, and the delightful folks at Teatro Zinzanni.
Enough of me waxing poetic, check out some pics for yourselves!
