Eclectic Elegance Fashion Show x VOLARE Event Recap!

RM67’s Eclectic Elegance Fashion event was a success this past Saturday in Philly.

The Indigo Bleu Design & Culture Center, located in Philly’s University City neighborhood, was packed with spectators from the entrance all the way to the rear. The place started to fill rather quickly and unfortunately, some guest were even turned away due to the venue reaching capacity. For those who were able to grab a seat inside, they were in for a special treat. To begin with, they were greeted in the lobby area with custom artwork from the renowned street and graffiti artists, SEAL. Sitting atop what appeared to be a 6′ or 7′ ladder, draped in a custom gown, mannequin-style, was a beautifully beat model on display for all to see as part of the event’s interactive art exhibit along with a custom mural which featured a painting of a woman much resembling the ANTI-woman herself–Rihanna.

The lineup of designers for the evening included: Volare Menswear, Zinman Furs, Suede Square Kids, and the producer himself, Dah’mod Collins, of Rm67, who closed out the evening with a presentation of his line of the same namesake, “Eclectic Elegance.”‘

Along with bloggers and press, Hiiipower Radio in particular, who rallied designers and attendees on the red carpet were a handful of Philly’s fashion elite. Present was Marquette’s Tyron Perrin who hit the red carpet donned in all black, these Pink Lips designer Iris Bonner appeared in style as always and Casual Luxury’s own Butter Obama were all in attendance (btw the Casual Luxury custom crown headpieces were a fan favorite of nearly all the children (parents too) who stopped to chat with the designer before being seated inside).

“I love that there’s now an option for the plus sized man,” said host Laura Mazurek, host of Style and Empowerment Chat, speaking of Troy Adkins and his Volare Menswear line. “I absolutely love it!”

As the show wrapped, attendees mixed and mingled in the lobby area while talks of after parties and “where to head next” conversations lingered through the air. Check out some of the images down below.
