Live Shows This Weekend! May 1= CYCLES : May 2= INFERNO and Open Studios MAY 3!
I am whirling and inspired by the story of Persephone. This Friday + Saturday at midnight, in two different locations, in two different ways, I will tell a double story. Skin, Bones, Flesh, Love, Death, Sacrifice, Silence, Remembering..... Through all of this the Heart Remains.
Into the darkness spiraling downwards into the heart of the Earth, past masks and illusions, past flesh and blood, bones and marrow into the core, what is left in the nothingness? From this dark silence of the void bursts forth all life. Waiting. With bated breath. Remembering. To being again from now.
THE LIVE SHOWS:
MAY 1 FRIDAY DOOR AT 9PM RUNWAY SHOWS START AT MIDNIGHT
Opel Productions and Syd Girls celebrate their 7th anniversary by presenting their annual fashion and music event "Designer Showcase" on May 1st at the Mezzanine here in San Francisco.
This show celebrates fashion in a very unique way by presenting local designers in a midnight runway and showcase their work. The theme is based on cycles that represent changing in time and as a symbol of re-birth in many cultures. With this, Opel, Syd, designers, and guests are celebrating merits, creativity, and ideas that'll be a part of the future. Inspirations come from classic styles, flirty attitude, anime costumes, modern silhouettes, lace and trims, and playful details gather up distinctive items like feathered hats and hair pieces, jewelry, vivid clothing, and costume garments come to take part of an outstanding all-nighter show.
Designers include Ella Mental, Little Red Sparrow, Kayo, Dandelions & Dean, miss velvet cream x Estar x Fluidance, Dimitri & Devora, Vindyco, and Invisible Hero Industries.
Featuring Stanton Warriors as musical guests to pump up the room with energetic hip-hop funk.
The event will run from 10pm to 4am and the runway show will promptly begin at 12am so come early, enjoy the site, meet creative and artistic people, have a couple drinks, dance your bootie off, and enjoy the show!
