The craftsmanship of the corsets in the Le Fleurs Du Mai line was almost shocking, knowing that this multifaceted girl seemed to have made these two lines in under a month of time. From the other designers, there was even a lingerie line on "real bodied" models, which was a pleasant surprise to most of the crowd, and the highlight of the show was when art studio owner and sculptor Brant Kingman went onstage clad in heavy handmade armor along with his circus troop of models. It was hard to keep your eyes of their gyrating hoola-hooping
and twirling glowsticks. These people were literally on fire.
Also performing in this "variety" show were four local bands that played on stage between segments: All The Pretty Horses, Dark Dark Dark, River Bottom Suckerfish, and International Espionage. I couldn't have imagined a better way to recover from too much tofurkey and family on this Thanksgiving weekend. Can't wait until next time.
