Novelty Fashion: Something Pretty, Ballet and Bridal

Last night we celebrated the end of Ithaca Fashion Week at the Dewitt Mall with DJ ha-MEEN, Breathe, Petrune, Handwork, Sunny Days of Ithaca, Ithacamade, Sew Green, Trader K's, Fibers, Toko, Pastimes, Indigo Rose, Connie Shipos Designs, Cat's Pajamas, Body Gear, Benjamin Peters, Arnold's Flower Shop, Ithaca Flower Shop, Bool's Flower Shop, Anastasia Mosher-Arnold MUA, Heather Skye Photography, The Downtown Ithaca Alliance and so many more!

Jamie Love Photography came and snapped pictures (a special surprise)!!! We were excited to work hard curating 'Novelty Fashion: Something Pretty, Brides and Ballet,' with The Cat's Pajamas (for little Gia B's flower girl and fairy wear), Benjamin Peters (mens wear), Connie Shipos (jewelry), Bool's Flower Shop, and Body Gear (dance wear)!  For Gee June we showcased our bridal separates complete with body suits, bridal jackets, lace tops, and tulle, chiffon, and organza skirts! 

We collaborated with Sylvia Allinger of Body Gear to outfit her windows in Gee June Bridal organza and tulle skirts with lace bridal jackets to help promote our show- Go see them through the end of May at Body Gear on The Ithaca Commons!  The second set we helped produce was entitled 'Downtown Style!'

'Downtown Style' represented the culmination of Ithaca fashion! We had tie dye, screen printing, handmade bags, boho, classic men's wear, reused fashion, and so on! Gee June had model Maddi Marie push a vintage bike from the Tompkins Bike Share decked out with a flower spray from the Ithaca Flower Shop up the runway!
