A Spring Fashion Social
Richmond, Armada, Intelligence, Network ( R.A.I.N.) is hosting a free 2012 Spring Fashion Social showcasing local and Virginia Commonwealth University designers at 10 p.m. on May 24 at Selba Lounge.
VCU students created R.A.I.N seven months ago with a vision to create a fashion forward movement in Richmond. The group aspired to take their vision out of the classroom and workplace, and began to coordinate with contacts experienced in their areas of interest – fashion design, photography, modeling, event planning, web designing, and advertising. R.A.I.N began to hold their own fashion shoots, fashion shows and social events.
It was November of 2011 when these four VCU students found R.A.I.N.- Steven Ramirez – a mass communications major focusing on creative advertising, Ava Stone – an international studies and political science major minoring in Spanish, Peter Pagan-a Mass Communications major focusing on creative advertising, and Chance Llanes-a fashion design major. They selected their original designers due to their dedication, passion, and commitment to creating pieces that were original, distinct, and personalized. They continue to promote and look for designers that encapsulate similar qualities of style.
Five various collections will be revealed at the show-one men’s line, three women’s lines and a women’s jewelry designer.
R.A.I.N.’s 2012 Fashion Social will present the works of Britt Sebastian, Harry Trinh, Kyrstal Vaquerano, Joelle Wade, and jewelry designer, Amber Kai.
Designer Britt Sebastian was among the first male designers that R.A.I.N. presented through an expansive photo shoot located in midtown Richmond. His design style replicates a mixture of modern Americana with a Civil War flare. Sebastian formally showcased his fall collection, Sebastian Apparel Company, in this 2012 Richmond fashion week.
Selba is at 2416 West Cary Street, Richmond, VA 23225.
Rachel Williams is a rising senior at Virginia Commonwealth University with a calling to be a voice to the voiceless; and passion is to bring gender equality and ethnic justice to the forefront of RVA.
