Event description

Description

Heather Stevenson and Kristin Costa present Fall/Winter 2020 collections in theatrical runway presentations in an atmospheric space.


Doors open at 6pm
Runway presentations start at 7pm

Photoshoot opportunities with models will follow the show with multiple backdrops curated to go with the theme of each collection, and in the unique space picked for this event.

About the collections:

Kristin Costa presents “Book of Revelation”

Inspired by Revelation, the most surreal and apocalyptic chapter of the Bible, Costa explores concepts of omniscience and duality celebrated in Christian mysticism. As the world around us seems to shake and burn more with each passing day, this collection delves into the terrifying beauty of ancient doomsday predictions.

Having previously explored biblical themes including “Joan of Arc” in 2013 and “Magdalene” in 2018, this current return to biblical imagery will bring the great beasts, highest angels, and trickiest devils to life. Prepare for the end of the world.


Heather Stevenson presents “The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed in the Sun”

This collection is based on Thomas Harris's book Red Dragon(1981) which follows the events and imagination of a serial killer, Francis Dolarhyde who is striving to become the Dragon from William Blake's paintings(1805-1810) based on the Book of Revelations(roughly 95 AD). Some of the outfits are based on the book characters, some are based on William Blake's figures, and some are interpretations of Dolarhyde's inner world. In this collection I wanted to explore a one-sided view of power, revelation, and becoming. Throughout all of our lives, the urge to transcend one's own humanity, to become more, manifests in different ways, do you see?
