Emerging Designers at OC Fashion Showcase
By runwayjunkie on April 24, 2012
This past weekend, Runway Junkie attended the OC Fashion Showcase and saw many beautiful designs for a great cause!
OC Fashion Showcase is an annual fundraising event for Working Wardrobes, an OC based non- profit organization that helps underprivileged men and women get back on their feet and into the workplace. This event brings together fashion and local businesses to support their cause.
The first night's fashion show theme, "Beach" showed off amazing surf, swim and casual beach wear designs.
BOLD Girlz was the first designer of the night. B.O.L.D girls stands for Brave Original Loving Daring. This is a local company donates 10% of their proceeds to charities that empower women. Fantastic to know great minds think alike!
Their designs shown were casual beach. One of their identifying features is a G shaped peace sign.
The second designer was Confiance. Confiance (meaning confidence in French) is an LA based company that emphasizes diversity. Confiance has T-shirts and hand made jewelry inspired by other cultures. Many of their designs have phrases written on them in various languages. Each item even has a handmade logo!
Brit Boy Swimwear is a designer that embodies British culture in each piece. Many have British symbols such as the British flag. The swimsuit pictured below has parts of the British flag lining the edges.
The last designer of the night was Borreca Swimwear. With their bright colors and daring designs, these swimsuits would be a showstopper anywhere.
Stay posted for reviews from Friday and Saturday night's events!
