Fashion Show & Designer Competition
Back for another year of amazing fashion, art, and star-studded guest performances, Project NunwayLA returns with this fabulous annual event for charity -
An Outrageous Fashion Show & Designer Competition!
A benefit for - BEING ALIVE LA & LIFE GROUP LA - hosted by the Los Angeles Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, this years event takes place during LA Fashion Week in the Historic District of Downtown Los Angeles at The Mayan Theatre. With a new year and a new location, Project NunwayLA is ready to entertain sold out crowds again, with The Mayan Theatre as a lavish backdrop to this one-of-a-kind fashion show and designer competition.
In 2014 the LA Sisters hosted this Sold Out event to great fanfare, raising $15,000 for local West Hollywood charities!
Project NunwayLA brings the tradition of San Francisco's Project Nunway to Southern California. Project NunwayLA is a high concept fashion show inspired by The Sisters of San Francisco, the late cinema master Federico Fellini's 1972 film "Roma", and Bravo's "Project Runway".
Each year and in the tradition of Project Runway, Project NunwayLA challenges Designer Contestants to create outrageous fashion based on a theme. This year's theme: TAROT inspires designers to embody the mysteries of the Tarot, while bringing to life avant-garde visuals, creativity, and over-the-top fashionable art.
Designers are encouraged to create outfits with little to no cash, putting their creative visions to great task, while stretching the possibilities beyond the obvious. Fashion Designers vie for the Top Designer Award - a prize of $500 - donated to the charity of his/her choice & bragging rights as TOP DESIGNER!!
Designers are teamed with models - the always outrageous Los Angeles Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Sister models bring the designer creations to life while hitting their best stride in a runway show that celebrates extravagance, outrageous, thought-provoking imagination and art. Over 25 designers, including well-established professionals, Hollywood veterans, Emmy-winning makeup artists, and fashion savvy renegades will create one-of-a-kind fashionable art for Project NunwayLA.
Project NunwayLA is also a fundraising event with a focus on providing funds for Southern California charities that support HIV\AIDS educational services and outreach programs to communities in and around Southern California.
