The eventful Halloween weekend in Detroit included a fashion costume showcase held by Metrotimes magazine at midtown’s Majestic Theatre. The first ever, Fashioned in Hell, featured Halloween themed garments down the runway by local designers & boutiques like Get-Up Vintage, Camilo Pardo, Femilia Couture, Peace.Love.Spandex., & much more (listed below). The event also provided an appropriate line-up of entertainment that included a belly dancer, burlesque dancer, fire hoola, & sword swallower. You’ll also see FIN’s sponsor-themed Fuze dress worn by Detroit’s Gossip Girl, Lauren Stroud. Some of my favorites on the runway had to be Kelly Kapowski & Jessie Spano from Saved By The Bell.
A number of the crowd was what you would expect to be in fashionable costumes. Designer, Angela McBride, was a “Motherboard” where her outfit included the dopest bubble-wrap cardigan, hand-made by her comrade, designer, Sarah Lapinski. I kept a count of how many Michael Jacksons, Nicki Minajs, & Lady GaGas I would see that night.. Total tally was MJ = 2, NM = 0, LG = 7.. & yes, the Lady GaGa meat dress was in the house (photo not captured).
