Showcasing work by modern designers inspired by the fashions of the 19th century, this fashion presentation will occur in front of the Old Stone House on Sunday afternoon. Attendees will observe the diverse ways that antique fashion informs modern works by textile artists, clothing, and accessory designers currently active in the fashion industry.

Fashion show veteran, author, and performance artist Ashley Rogers has assembled an eclectic sampling of some of the more outstanding new contributors to the scene.  This year’s fashion show will highlight the latest trends in historically inspired design. We also have a special guest MC from the Steampunk community, none other than the Emperor of the Red Fork Empire himself!


Featured Designers I Do Declare

I Do Declare

Started by Kelsey Hine, I Do Declare has been successfully running for years, ever seeking to expand its potential. It is a brand that creates Lolita and Rococo clothing in the royal style, and all the articles are handmade. Other inspirations include but are not limited to the Americana aesthetic and the beauty of structure, such as is found in armor. Above all, I Do Declare emphasizes fashion as a platform: a declaration, so to speak — not just about wardrobe, but more importantly about the person wearing it.

Redfield

Redfield

Redfield has been seen on many runways across the east coast, such as the Templecon and the Steampunk World’s Fair. She has even venturing to Wisconsin to take part in the Teslacon fashion show. She has been studying and researching the history of clothing for years, looking at the trends that blend today’s fashions with those of yesteryear.  She freelance designs and takes commissions when she is not working as a seamstress at a magnet art school in Connecticut. This year has been big for Redfield, she was a runner up in the RAW semi finals!

Jeanne M. Thompson

FASHION

Goth Fae / Steampunk Dollie offers an intriguing blend of Steam-Goth and Victorian Retro-Futurist styles, accented with a splash of sideshow spice.  Designer Jeanne M. Thompson acquired her technical abilities from her seamstress Grandmother and Mother, then studied at FIT and Parsons,  followed by working many years in the NYC fashion industry. Her clothing and accessory designs are influenced by her lifelong personal love of all things Victorian, her theatrical costuming experience and her many years as a purveyor of antique textiles & vintage clothing.

For  the 19th Century Extravaganza some of Jeanne’s Midnight Sideshow designs, which emphasize the vibrant colors of vintage Coney Island, will be on the runway.  This collection includes both newly designed, discordantly colored patchwork designs and one-of-a-kind, deconstructed/up-cycled garments, all of which conjure up images of a seedy Victorian seaside carnival. All of Jeanne’s designs reflect her love of vintage style and her slightly twisted sense of humor.

 





This is an E.O.I. (Event of Interest) meet up. As such it is not planned, organized, or hosted by NY Steampunk-Artists and Enthusiasts who assume no responsibility for its content. (However we really think you would have a great time at it!)
