Fashionistas Roanoke is partnering with several local clothing stores to bring a series of fashion shows during the month of October. The first is to be held at Shades of Color, which is a locally owned clothing and accessories boutique located at Market Square in downtown Roanoke. Fashionistas will have a number of models on hand to show off the clothes and jewelry provided by Shades of Color. This will be an outdoor event, held in front of the store. Fashionistas would like to have three (3) photographers to document the event. They are also hoping to live stream this and the other shows that are scheduled for October so, if this aspect interests you, here's a chance to practice your skills. Come join us for the first of four October fashion shows!
The Original Mast General Store opened in 1883 in the rural community of Valle Crucis, North Carolina. Storekeepers tried to have everything the community needed… from cradles to caskets. As a general store, the Mast Store offers a variety of goods from fashion to fried chicken, cookbooks, and toffee to tents. Mast General Store has nine other locations in the Carolina's and Tennessee and and moved into the old Heironimus building at the corner of Jefferson and Church streets in 2020. Among their many other items, Mast General Store offers a clothing line which includes outdoor wear, hats, belts, casual wear, etc. The fashion show on Oct. 10 will feature many of these items, shown by models provided by Fashionistas Roanoke. Fashionistas would like three (3) photographers to document the event. As with the other fashion shows, they would like to conduct a live stream and the person handling the live stream can either be among the three photographers or separate from them. This will be a great opportunity for you to, not only practice your fashion photography, but also, to browse one of Roanoke's most unique new stores.
The Bird Cage Boutique is a ladies apparel and accessory shop. They feature familiar lines of clothing & jewelry as well as newer and less familiar items. They provide multi-generational items intended to appeal to all ages. This is the 3rd fashion show for the month of October and it will be held indoors. Once again, ladies from Fashionistas Roanoke will model the clothing and accessories provided by The Bird Cage. Fashionistas are again requesting three (3) photographers and would like to live stream the event, if possible. If you enjoy fashion photography or just like to photograph people, this event should be just for you. Join us!
As the title suggests, this is to be an in store fashion show, held at Frances Khan, near Tanglewood Mall. Clothes are to be provided by Frances Khan and will be worn by 10 models supplied by Fashionistas of Roanoke, people we've worked with before. Because of Covid, this will not be advertised as a public event however, if there are customers in the store they are welcome to watch the show. Fashionistas are asking for three (3) photographers from Exposure Roanoke. They also desire to live stream the event, making it a "virtual fashion show." So, if you've done that type of thing before, or you would like to acquire a new skill, this is the perfect opportunity.
