Last night I attended a fab party for the Old State House of Design and Development (web, that is) I must admit going into it, I was unsure what to expect. On the invitation it said “attractions include a fashion show, charity art auction, live music, and an interactive experience highlighting technology and design”. Quite a lot going on all at once. The main attraction for me was, of course, the fashion show. To sum it up, the event was put on to showcase the creative work of the Old State and local talents, and to raise money for the Goss Michael Foundation. An added bonus was the music performances by DJ Guillaume (see pic after jump…love him!), and bands Smile Smile and Radiant. A very pregnant and adorable (she’s due in June) Amy Vanderoef and “surprise celebrity” host, Jeremy Anderson (of “The Bachelorette” fame) kicked off the fashion show that featured models from Campbell Wagner Runway clad in the latest by Commes des Garcon (compliments of Forty Five Ten) with avant-garde hair designed by the Shampoo Beauty Shop, make-up by MAC and styling by Tammy Theis. Models emerged from a giant ornate frame which displayed a screen that flashed images and testimonials from OS clients such as Woly Wake, Premier Transportation, Centre, and Bell Invito. Some models even carried mini-framed screens that displayed the various web designs. It was a multi-media extravaganza and the crowd was a refreshing mix of creative individuals. Jump for some photos (sorry for the quality, still mastering the iPhone).
