This year the Dark Garden Fashion Show January 21st at the 12th Annual Edwardian Ball is designed by Kalico DeLafay of Dollymop Designs and Holly Bobisuthi. The show is inspired above all by Edward Gorey and dreams of crows in the rain, smoke and shadows, Dresden ironworks, Thai neck rings, Grecian columns cracked where the tendrils of vines have pushed through. This show promises high drama and quirky elegance, and many amazing and new Dark Garden corsets.
With a education in fine arts sculpture and a back ground jewelry design Kalico DeLafay of Dollymop Designs creates hard core romantic one of a kind accessories including magnificent hats, feather fascinators, cravats and wrist wraps that are available in the Dark Garden boutique. She is also the first Dark Garden Associate Designer having created our fabulously successful Dollymop corset line. Her couture garments are available to order.
Holly Bobisuthi is an accomplished fine art metal smith and textile artisan working primarily by hand on her Teahorse line of hair adornments available in the Dark Garden boutique. This show will debut her impressive skills and a dress maker, accessories maven and designer. Her couture garments are available to order.
The show will again be directed by the fabulous B. Todi who brings her playful and delicious theatricality and dance expertise to this not to be missed yearly treat! Exotic, erotic music design by the amazing alchemical Kerri Pidnow as well as an outrageous gaggle of hot models are sure to delight and dismay...
