Mary Rockcastle // Look What Mary Made

Few more additions to the show are local makers Mary Ellen Hill and Mary Rockcastle. Ms. Rockcastle's pieces will be lively, offering up a kitschy outlook on pop culture. Ms. Hill will be showcasing a wild collection including coats in wondrously constructed, generous volumes and deconstructed dresses that reaffirmed Mary's articulation of the feminine mystique.

Josean Vargas

Also returning for this year's event will be designer Josean Vargas, of J. Vargas Designs. Vargas's Rochester dedicated collection will focus on elevating urban wear to high fashion status with its chic, sexy and stylish silhouettes.

Lauren Elizabeth Alberque // Lolita Fashion

Another amazing addition to the show is "Lolita Kei": a glimpse into the alluring world of Lolita fashion. An entire showcase put together by Lauren Elizabeth Alberque (an archivist at RIT) and Tempest Paige (owner of Sweet Poison Cupcake Boutique).

A cocktail reception will precede the show at 3:00 PM and the runway show will commence at 4:30 PM. Limited VIP seating is available for $65 and general admission is $35. Tickets are available HERE.
