"Timeless Zeitgeist" THIS Saturday
It is my pleasure to announce the third annual Quail Bell fashion show. Our first fashion show took place at the VCU Barnes & Noble Richmond, Virginia in 2011. It was a humble event, one we had been commissioned to do. Quite frankly, we had no idea what we had gotten ourselves into. We were fortunate enough to get a popular lounge and restaurant's participation last year for our show "Forgotten Folklore." We even had the creator of Dirty Richmond, Brian McDaniel, MC the event. That's not to mention all of the fabulous stores and designers whose clothes wowed our audience.
Our relationship with Selba, the aforementioned restaurant and lounge, remains strong today. That's why we'll be showing there again this year. Now, two years after we stumbled through our first fashion show, we've gotten the hang of this 'catwalk thang.' A tremendous thanks goes out to fashion show director, Sidney Shuman Carter. Her assistants Lindsey Story and Jasmine Thompson also deserve a shout-out. Together, they dreamt up "Timeless Zeitgeist."
You may recognize Sidney's name from select Quail Bell Photo Tales, including our print project, Quail Bell Look Book. Sidney has contributed a few stories to our website, too. Maybe you read her piece on entrepreneurship in Abingdon, Virginia, or her list of the worst horror movies ever. She even wrote a piece about gnomes in folklore and pop culture. If you've enjoyed Sidney's work on QuailBellMagazine.com, you can't miss her fashion show. It'll be the go-to event in Richmond, Virginia this Saturday, October 12th. More here.
If you cannot join The Quail Bell in Richmond that night, consider joining us at Molasses Books in Brooklyn instead. As long as you spend your Saturday with The Quail Bell Crew, it's impossible to have any regrets.
You can quote me on that.
