Review: Rochester Fashion Week, Saturday Show

The Height of Fashion

The height of this fashion show was it's fabulous close-r, Embrasse-Moi, who sent whimsical and bridal lingerie down the runway with taste and elegance. Clearly, they saved the best for last to keep people seated

If I didn't know better, I would have preferred to shop out of the Futurepointe costume wardrobe rather than off the actual vendors. Futurepointe, a vibrant, urban contemporary dance company in Rochester, was the heartbeat of the runway, gracing intermission with their usual lively, intoxicating performance. The perfect mix of retro glam and down-home, soul-healing creole, I felt like I was watching a retro inspired mardis gras parade. Definitely, the highlight of the show.


I must mention that one model, especially, captured out attention like a starlet. She was a picture perfect runway walker with petite boyish features and the grace of a 1930s MGM Grand film star. I'll have to get back to you on the particulars, because there was no model listing..

but I am pretty positive this glory goes to the effervescent, Miss Nina Lutz.
