Happy Birthday QNDP! After a year of growth, setbacks, change, and most of all, creativity, we threw our biggest party yet: La Mode! Right around 200 people attended and enjoyed a red carpet, vendor booths, an art gallery, and most of all, three fashion shows. QNDP could not be more thankful to everyone who attended and for those who didn’t, here’s a recap:
La Mode began with guests entering on our red carpet just outside of Noah’s Event Venue, in case you were wondering where this fabulous event took place. Here’s some of our favorite looks:
While La Mode guests filed in, they were serenaded by a variety of musicians with different styles and songs. The open mic featured many artists, some pictured below.
Now for what you’ve really been waiting for: the fashion shows.
Our three shows kicked off with a fresh take on winter looks pioneered by designer Timothy Tuggle Jr of Black and White Industries. He employs plaid and fur in an innovative way, as well as toying with the original winter silhouette. In this show, he showed off not only his ability to produce novel looks, but also signature, classic tops for the average consumer. Here’s Black and White Industries:
Next up, our very own QNDP show. This line was conceptualized, designed, and sewn by one of our own: Jordyn Bookout. Subtly inspired by 70’s imagery, our show is colorful, bold, and includes feminine, masculine, and gender neutral looks. We believe fashion and style shouldn’t be determined by gender, and you should express yourself however you want. It’s all about how you rock it. Here’s QNDP by Jordyn Bookout:
After this line, we rolled out our merch. If you see something you like, head to the merch section of our website and buy it! Alongside our classic Cinema Girl design, we premiered our newest design created especially for this event, aptly titled La Mode.
After our own show, we decided that it would be important to not only showcase designers’ style, but also personal style. QNDP, since the beginning, has been about developing yourself through your own style and creating a space where we could document the art and fashion of our generation. To create a physical representation of this idea, we let each model dress themselves. We encouraged them to express their personality through their clothes, movement, and energy. Here they are:
We hope you enjoyed viewing the photos from our show, and we hope that if you came you had a great time. Thanks again to all of our sponsors, vendors, models, artists, and attendees. We hope to see you at the next one!
