My first fashion show was by Camp Vida at the Blue Star Art Complex. The venue opened at exactly 7 pm and loud music began poured out from the showroom. The three rows of seats on each side of the runway filled up very quickly. With the purchase of the VIP package I was given a gift bag, a reserved seat for the show, early access, and a ticket to the VIP lounge. The room was buzzing and filled to the brim with food, drinks and boutique stands, all of which were local businesses. A mesmerising and interactive art installation was featured in a side room; it was the perfect place for guests to take selfies and promote the fashion show! Vida is breaking the rules of fashion and promoting body positivity in the industry. All of the models were wearing outfits designed by smaller local fashion designers.The environment was electrifying, and the diversity of the models was the cherry on top! By the time the show was over, the energy was so high that nobody knew it was almost midnight! Camp vida hosted an amazing show while supporting small business and promoting body positivity. Fashion is a form of art we can wear and use to express ourselves; as artists ourselves, we should always try to support local creators like Vida Fashion.
