DIPTYCH, in collaboration with Hyperreal Film Club and Co-Lab Projects, announced today its next high fashion runway show: “DIPTYCH II.” Three local fashion designers – Melissa Taylor, Ida Béhjat, and Samantha Fabry – will come together to showcase new lines at Austin School of Film on Saturday, May 5th, 2018.
Bigger and bolder this time, DIPTYCH II will transform the raw warehouse space at the back of Austin School of Film into a high fashion extravaganza.
The production team is large and includes – along with the three designers – a group of 20+ models, multiple event producers, make-up and hair artists, set designers and build-out crew, DJs, video artists, a hospitality team, administrative and marketing help, and members of Hyperreal Film Club. With a turnout of 400 at the first DIPTYCH event in Nov. 2017, DIPTYCH looks to expand its reach even further this time.
The evening will begin with doors, drinks, and music at 8PM. The main event (9PM) will showcase three breathtaking runway segments with local models wearing each designer’s original collections. A post-show celebration for participants, hosts, and guests will rage until midnight.
DIPTYCH’s three designers are ambitious in both their craft and approach to exhibition, with an eye toward creating a high-fashion runway show as a spectacle, a statement, a happening. They are intentional about creating an immersive environment and a collaborative feel, one where local event producers, artists, models, and more can cut their teeth in a professional yet accessible atmosphere. DIPTYCH is more than a fashion show. It is an advocating body for new and diverse voices in fashion; it is an increasingly well-connected platform that can market and promote adventurous and creative new work; it is a lab where talented individuals can try out new ideas in design and creation of unforgettable experiences.
