Earlier this month, Reve, a local event production company, produced its first series of fashion events sponsored by DC Interiors and Renovations. The Strut. Madison Fashion Series showcased local designers, boutiques, retailers and beauty professionals.
“I felt there was a need for something different in Madison,” says Ann Marie Martin, producer of Strut. “My Strut. team and I wanted to bring the glamour and fun of New York Fashion Week to Madison, WI. I like to say we’re ‘bringing Madison Avenue to Madison, Wisconsin.'”
And lucky for us at MODA, we were invited to be a part of the fun. Two uniquely different runway shows took place throughout the week of February 25 through March 2. The first, ‘Catwalk, Couture & Cocktails’ took place at the Monona Terrace Convention and Community Center and featured a number of of stunning creations.
Saturday’s show at the UW Hillel had a more ready-to-wear feel and featured garments from local retailers. Following the show, there was a pop-up fashion market where looks straight off the runway were available for purchase.
MODA would like to thank Ann Marie Martin, Jacci Kosewski and the rest of the Strut. team for the opportunity to attend a number of these fabulous events! Check out our photos from the runway shows below. Which look was your favorite? Comment below!
