Showcasing the Future of Fashion in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky (9/17/13)—The Lexington Fashion Collaborative’s 5th Annual Future Of Fashion Show was held last weekend at the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center in Lexington.

Designers showcased two outfits of their choice to a panel of judges. At the end of the three-day event awards were presented. Third place winner Alyce Grover designed two outfits from wool that she got from her own sheep farm. Second place winner Masha Titievsky had her models wear two different dresses, both unique and vibrant in design. The first place winner, 15-year-old Naomi Connor, created two outfits that were “fantastical and theatrical,” which provided a show for everyone there to watch.

Second place winner 22-year-old Masha Titievsky said that her biggest challenge throughout the whole process was keeping it simple.

“Editing down to the essentials is the mark of a true designer in my opinion,” said Titievsky. “Sometimes you pocket your favorite ideas for later projects, when these ideas might be more appropriate or more powerful alongside other ideas.”

The two designs that Titievsky used for the fashion show were inspired by nature. The nouveau curves and a futuristic aesthetic is what she said brought the two designs together.

“The mint green cutaway jacket was inspired by insects' lightweight and elegant frames,” she said. “The watercolor print dress was inspired by a babbling brook at night with its pebbly leather, print and dark color.”

Titievsky said that her favorite part of the fashion show weekend was seeing how everything came together.

“Everything was so hectic but when it was time for the show to start, it all magically came together,” she said. “The models were great, and they wore all of our designs just as we imagined. They brought the clothes to life when they were on the stage, and that’s magic.”

She was amazed at the variety and differences in all of the designers work.  Although she lives in Chicago, the Lexington Fashion Collaborative is always on her mind.

“I think that being a part of this fashion show was a really good start,” she said. “The Lexington Fashion Collaborative reminds us all that beauty and creativity can be found outside of fashion capitals. It provides the opportunity for designers to have a platform to show our hard work and support each other. Although I am now based in Chicago, I will always consider Kentucky my home. I want to be a part of assuring that LFC continues and grows by entering in designs and making connections with other driven designers and organizers.”
