Peppermint Sewn Seeds Fashion Show
The third Peppermint Sewn Seeds fashion show will take place Sunday, March 29, at Good Luck Restaurant located at 50 Anderson Avenue in Rochester. The annual event showcases the talent of local designers in Rochester and proceeds will once again benefit Girls Rock! Rochester and Verona Street Animal Shelter. Designer and creator of the Sewn Seeds show, Tanvi Asher, will present spring ready-to-wear designs from Peppermint and her 2015 collection of handmade couture bridal gowns from Asher Bridal. According to Asher, “This year’s bridal collection will be more refined and cohesive, with romantic elements such as lace and ruching.” Fans of her ready-to-wear can expect to see clean, unpretentious looks inspired by the current normcore trend. Asher is once again collaborating with her Park Avenue neighbor, World Hair, for the show’s hair and makeup. Also returning for this year’s event will be collaborating designer, Josean Vargas, of J. Vargas. With a continuing focus on bright and vibrant color, his resort wear will take a cool refreshing dip in Caribbean waters. The collection will represent a lively, spirited woman, with different silhouettes to appeal to all body types. New to the Sewn Seeds roster is Katrina Elliott, whose work embodies an ever-changing but cohesive style. She has selected a mixture of textures, colors, prints and silhouettes inspired from the past, present, and future. Her goal is to showcase a combination of garments meant for stimulating and fresh results. A cocktail reception will precede the show at 1:00 PM and the runway show will commence at 2:00 PM. Tickets will be available on February 16 for online purchase at Good Luck’s website (http://inspiredtable.restaurantgoodluck.com) and will also be available at Peppermint. Limited VIP seating tickets are $65 and general admission is $30. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event and a portion of the show’s ticket sales will also benefit the two charities.
