Date: July 19. Venue: Yotel Hotel.
Inspired by Kelly Clarkson’s “People Like Us” lyrics, Jason Christopher Peters uses design, broken glass and Swarovski crystals to express real emotion, heartbreak and keeping one’s confidence despite adversity. From the bold wordings to the black, nude and red color palette, JCP’s bleed n’ burn & darkness n’ nakedness concept resounds beyond his fabric choices.
Soon to embark on a fashion tour, JCP will travel to twelve states, bringing with him a charitable message dearest to his heart. JCP tells Jesenia’s Goodie Bag he plans on incorporating real people, especially the underprivileged, the terminally ill and teens effected by bullying to his runway show finales, something as impactful as inner strength & inner beauty never done before by another designer.
Fashion curator Catherine Schuller of Yotel Hotel – Saturday Fashion Brunches tells JGB Editor she and host Errickson Wilcox coordinate Runway The Real Way every Saturday at Yotel Hotel, a concept of bringing fashion beyond the sample size by using models of various proportions in their fashion shows.
Sponsoring the event was Stylaga, a social shopping app for iPhone or Android that allows you to access your favorite designer brands from the comfort of your mobile device or desktop. Catherine tells us Stylaga has now partnered with Yotel Hotel – Saturday Fashion Brunches to provide runway designs featured at the event right into the app, so guests can shop the looks they want hassle-free.
