The Shrevepunk Fashion & Art Show, presented by the Agora Borealis, combines the style and inspiration of the science fiction subgenre known as steampunk, with the history and architecture of Shreveport. For the third year, Katy Larsen, owner of the Agora Borealis and producer of the fashion show, is bringing local designers and artists to the forefront in a one-night event, which also will feature a Fashion Show Marketplace.
“The show is meant to inspire artists to look at our city with new eyes and take the elements present, sculpt them to the body as a visual outlet and a finished, wearable look,” said Larsen.
Designers featured in the show are: Amy Lynn Treme, Bonnie Ferguson of Pastry Moon, Charnel Smith, Cookie DuBois of Cookie DuBois Clothing, Karisca Sellers, Marijo Brown, Marlene Yu Museum, Regina Brickett of SubtleTees Junk Jewels, Derick Jones of Vessel Vintage, Sherri Winseman and Melanie Scarlett of Scarlett Proverbs.
