After the positive response to last year’s fashion show, we decided to do it again. On Saturday, June 4th we presented the second annual Skiviez Fashion Show, which brought our local fans all the models, underwear, and fun that they could stand!
This year the Barksdale Theater was our destination of choice. With the bigger venue, we had to have a bigger entertainment lineup. (You know the saying. “Go BIG or GO HOME!”). Our Mistress and Master of ceremonies this time were Magnolia Jackson Picket Burnside, Style Weekly‘s Drag Performer of the Year, and the social maven himself Benjamin Barber. We also had local electro-punk band Dead Fame entertain the crowd between acts.
I know you came here to look at the underwear, the models, or both…. So without further delay, let’s get on with the show!
More after the jump….
Of course, the main event was our Skiviez boys modeling our latest assortment of Skiviez brand underwear. This year’s show was directed by Augustin, who was last year’s MC. Instead of a traditional runway presentation, we had the models present “scenes.” The scenes ranged from swim and sport to fetish and pride. We also included brand-exclusive scenes from Baskit, Skiviez, and Kyle. We featured over 70+ styles in the show this year. Below is just a small sampling of what we showed.
