Queer Fashion Week in Oakland, CA, first event of its kind in the US and we were part of it!
It was an honor, and it was a blast!Queer Fashion Week, now an annual event, was produced by the amazing Miz Chris, founder and producer of the famed EDEN Pride Events and the extraordinarily talented Fallon Davis, founder and producer of the What is Butch Movement.
We were so excited to be invited to part of this amazing event! It was 3 days full of parties, fashion shows, musical guests and so much more.
The first night Outplay was on the runway was on Friday when all the brands participated in the Red show in benefiting RED.org. We had the honor of having the incredible Rain Dove wear our red low Swimmee and red Boi shorts (she wore a low compression red Swimmee).
Saturday night was a big night. The runway was filled with amazing brands and designers. The craziness that is backstage was full of energy and excitement.
We showed all of our tomboy swimsuits including the new rash guards we recently added to our store.
We also had our first sports wear pieces walk the runway.
We had the best looking and most fun models represent Outplay on the catwalk.
The show was filled from wall to wall and once the music started and the models starting walking down the runway, the excitement became contagious.
