I had the pleasure of attending the Saturday and Sunday shows of Fashion Week RI! Fashion, creativity, and inspiration made the two nights unforgettable. Not only were designers showcasing their one-of-a-kind collections, various performers showed off their skills, too. The nights were filled with unique talent and it was an absolute pleasure to see expression and passion presented.
As stated by Fashion Week Ri, Fashion Week Ri is "produced by LIGHTS | FASHION | PHILANTHROPY, a ‘fashion-event’ production and entertainment company. Our mission is to help charitable organizations increase their fundraising efforts while promoting local clothing boutiques, artisans as well as up & coming fashion and accessory designers".

The night concluded with an afterparty:
Sunday was the final day of FWRI, so I had to go out with a bang. I dug through my closet, drawers, and shoe racks wondering what could I put together that would be a unique outfit, that also contrasted with my Saturday's show look.
Then it came to me. I remembered my own blog post. "Don't fear the funky" (link here)
I was going to bring the funk, the bright colors, and the strange fabulousness that I love, to FWRI.
Get my look
I used several shades of eye-shadow from my color palette to give me a strange look that matched by shoes.
In contrast to the Saturday show, the Sunday show had a very casual afternoon sense to it. Drinks were being served, same with Saturday, but this time, they were being brought to the audience. The main room was filled with chatter. The VIP room wasn't being used in the same way as Saturday, due to the models changing in there. Knowing that, I couldn't wait to see how the Sunday show differed from the Saturday show.
