Runway Realness

| November 21, 2012 | Parties

The Scene Co-chairs Lael Brodsky (a goddess in floor-length white) and Lisa Brown (in gold sequins) hosted an art-turned-runway extravaganza at Dallas Contemporary. The Crowd Max Anderson, Tammy Hartnett, Jenny Kirtland, Muffin Lemak, Carmaleta Whitely and others enjoyed Brian Bolke’s setup of Haider Ackermann and Comme des Garçons jackets, and an impressive Italian-style spread, courtesy of Doug Boster Catering and Absolutely Blooming’s Marion Marshall. Jo Marie Lilly’s touching thanks to honoree Nancy Hanley, Dallas artist and patron, put fond smiles on everyone’s faces. The Show The action moved outside, where featured artist K8 Hardy looked on as models from The Clutts Agency not so much walked as did a dance/strut that looked like sexy-gone-oh-so-wrong. With their dirty orange makeup, piles of got-stuck-in-a-twister hair and oddly-sewn-together bra dresses, this was not your typical fashion show. Hardy uses her platform as a critique on modern-day fashion. But I doubt she convinced Dallasites to stop shopping. Photography by Kristina Bowman
