The runway is coming to Cleveland as the Museum Center at Five Points hosts its Magic of Wearable Arts Fashion Show and Market on Saturday, a sold out event which will feature a live runway show with over 15 fashion designers, along with special guest Janie Bryant, costume designer for AMC’s “Mad Men,” HBO’s “Deadwood” and Stephen King’s “It.”
The event is intended to spread awareness of local artists and create an awareness of their wearable fashion art. The modeled clothing will also be sold by its designing artist that day. A luncheon will be provided for attendees. Brandi King will serve as the event’s emcee.
“This event is attracting and will feature fiber and jewelry artists from all across the Southeast,” said Museum Center Executive Director Janice Neyman. “The fabrications of these artists are unique and extraordinarily beautiful with designs ranging from pieces for special occasions to casual chic. The artists will also have a selection of their creations on display and available for purchase.”
Neyman added how thrilled the Museum Center is to have Cleveland native and costume designer Janie Bryant attending the event as a special guest. Bryant is an Emmy Award-winning costume designer, well-known for her designs on the TV series “Mad Men” and “Deadwood,” as well as designing the costume for the cannibal clown Pennywise in Stephen King’s 2017 film “It.”
Featured artists include Raeus Cannon, Geri Forkner, Judi Gaston, Tone Haugen-Cogburn, Shelia Holbo, Neal Howard, Sherry Johnson, Susan Marling, Barbara Murnan, Linda Neel, David and Christine Rogers, Daryll Sneden, Liz Spear, Karen Swing, Linda Thompson and Karen Viser.
Sponsors of the Magic of Wearable Arts Fashion Show and Market include Ken Cagle, Beverly Johnson, Ann McCoin, Donna Miller, Ruth McQueen, Nancy Bellusci, Roseanne Killen, Rachel Savage, Ginette Somos and Mary Margaret Stamper.
Neyman expressed her excitement at the event being sold out, and praised the skills of the featured artists bringing their crafts to Cleveland.
“Fiber art is truly magical. It is so deeply ingrained in the culture of our area that it fits in perfectly with our mission here at the Museum Center of telling the story of the Ocoee region,” Neyman said.
The Museum Center is located at 200 Inman St. S.E. in Cleveland.
