It’s a flashback to one of Seattle’s hottest teen fashion night; the MAC Fashion House Youth Expose.
It’s been almost two years since it happened, but the MAC Fashion House Youth Expose’ didn’t get the attention it should have from local media outlets, so we’re taking another look at the 2010 Unified Outreach Showcase Event featuring the launch of the Precious Casting program. This FREE resource for aspiring and established talent in the Acting, Modeling, Music, Fashion, and Performance industries provided a industry recognized database to post and store resumes, head-shots, portfolio, video clips, voice-over clips, and other items that expressed the artist’s body of work.
The Unified Outreach (Precious Casting program) partnered with MAC Fashion House to provide runway training to 20 aspiring youth/teen artists (ages 9-22) to plan, prepare, and deliver the 2010 MAC Fashion House Youth Expose – Fashion Show.
This gala event featured a raised runway, a live musical performance by Tyrone (Dumas), a full catered dinner spread by Munchies Catering, and nearly 60 custom designed outfits by MAC Fashion House.
Youth participated in the roles of Models, Runway Directors, Sound & Lighting, Facilities Maintenance, and more, and was attended by a who’s-who of local celebrities including Nes Rodrigues, The Mixalot Posse, and (KUBE 93) DJ B-Mello.
Video clips of the event can be found on YouTube for those of you who would like to see tomorrow’s fashion model’s getting their start.
