Mixed Media Santa Fe Street Fash­ion Week

Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

Who knew that Santa Fe was such a hot­bed of in­ter­na­tional fash­ion de­sign that it de­served its own spe­cial week — just as in Man­hat­tan and Paris? So thinks Mayor Javier Gon­za­les. He has pro­claimed Aug. 24 through Satur­day, Aug. 29, “Santa Fe Street Fash­ion Week” to high­light aware­ness of just how much cut­ting-edge fash­ion is made and sold in the city. The crown jewel of the week is a run­way fash­ion show, called The Show, be­gin­ning at 6:30 p.m. on Fri­day, Aug. 28, on the rooftop and ball­room at La Fonda (100 E. San Fran­cisco St.), tick­ets to which are $175 per per­son. (A por­tion of the pro­ceeds ben­e­fits Stand Up to Can­cer, an or­ga­ni­za­tion that sup­ports fund­ing for can­cer re­search.) The event is co­or­di­nated by Amy Shea, a brand strate­gist who spe­cial­izes in fash­ion, and fea­tures only items that can be bought at shops in Santa Fe or were cre­ated by lo­cal de­sign­ers. Santa Fe de­sign­ers show­ing their looks in­clude Or­lando Dugi and his la­bel, DUGI, a line of spe­cial-oc­ca­sion and evening­wear, with hand-beaded clutches and gowns; Lily Falk, pro­pri­etor of Lily of the West, a cus­tom dress shop on Palace Av­enue; and Danielle Foster-Herbst of Ate­lier Danielle, who is in­flu­enced by the lux­u­ri­ous, flow­ing fab­rics of ki­monos and saris. Many of the fash­ions shown from out­side of Santa Fe are sold at such high-end re­tail­ers as Goler and Santa Fe Dry Goods, in­clud­ing de­signs by Lars An­der­s­son, United Nude, and Ivan Grun­dahl, and rep­re­sent a range of looks pop­u­lar in Santa Fe that fall un­der the um­brella of “com­fort­able hip­pie goth,” though some of the shoes are less or­ganic and more ar­chi­tec­tural in feel. Gen­eral ad­mis­sion in­cludes a cham­pagne and canapés re­cep­tion as well as a keep­sake bag of beauty items and other goods. All guests of The Show are en­tered into a fash­ion raf­fle.
