Orlando, May 2013 – On Thursday May 16th from 6-10pm, Jai Gallery and partners Awaken Magazine and Shel Marks PR will hold their premiere monthly event: THE FASHION LOUNGE Orlando. The event will take place at Jai Gallery, in the Exchange Building, 101 S. Garland Ave, (at the corner of Pine and Garland), Downtown Orlando.
Jai Gallery Director, Coralie Claeysen-Gleyzon explains her vision and The Fashion Lounge’s purpose as fulfilling a need in the Orlando Fashion scene. She says “for a couple of years I have been researching Orlando’s fashion industry, specifically looking for emerging designers and fashion creatives at great lengths… the Fashion Creatives are there but finding them is a daunting task. Jai Gallery wants to provide them with exposure, by holding a monthly Fashion Lounge, enabling Central Florida’s designers to network, showcase their designs, get feedback and ultimately grow their career. I strongly believe this endeavor will in turn add to the creative vibe of the city”.
The Fashion Lounge will feature established and emerging artists in the following categories: Fashion Design, Art Direction, Fashion Photography, Makeup, Hair, Modeling, Jewelry, DJing and VJing. Send portfolios (no more than 5 images and 140 words) for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note this is an open call for portfolios with no deadline since this will be a recurring event, your portfolio may be kept on file for future events.
Professionals in the industry are also called to present their work, to come scouting for new talent or just enjoy an evening with like-minded fabulous creatives, in a venue filled with glitz, glamour, great music and ambiance. A cash bar will be on the premises. Photography is REQUIRED! There is no dress code: Be yourself and wear what you want, dress to impress or dress to observe. That’s the purpose of the event.
The evening will present 3 designers each month, on the hour: at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm. The rest of the evening will allow participants to mingle and appreciate the beautiful art Jai Gallery has to offer.
Further opportunities will include a competition every 6 months, the possibility to be featured in AWAKEN Magazine and to be exhibited at JAI Gallery.
