Transformations Fashion Show

Friday night, I saw an awesome show. Transformations is an annual show designed and produced by Catherine Fritsch for DivaFest.
Fristch speaking with the audience
 Fritsch is owner and designer of Mercurious Designs and Sweet Revenge Lingerie. She has 18 years experience in designing, pattern making and sewing services. In my book, she is the one of  the gurus of design AND she is one of the most humble and nicest person you will ever meet. She's also one of our clients at Aesthetic Design Style.
In the Transformation show, Fritsch takes off the wall objects, like styrofoam from bean bag chair and balloons, to make modern Victorian pieces. Models were supplied by LModelz Modeling Agency. Makeup was done by our own Julia Rutland and Christopher Thompson of Re-Creations and Kathy Moberly of faces by klm. Hair styling was provided by Geneva Hair Studio and jewelry by Cheeky Couture.
I was excited all week about this show. Here are a few of my favorite.

The Pike Prom Closet

Aesthetic Design Style is asking for your help in providing dresses, shoes, and accessories for the Pike High School Prom Closet.

This project began two years ago and is sponsored by the Pike High School chapter of the National Honor Society, student leader Chasmine Anderson, and Advisor Ms. Brea Thomas. The Pike Prom closet is open to the entire community and is an avenue for girls to get a beautiful outfit for prom or graduation without having to spend a lot of money-making it affordable to enjoy this special time in their lives. Girls are able to go into the Pike Prom Closet and pick out a dress for $15, shoes for $5, and accessories for $2. All proceeds from the sales go to the Women Like Us Foundation ( who then devotes those funds to rebuilding a school in Costa Rica.

The Pike Prom Closet is in need of dresses and shoes in all styles and sizes. Any accessories are welcome and are a nice addition as well. If you are a designer, a boutique, or someone who has an over- abundance of dresses they would like to donate please give us a call to schedule a pick up. We will, personally, pick up your donations wherever you may be. We even accept donations via mail so email me for our address ( if you would prefer that option.

The Pike Prom Closet is open Tuesdays at Pike High School located at 5401 West 71st Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46268, Room L105, from 2:30pm – 4:30pm.

Let’s work together and help make great memories for these students to last a lifetime!
