Fashion Friday - Edessa’s School of Fashion (Fashion Extravaganza!!!)

Haute List: Follow the Future

This was a night to remember! The event was an open door event at the Merriment! Beautiful lighting and delightful cocktails with fashionable atmosphere. I must say I was pleased!

Walking to the registration table I was greeted by the infamous Lynn-Speller (Academic Dean and Lead Developer at Edessa School of Fashion) the star of it all. Upon entry, I was able to connect with many familiar faces. #SupportTheLocal

Sitting in the front row I got to see one of Milwaukee’s Musical Artist Lex Allen perform live. He seems to have injured himself the night before and came into the event with the Legendary Pink Crutch and Bandages, setting the scene in full fashionable essence just in time for the show. 

The Fashion Designer pieces were on point! (We need more of that here) and I’ve been asking to come to something that would “WOW’s” me. The Event DID JUST THAT! By the end of the show, we had time to meet and greet with the models and designers, networking at its best! I am happy CW got the opportunity to be present for such a great show. It keeps us inspired.

Keep inviting us to your fashion events, you never know, we might just invite you to be apart of our next fashion feature.

CW Featured Designer Dee.Denim // Darla Shanae

As CW Fashion Editor; Vato believes we need to know more about our Designers and other outlets for fashion in/out of Milwaukee.

I would love to represent the our 1st featured designer Darla Shanae of Deemolishment Denim. I've known Darla for about 3 years now and seen so much of her work. It is great! 

My first encounter with Darla was for a fashion show: she styled me in a white blazer trimmed in Denim. I loved it. 

I want you all to take a deeper look in to Deemolishment Denim.

Meet Darla Shanae.

About Dee.Denim


Deemolishment Denim™ was created by Darla Shanae in 2010. It started out as taking old, unattractive denim and turning it into GLAM, FASHIONABLE denim apparel! The initial goal was to have clients provide their old clothing for "deemolishing", but through displayed quality and professionalism, clients have been known to provide brand new and cherished items for custom design. This was beyond flattery! Whether clients provide new or old denim items ... once it has been deemolished, it has been blessed by the Heavens of Denim Fashion :) 

Over a short time span, Deemolishment has grown into providing custom clothing to customers in the Midwest area. Through our online Etsy store, Deemolishment has also grown to provide these beautiful pieces to people across the United States and also Worldwide! 

At this time in their career, DeeMolishment Denim is offering DIY Workshops (Universal Denim) around the nation to teach at-home ways to destroy and recreate denim. So far, the workshops have been provided to middle/high schoolers in hopes of inspiring them to become entrepreneurs of their own someday. Inquire with the shop members about this opportunity!
