As It Was: A Virtual Fashion Show Journey Through the Decades

In June 2023, we had the extraordinary opportunity to host a groundbreaking virtual fashion show for our upcycled fashion brand, where we breathed life into the essence of past decades. This remarkable event unfolded amidst the charming vintage ambiance of Gulfport, Florida's renowned "As It Was" vintage furniture and decor store. With the collaborative efforts of Neon Dreams Productions capturing the essence of our collection and the skilled hands of makeup artist Victoria Drotleff (@violetflametouch) and hairstylist Caiti (@hairwithcaiti), the stage was set for a truly remarkable journey through time.
