Alternative Fashion Week Columbus could be defined many ways when considering all of the elements the celebration had been set to bring. Via Vecchia Winery had the opportunity, as many may not have known, to sponsor this event in more ways than one- hosting an event and creating fashion for the event!
Kelli Martin was incredibly spunky and fun to be around. She joined the group in live painting, speaking up a few times to share her perspective in how fashion paintings contrasted from others.
Via Vecchia Winery was happy to be part of an exclusive event that involved community. Stealing a view glances, you could see many of the guests enjoying their time & creating absolute stunning replicas of the model from their own point of view.
Before saying her good-byes, Kelli posed with Via Vecchia Winery, Co-Creators & Marketing.
Co-Creator of Via Vecchia Winery, Paolo Rosi, designed several hats for the Label Yourself line by local Designer, Crys Darling. Her theme was 50's Housewives attending a bake off.
Her unique presence at the runway finale show is sure to be a tasty-talk for time to come. Marketing Manager for Via Vecchia Winery, Lindsay Everson (far left) modeled for Crys as well.
