We also went to The Great Roar Saturday evening at new spot The Manor, a fashion and art event opening that explores the exuberant era of the The Roaring '20s. We snapped the organizers, Black Knight Events’ Moh Ducis, Haute Haus Agency’s Baille Gelwicks, Sarah Khan and photographer Jay Snap.
VIP guests were treated to a yesteryear photo exhibition, a living fashion installation of period clothes from collectors Jessamyn Goshorn and Randy Green, a black and white silent film, and a burlesque performance. Here, designer Jessamyn Strebs is surrounded by models wearing her vintage clothing: Belle Adalla (left) and Guisselle and Ramire Lema.
The 20s style is noted for personal expression, and hyper-charged fashion and style. Here, State Farm’s Christian Durand, Blazing Bakery’s Duane Face and Ford Pettibone.
Property manager Bridgette Phelps with dental hygienist Mariam Wyant.
