Local Charity Fashion Show Features Design Competition While Supporting HIV/AIDS
The always-outrageous Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence proudly announce their annual fundraising event, “Project Nunway,” on Saturday, Oct. 14, in SAHARA Theatre at SAHARA Las Vegas. Proceeds from this year’s event will support the Sisters AIDS Drug Assistance Program (SADAP), which provides life-saving medications to people living with HIV/AIDS.
This year’s fashion competition will feature original, avant-garde fashions from local designers centered around the theme of 80s REWIND competing against one another for bragging rights to claim the title for the year. In keeping with the anti-consumerism and eco-sustainable nature of Project Nunway, designers will execute fabulous ensembles using recycled, found and unpurchased materials.
RuPaul Drag Race Alums Chad Michaels and Alexis Mateo will be performing, with Mateo acting as the charismatic event host.
Each of 16 designers will be paired with a Sin Sity Sister to interpret theme, design and execution. Each designer will be judged for their creativity, talent, individuality, vision and overall garment creation. Winners will be chosen for the best overall look, theme interpretation, audience response and model “werking” the runway.
