The Monarch’s Tales: Model Call and Shoe Designs for Luly Yang’s Couture Show
As the team at Luly Yang Couture approaches the month-to-show mark next week, the fabulous social media manager Andrew Hoge sent me a quick recap of their week complete with a juicy peek at some fabric being used in the April 27 couture show.
But first up, Luly and team booked their models, holding a casting call at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. As Hoge described it, the “set up was very America’s Next Top Model in that we have girls from agencies and some freelance walk for a panel of judges that included Luly.”
Then, it was off to an appearance on King 5’s New Day Northwest TV show to chat about the runway show with a few kiddos and the famous butterfly dress in tow.
As a shoe aficionado, I’m tickled pink about this tidbit: Along with crafting a full show’s worth of garments and couture gowns, Luly is also designing an exclusive shoe collection for the show. I’m curious to see what she does with these colorful, colorful hues and patterns.
