Lyres and Lace

Posted on June 22, 2010


Last weekend, I was happy to have the opportunity to go to the Lyres & Lace Music and Fashion Show at the Swedish American Hall to photography my friend Yabette’s participation in the fashion show.   The hand-made neo-Victorian silhouette set decorations by Laura Weinbach, the romantic styles of the designers, the sweet sounds of the musical performances, and the old world charm of the Swedish American Hall were perfect puzzles pieces for the evening.   The vibe was refreshingly friendly; the energy chaotic.  I loved the behind the scenes view.  Models hair, make-up, dress, un-dress, musicians warm-up, organizers corraling, designers put on the finishing touches before the show.   Balder Hall provided a sunny location for photo shoot of all the participating designers.  It also supplied the perfect opportunity to see all the fine details of the designers’ designs, the make-up artists’ handy work, the hair stylists’ finished creations, and the models’ beauty. Cudos to Laura Weinbach et al for putting together something magical.
