In its 4th year running, From the Ground Fashion Show will take place during Greentopia Fest on Friday, September 12th.
Produced by Rochester's dynamic fashion duo Shawn Dunwoody and Agathi Georgiou, this year's production "is inspired by the vivid imagery of the 1871 novel: Through the Looking Glass, written by literary artist Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland). Perspective of Time intends to test the form of ideas, space, time, and the concept of altering the perspective of our relationship within the Rochester community" (via FTG Website).
The show may not start until 7:30, but come down early to enjoy food and tastings from Rochester's finest food trucks, breweries and wineries during Taste & Toast on Commercial Street at High Falls (this portion of the event is free and open to the public).
Then, for those who have purchased tickets, head into the High Falls Parking Garage and see that it's been transformed into a "Mad Hatter's visual "underland" with birdcages, feathered wings, mushrooms, butterflies, towering heels, and a center tea party table runway."
