Orlando Fashion District is making Orlando Fashion History with our first Orlando Fashion Battle Event, filmed and live streamed from KDS One Studios on January 16, 2019.
The concept is to recognize and reward Orlando’s Top Fashion and Costume Designers, Models, Hair Stylists and Makeup Artists in a fun and uplifting way that leaves everyone feeling appreciated.
Orlando Fashion District gave away over $5,000 in gift cards and prizes to the winners through entry fees, ticket sales and sponsor donations including project development services for the winning designers, pro photo shoots for the winning models and more.
Each “Fashion Battle League” team consists of a Designer, 5 Models, a Hairstylist and a Makeup Artist who have exactly 2 hours to get ready to rumble.
In the meantime several photographers, videographers, talk show hosts and film makers lit up the behind the scenes action. Veronica Banchs from Bagles and Shade, Dawn Of The Underground, Dre Ben Frank and Ernie Mosteller from Fried Okra Entertainment all conducted interviews and shot footage which will be used to tell the Fashion Stories of our contestants, raising the bar on what “experience and exposure” should really mean.
Here are Veronica, Dawn and Dre Ben Franks audio antics including an interview with Richard Krent, Orlando Fashion District’s VP, Fashion Designer and Project Archictect: Orlando Fashion Battle Live Backstage Interviews
Christian Mosi did some pre show interviews with two of the Teen contestants, 17 year old downs syndrome model Saris Marie Garcia and 18 year old Fashion Battle Winner Trinity Acevedo who called her shot and won.
This event is being filmed by a team of professionals from Focused In Entertainment led by Acie Blaze with the intention of selling it to network television or trending content providers like Amazon Prime or Netflix. The event can be seen live at KDS One Studios in our studio audience (check our calendar for dates) live streamed on Instagram and Facebook and soon episodes will be hosted here on Orlando Fashion District’s website.
