Project Ethos’ upcoming event in Scottsdale, Arizona will showcase four astonishing local designers that will be competing to become the next fashionista! The hopeful four each stand a chance to win a prize pack of their choice worth $3,000 in the vitaminwater zero™ sponsored "Flavor Fashionista Challenge." Eager creative talents are given a $200 budget to produce a garment inspired by a particular flavor of vitaminwater zero™ which will then be premiered within the runway show. They include Brianne Bridge (Bri Bridge), Amelia Walsh (Amelia Walsh), Monique Martinez-Sandoval (Ouma Clothing) and Latonya Adkins (HourGlass Apparel).
Amelia Walsh’s inspiration originally came from her mother, who designed and made wedding gowns. Her fashion fling has progressed into a growing obsession that allowed her to debut her first collection in Arizona during November of 2008. Walsh firmly believes that clothes need to serve a purpose larger then function. "Everything should have elegance!" Amelia states you shouldn't lose sophistication for convenience and comfort. Instead, one should strive for creativity.
Inspired by urban, rock and dance styles, BRI BRIDGE is fashion for the modern woman making a statement. "Your style should reflect your character and we can all enhance, express, and empower ourselves through our wardrobe." Specializing in custom design and exclusive pieces – always tailoring to a specific look, the possibilities are truly endless with Bri Bridge’s visions for fashion.
Then we meet stylists like Latonya Adkins who designs for women and is inspired by a woman’s silhouette. Her line, HourGlass Apparel, fashionably stands out in a crowd, accentuates a woman’s curves and compliments their sophistication. "I hope to help every woman find a "fabulous look, feel fabulous" attitude and know that the garments she wears are specifically designed with her individual style and shape in mind."
Designers like Monique Martinez, the proud maker of Ouma Clothing, also believes in creativity. She has reinvented the meaning of casual classics by accompanying them with a funky feminine look that highlights whimsical detail and still breathes easy. Ouma designs are made out of natural fabrics that allow you to move freely because they believe that clothes should be fun, different, and comfortable! Ouma blends unique fabrics and trims that bring together original masterpieces.
