Cause for Mass Appeal 2012: The Church at Evergreen
Many of us our familiar with the origins of Mass Appeal - the Elmwood Village fashion show held in Lafayette Church that captured the imagination of the community the first year that it was held. While the event has switched venues, and is now being held at The Church at Evergreen, 262 Georgia Street in Buffalo (see here), the over-the-top multi-media flare remains the same.
On Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, the Elmwood Village Association and Evergreen Health Services will be showcasing some of the areas greatest fashion talents featuring fashion found in a number of the Elmwood Village boutiques, and worn by models in the midst of "a grand church venue, new energy, and the highest level of artistic production."
Come see the top designers, artists and performers including local DJs and The Albrights, as the church is transformed into a mix of high-energy club party, drag show, music venue, lounge-bar and multi-media runway show. Here's a video clip teaser:
