BeDecked! II – Black and White Ball goes down July 11th, 2013 at BMW Seattle!
BeDecked! will bring together Artists and Designers from around the Northwest for a night of fashion, fundraising and fantasticness to raise funds and awareness for prevention of MCS and chemical injury.
Hold onto your wigs and feather boas friends, because BeDecked! II is set to be even bigger and better than last year! With a more streamlined vision and renewed mission to share empowerment through the fashion experience, this year’s show will have lots of opportunities to shop and to get hands on with sparkly things created by local artists and craftspeople. BeDecked! II is currently being planned for July 2013, be watching for the official announcement of the date and this year’s spectacular theme soon!
BeDecked went off, not without a hitch, but went off nonetheless on June 28th, 2012 at BMW Seattle. We celebrated local designers’ creations and reveled in the merging of the worlds of burlesque, drag, pageantry, music and fashion for a night. We made a splash and put on a great show. I couldn’t be prouder of the accomplishment, and I do believe BeDecked! will have to happen again.
I want to thank everyone who helped make the show all that it was, I had a fantastic crew of backstage personnel, talented hair and make up professionals, beautiful models, friends who volunteered their time and lots of wonderful sponsors who provided all the pieces of the final puzzle.
As a fundraiser, BeDecked didn’t exactly raise the funds to springboard Lime Light Fashion to that store grand opening, but some great connections were made, and the journey continues. Keep watching the Lime Light facebook page and limelightfashion.com for updates on our progress toward the goal, and announcements of the winners of the designer, model, hair and make up, and photographer contests from BeDecked!, to be featured in an upcoming fashion spread in NW Beauty Magazine.
Thanks for all your support!
White Moustache is so much more than a food tour, it’s truly an adventure as it states in their name, White Moustache Urban Adventures Co. We are lucky enough to have their Grubwagon at BeDecked! serving the finest gourmet cupcakes from The Yellow Leaf cupcake co. with the magic of Italian buttercream. This is also included in the price of your ticket. Can you believe $20 gets drinks a show and cupcakes, WHAT? Oh yeah!
Your celebrity co-hosts for the evening will be Mrs. Washington America 2012, Jessica Riggs and Seattle’s rising star female impersonator, Isis! This pairing represents exactly what Lime Light Fashion hopes to bring to the Seattle community with the launch of our store next year, the blending of worlds and support of artists from different backgrounds to encourage and uplift eachother. We are thrilled to have both of these talented individuals supporting Lime Light, and keeping the action moving for you at BeDecked!
Along with Jessica, several of the city and county title holders competing for the Mrs. Washington 2013 title will be in the house too, bringing the galmour!
Did you know your ticket not only includes a fashion show, burlesque show and a DJ spinning tunes all hosted by two fabulous Queens surrounded by gorgeous cars, but that it ALSO includes two specialty drinks provided by our official drink sponsor, Pearl Vodka? Yes, you read that right. If you haven’t gotten your ticket yet, you better do it quick, this event is too fantastic to miss! Seriously, quit reading and get your ticket!
Yes, this is a fundraiser for Lime Light Fashion House but we can’t forget about the community. We are asking our attendees to bring clothing for Ruby Room Seattle and Queen, It’s a New Day. Both are amazing causes that we are thrilled to be able to raise awareness and support for. Ruby Room Seattle takes prom dresses, evening gowns, cocktail dresses, etc. to give to girls who would otherwise be unable to attend their high school right of passage formal dances, and Queen It’s a New Day is always looking for business clothing and everyday clothes for women trying to get back on their feet. Please visit the website for these amazing causes to learn more and to see how you can help.
Lime Light Fashion supports these two organizations specifically because their missions are aligned with Lime Light’s mission of promoting self esteem in women and teens through glamour.
This show is so off the hook that we don’t just have music for our models to walk the runway, we have a DJ spinning her hits. Join us in welcoming DJ Gold E Lox for a great mix of passion, sparkle and fun.
The one and only Sailor St. Claire, the Showgirl Scholar is performing at BeDecked! Sailor draws her inspiration from Katharine Hepburn’s quick wit and Ann-Margret’s sexy charm, as well as from Golden Age burlesque artists like Tempest Storm. Known far and wide for her ability to handle rope, this redheaded siren’s tassel-twirling bravura makes seamen and landlubbers alike shout, “Hello, Sailor!”
We are so excited to have Sailor. Get your tickets to BeDecked! soon because they are going fast. Stay tuned for more surprises and announcements to come!
What could be better than to have a fashion show surrounded by beautiful luxury cars? We say there isn’t a better venue option. LEED Certified BMW Seattle is hosting BeDecked! and we couldn’t be happier. Not only is it high class but it’s easy to find. Located at 1002 Airport Way S. Seattle, WA 98134 it’s right in the heart of SODO and a soon-to-be neighbor of Lime Light Fashion House. Thank you BMW Seattle for the support and warm welcome.
