Monstruosité by Dolly Donshey: The Seven Devils Showcase

In Designers, Events, Fashion on March 26, 2013 at 2:31 pm

In February we were fortunate enough to attend Dolly Donshey of Monstruosité’s showcase at Martini Republic in the heart of Downtown Tampa. Titled “Seven Devils,” the Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection was a representation of the seven deadly sins through fashion, video, music and drama.

The Seven Devils showcase was as unique as Dolly Donshey’s designs. The audience was mesmerized by the theatrics of the show as the models impersonated each of their deadly sins to Ms. Donshey’s poetic 2

Monstruosité’s Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection stayed very true to its theme. The designs, the story behind the collection, the luminous makeup and hair pieces down to the glitter-infused faux blood covering the models’ limbs – the showcase did not miss a beat. Although, this does not come as a surprise for work produced by TBFW Designer 2011 & 2012, Dolly Donshey.

We look forward to the bright future of Dolly Donshey and the beyond ingenious and artistic work yet to come from Monstruosité.

Accessorizes are key to putting together an outfit! It can be anything from jewelry to even automobiles. Yeah… automobiles! For instance, Audi is a super stylish, and sexy accessory that will complete a fashion lover’s look! Not only does Audi make luxury vehicles like the Audi R8 and Audi A4, they support our efforts of celebrating and supporting Tampa Bay fashion. I’m happy to announce that Audi will join Fashion Week Tampa Bay again as the presenting sponsor!

From the beginning, advanced technology has been at the heart of the Audi DNA. Audi of America Inc. and its 270 dealers offer a full line of German-engineered luxury vehicles. Check out some of my favorite Audi vehicles below!
