As the lights dimmed and the music filled the air, the “Sketches + Stitches” event opened with an electric buzz of excitement. Hosted by the talented designer Ryan Chris, the grand fashion show and charity gala promised to be an unforgettable night for all who attended. With guests dressed in their finest, everyone was eagerly anticipating the unveiling of Ryan’s latest designs. However, the event was not merely a showcase of the designer’s fashion expertise. Instead, it was a celebration of Ryan Chris’ childhood dream, with every stroke of the sketch dedicated to giving back to the community.
Cutting-Edge Meets Classic
The runway came to life with a stunning display of colors, fabrics, technical skill, and incredible creativity as Ryan Chris presented his latest collection to the audience, following Joyce Peñas Pilarky’s newest collection that opened the show. Ryan Chris’s designs were a perfect blend of sophistication and edginess, with each piece being more eye-catching than the last. The models, adorned in Ryan Chris’ creations, glided down the runway, showcasing the unique details of almost a hundred ensembles. It was a true celebration of art and fashion, and the audience was in awe of the talent and creativity on display.
A Night of Style and Generosity
Beyond the stunning fashion, the event was also a celebration of giving back to the community. The proceeds from the evening were dedicated to two charities that were close to the designer’s heart. The MBrace Project, an organization that aims to make a real difference in the lives of children with learning disabilities, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. Ryan Chris’ dedication to supporting this cause stems from his belief that all kids should have access to the resources and support they need to thrive. Additionally, the event supported the Indigenous People’s Student Organization, a cause that is particularly important to Ryan Chris. The organization provides resources and support to Indigenous students pursuing higher education, empowering them to make a positive impact in their communities.
Stitching Together a Brighter Future
Ryan Chris has always been passionate about using his platform to make a difference, and this event was a testament to his talent, passion, vision, and generosity. As he celebrated his 12th year in the fashion industry, he ensured that the spotlight was on two important causes that truly deserved support. The event was a night to remember, filled with fashion and music by Laarni Lozada, Tommie King, and Red Sessions. Philanthropy was made possible through partnerships with Monaco Models and Donna B Make Up Studio, and it was a true celebration of the power of fashion to make a positive impact.
