Fashion: Drauma

  • Rendezvous Hair Salon

    Model: Devin Young

    Rendezvous stylists are creating three hair looks each, based on different themes such as Pirates and David Bowie. This design is by stylist Dairdre Scriven. Her theme is self-acceptance, and she recorded music with her band, beautyofmyland, for the show.

  • Anti.Label

    Nine new looks, including a long evening gown with severed heads painted on the fabric, by Anti.Label's Kelli Martin are "pretty outfits with rough detailing," she said.

  • Label Yourself

    Model: Quiana Smith

    Designer Crys Lappie restored and repurposed fragile lingerie from the 1950s and '60s to craft her Drauma collection. A performance piece will open the show. Fair warning: "It will be controversial," Lappie said.

    Jody "Lydia Beatz" Krevens, who will be deejaying and displaying her fashion designs, plans to turn the basement of The Bluestone into a New Wave playground.

    Lindsay Hearts' fashion line is all about letting the wearer's self-confidence have a party, too. The back of this vest says "Girls Girls Girls" in gold letters.

Drauma promises to bring the drama. The new one-night party, billed as the "bitchy sister" of Evolved tattoo studio's annual Halloween ball Trauma, will set The Bluestone swarming with dance parties, fashion shows, drag performances and a Peaches concert.

"I hope we're bringing something totally new and fresh to Columbus," said Lindsay Hearts, one of the creators of the show and the manager of Evolved's all-female location. "It's about partying to be who you are ... to own your creativity and rock it."

Several local designers took that cue and went to work. Click through our gallery for a sneak peek of models in the designs made just for the runways during Drauma's debut.
