Savannah Independent Designers runway show dazzles (photos)

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect on Friday night for the runway show for the Savannah Independent Designers fashion show on Friday evening at Dollhouse Productions, but I came away really impressed with the talent on display.

From the event description on Facebook:

SID (Savannah Independent Designers) is a showcase featuring the latest works and collections from a selected group of designers and jewelry makers living and working in Savannah Georgia. As a new addition to Savannah Fashion Week 2013, SID will wrap up the week with looks from Mangled Courtesan, Brooke Atwood, Mamie Ruth, Aureus by Troy Allen, aRe carnes, Brazen Design, and Meredith Anne-Sutton.

And here are the event sponsors:

Dollface by Jules, Make Up Forever, Keratin Complex, RISE Model Management, Towne Salon, Connect Savannah, Digital Envy, Creative Approach, Kauffman & Heinz, Pavilion Productions, and The Sparetime.

Most (or maybe all?) of the models are from RISE Model Management.

This is a collection of 40 images that I liked best, in part based on image quality. It was a short runway, some of the models were moving pretty fast, the light changed at several points in the brief stretch, and the models had to negotiate some short stairs. The effect of all this in the room was pretty awesome, but it made it tricky to get ideal shots of each look.

I hope someone will come along and post something saying which ones are from which designers. I will update here when I’ve got all the looks firmly identified.

Also, I have a whole lot more photos that are as good or almost as good as these. I will post a larger album to my Savannah Unplugged Facebook page in the near future, but I can also be reached via billdawers [at] comcast [dot] net.

Click for larger versions or click below to open as a CoolIris gallery, which I think is the best way to view these. (And, yes, that’s a dog headed up the stairs as a model is headed down.)
