So here’s a fairly quick edit of about 75 photos from the Savannah Arts Academy‘s 2016 version of the Junk 2 Funk Fashion Show. The event is presented each year by the Visual Arts Department with support from other departments and lots of other folks.
This year’s theme was “Intergalactic” and that set the stage for the trippy, intricate, even elegant designs by several dozen student designers whose work was shared by their classmate models.
I love going to Junk 2 Funk each year — it’s exciting to live a couple of miles from a public high school where the arts are so highly valued.
Last night was opening night, and I took a ton of photos. I’ll probably post one big gallery in a day or two to the Savannah Unplugged Facebook page. The photos here don’t necessarily represent my favorite designs of the night, but they’re some of the best shots that I got. The event and the students move quickly, and this year there was a fair amount of smoke, which always makes photography harder (especially near the end when the designers took their bows).
Anyway, more to come soon. Enjoy. (And if you want to share any of these photos, that’s cool with me, but please link back to this post. Thanks.)
