Silver Spring glams it up

Judging by the crowds, Downtown Silver Spring's second annual Street Glam fashion event was a huge success. MC'd by Delegate Craig Rice and Lawrence O'Neill, glam models strutted the runway accompanied by thumping tunes by PDB Group Venture, presenting a diverse collection of cutting edge fashions by local designers. Though a certain male model sporting a bare chest under an open shirt stole the show, there were many highlights: including the unusual artistic opening, in which a lazy geisha, lying on the runway in her undies, is dressed in traditional kimono and shoes by a team discreetly hiding her behind black curtains. The models were fantastic and deserve a special shout out. Designers presented fashions most notable for their fashion-forward sophisticated take on current trends. Just to name a few, Booshie wowed with its flirty, creative take on the dress; Ksara Boutique showed off their sophisticated, urban style; Thembe presented a line of very cool wearable art. KAS Collections, newly opened at National Harbor, presented the best in trendy; Silver Spring boutique Kustom Looks Clothier showed off hot men in suits featuring--shorts. Kellie Chafin, Miss Silver Spring Outstanding Teen, was all dolled up in a lovely dress of her own and glittering tiara in the front row.
