Trixies Rocks the Runway.

What have the Trixies girls been up to? Well August had us putting the finishing touches on our hair pieces for Big Hair Ball, the biennial fundraiser at the Des Moines Art Center!
This is our second time participating in the runway show and it was, once again, a joy to be included in such an amazing event! Art Noir, a member group on the Art Center, is in charge of organizing and keeping everyone sane during this long prepped for event, and they deserve all the credit. We may be the artists, but they are rockstars!
This year’s theme was “A Big Hair Blowout” and our individual show was A Battle of the Zodiacs… Our concept was born months ago, so to say the show always feels like “a long time coming” is no understatement! Rehearsal is always the night before and prep for the show starts early in the morning ((mimosas required!)) and the actual show didn’t start until 9:30pm. What gets everyone through the long day? Sheer excitement!! ((and maybe a little coffee)) The second the music starts and we send all of our hard work down the runway to a packed house is a feeling like no other!
We couldn’t have been prouder to be a participant in such a truly awesome, unique event. Thank you Des Moines for supporting the arts – thank you Art Noir for showcasing a little of our world – thank you to our models for giving us your everything – thank you guest artists Cheri Greiner, Holly Cummins , and finally Ivy Boyd with Wakeup for Makeupfor all sharing your expertise with Team Trixies! We couldn’t have done it without your help… it takes a village! Until next time, xoxo the Trixies Girls.
