Glas Kat Supper Club
520 4th Street

As with all Shannon Hardisty fashion show productions, ‘Wonderland’ will be showcasing local talent, both established and emerging. There will be a live model exhibition sponsored by Miriam Carvalho, wardrobe stylist for Urban Darling in San Francisco.

The runway show will showcase looks for men, women, and children by a variety of designers, including:

Daniel’s inspiration for his ‘Awakening’ spring/summer 2011 men’s collection came from colors and prints. Daniel Sudar makes Men’s Shirts and Shorts for the genuine modern day gentlemen; for the man who loves the thrill of anything new, and is always at the forefront of avant-garde fashion.

DOMINIQUE ANSARI, An Independent Designer
Dominique specializes in dress making, with a variety of collections including her seasonal RTW lines, couture gowns, recycled line, and a swimwear line. At the Wonderland benefit fashion show she’ll be showing her Holiday Gown Collection entitled “Obsured Enchantment”. Purchases for her lines can be made through and also at the Trunk Boutique in San Francisco.

JENN LUI, Intwined*
After a childhood of arts & crafts, origami, and making cards and scarves as presents for friends, Jenn fully developed her passion for fashion while attending high school; from there she went on to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and started a career in merchandising soon after. Jenn turned to making bowties as a way to express her creativity and soon left the corporate world behind. Intwined embodies Jenn’s love for textiles, vintage inspirations, crafts, and fashion.

SARAH GONSALVES, Josephine Resort
Josephine Resort by Sarah Gonsalves is a collection of fun, flirty and flattering cocktail dresses; designed with tropical destinations in mind. Sarah has been designing and creating Josephine Resort cocktail dresses since 2008, finding inspiration and motivation through her relationship with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sarah takes pride in bringing glory to Jesus’ name by using the talents that He has given her.

TARA KITAMI, Kitami Ropa*
A child of the 80s, Tara adored the looks of Madonna, George Michael, She-Ra, Jem, and Pretty in Pink. Since graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, she has enjoyed a successful career in fashion; making people feel gorgeous while remaining original. Tara’s collection Kitami Ropa is a woman’s line catering to the true modern vintage goddess; styling new and current pieces with timeless classics to create the ultimate unique look.

*Tara Kitami of “Kitami Ropa” and Jenn Lui of “Intwined” have teamed up to create the “Retro, Glam, Rock” collection for the ‘Wonderland’ benefit fashion show. The inspiration was drawn from the crisp fresh feel of the winter season and all its luxurious fabrications and colors. Lace, Silk, Sequin, Fur, Reds, Blues, Greens and Purples all played a part in birthing this collection. The accessories by Intwined are all one of a kind. Jenn Lui of Intwined designed gorgeous head pieces made from chains, veils, vintage fabrics and buttons.
