A conceptual fashion show and designs by C. Creations by Cheryl Zemke also featuring Petoskey Bling and Rima Adomaviciene’s Jewelry will take place at the Downriver Council for the Arts on Saturday, November 9th, 2019.
C. Creation’s multi-award-winning designer, Cheryl Zemke, is hosting a casting call for her 9th Annual Fashion Show Alchemy on August 15, 2019, at 5:30 pm. The casting call will be held Downriver Council for the Arts at 81 Chestnut Wyandotte. Models are coached and trained by C. Creations to walk a professional runway and learn to pose. Casting is open to females and males that fit the criteria. Ages 14 and up. All denominations and heights, all adult sizes (NO young children or child sizing).
Zemke is looking for models with confidence that would like to expand their skills and portfolio. Photoshoots for promotion before and during the show are a possibility for some that qualify. Including opportunities to be featured in Dedicated Magazine.
Fashion designer Zemke specializes in custom-fit garments for all sizes and shapes. She attempts to include a variety of size ranges in the show. This is a charity event, however, models will have some compensation and merchandise credit for volunteering. Only models serious in committing and living up to those commitments need to apply.
C. Creations Annual Fashion Show and Charity fundraiser is a mixture of fashion, art, culture, acceptance, commerce, and community. Zemke creates themed fashion experiences that are conceptual. Alchemy will be the 9th Annual Show and is completely funded solely by designer C. Creations. In the past, it has been a sold-out to 90-120 VIPs. Zemke brings culture and education to the masses by including a diversification and artist style in her designs.
This year her inspiration is Alchemy- the Creative Art of Transformation- the magic of turning ordinary metals into gold. Also, there will be Asian influences of Wabi-Sabi and Kintsukuroi. Zemke chose this concept in relation to how people feel about each other, accepting people for what they have gone through in life and how valuable they are. Like a piece of pottery that has been broken, and instead of throwing it away, you repair it. It is more valuable for going through the journey.
Alchemy Fashion Show brings fashion to the Downriver area in a professional manner. C. Creations/Zemke installs her 38-40ft. runway and will present her art inspired fashion collections. Each year Zemke chooses one or more designers to participate in the event with her. This year she has invited two jewelry artists, Joyce Czarniowski of Petoskey Bling and Rima Adomaviciene of Rima’s Jewelry coming in from Cleveland, Ohio. Podcast duo Jackie ‘J-Dubs’ Wallace and Nora Griffin will be the Masters of Ceremonies. DJ Apollo- Paulo Dusicska will be providing music.
This fashion show is more than a runway – it is an artistic experience. Zemke is inspired by arts in her designs, supports the DCA center as a volunteer and art teacher for their Kids Summer camps, she is on the Gallery committee and helps to promote other artists in the community by bringing attention to the gallery and the many facets of art. Alchemy fashion show will help the DCA by bringing new guests into the center and providing them with membership and venue information, and allowing them to experience the art exhibit on display in their gallery.
In coordination with Alchemy Fashion Show, Zemke will be the curator of the first DCA sponsored Fiber Arts exhibit – Fibril Illusions. Models cast may have an opportunity to model at the exhibits opening reception late October. Internationally acclaimed, award-winning duo Joe Kidd and Sheila Burke are scheduled to perform at the reception. Alchemy will bring needed funds into the DCA by donating $10 for every VIP ticket sold and all raffle earnings.
Models interested should bring a full-body photo to leave with the application, or a current comp card. Female attire is a black fitted tank or top, fitted pant or legging, and heels. Males should were fitted pant and fitted top. Email questions to [email protected]
