This year's Möda Provŏcateūr 2014 theme was "This isn't your grandmother's fashion show." Our multimedia intern Alan Davis strutted his way into this sold out event so we can all enjoy it vicariously on The Range.
Break Out Studios and Artifact Dance Project performed on the runway, as models in all types of gowns, outfits, swimsuits. The variety of gowns were massive, ranging from a flock of Monarch Butterflies to a line of blood red dresses that had the audience cat calling.
The 11th annual Möda Provŏcateūr was produced entirely by volunteers, six local salons and twelve local boutiques partnered to bring the most over-the-top fashion show to Southern Arizona. Möda Provŏcateūr is an annual benefit for SAAF, the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation. "We're looking to raise about $70,000 this year," said Ethan Cox the director of development for SAAF.
The funds raised helps 1,100 clients that are living with HIV and AIDS and also benefits prevention and outreach programs.
