The Fashion of Flesh
Time & Location
About the Event
A tattoo is a permanent representation of both the wearer and the artist. Historically, tattoos also prohibit conventional modeling and professional growth. “The Fashion of Flesh” questions the norms of the fashion world and our society at large by showcasing what has long been considered counterculture.
“The Fashion of Flesh” is a fashion show that extends beyond runway walks. Amateur models compete for cash prizes in three categories – Best Sleeve, Best Back, and Best Chest. After the three judges declare the winners in each category, TJ Harris takes the stage (along with a selection of special guests) for a live DJ performance. The event begins at 7 PM with light hors d’ouevres and a cash bar. Print pieces submitted by local tattoo artists are on display in the event space, with a silent auction taking place throughout the night.
“The Fashion of Flesh” is an offcial Pittsburgh Fashion Week show endorsed by the Downtown Community Development Corporation, which is in its fourth year of organizing the week’s events. “The Fashion of Flesh” is a ticketed event and is currently accepting applications for models, artists, and sponsors.
