Uncommon Style – Local designers and stylists join forces for show

Amy Strother knows too well about the misconceptions of vintage and sustainable style. The Noelie Harmon owner has heard how these fashions might only fit certain personalities.

“The idea of sustainable fashion is relatively new to Baton Rouge,” Strother says. “Today, sustainable fashion can be attained in any style and any price point.”

Strother will team up with Joshua Holder’s Time Warp Boutique and designer Andi Eaton for tonight’s Uncommon Fashion show. The idea is three shows in one, Strother says, giving Baton Rougeans a new meaning to the phrase “sustainable fashion.”

The show kicks off at 7 p.m. at Hartley/Vey Theatres. Tickets are $40 per person and funds will benefit the development and improvement of Hartley/Vey.

Time Warp will show off select vintage summer styles, applying those older looks to current trends. Strother’s Noelie Harmon will provide eco-friendly, yet fashion-forward looks. Eaton’s designs from her Hazel & Florange collection are completely upcycled.

Eaton was featured last year as a part of 225‘s People to Watch line debuted in March at New Orleans Fashion Week (you can watch a video interview with Eaton here).

Eaton says she’ll show statement dresses and separates as well as some cheeky t-shirts and accessories.

“The line is full of vibrant shades,” Eaton says. “In this tropical Southern Louisiana climate, it’s fully appropriate to wear the brightest orange, lemon-y yellows and mauve all year along.”

Like Strother and Holder, Eaton is excited to be a part of tonight’s event.

“I’m thrilled to be able to focus solely on sharing my work in Baton Rouge for the first time while supporting the Hartley/Vey Theatres,” Eaton says. “It’s an emerging venue that’s a haven for emerging artists.”
