Tucson Gets its Own Version of Project Runway at Moda Provocateur

TUCSON (Observer Update) - Moda Provocateur, a fashion event, has become known over the past 5 years for pushing the boundaries of hair, style and entertainment! This year, Moda Provocateur, sponsored by Udall Law Firm and inspired by the well known Bravo television series, offers a segment during the show called ‘Project Runway Moda’, on Sunday, March 8, 2009 at The University of Arizona® Student Union Grand Ballroom. All proceeds from the event benefit the programs and services of the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation.

Project Runway Möda began in September of 2008 with challenges to Pima Community College Fashion Design and Clothing students to develop apparel in four different themes; AIDS Awareness, Tucson Style, Tribute to the Military/All Things Patriotic, and Green/Eco-Friendly. The designs of all four category winners will be on the runway at Moda Provŏcateūr, and the audience will select the top over-all designer that evening. The main show begins at 6pm, with VIP guests arriving at 5pm for dinner and entertainment. Featured salons are Avalon for Hair, Skin and Nails, (whose owner, Kevin Casey, founded Moda Provŏcateūr), Aveda Institute Arizona, Ahead of Style, John Paul Mitchell Systems SW Education Team hosted by Spirals Salon and Style 7 Salon. The evening will also include dance numbers from A Tucson Dance Company, and a peek at the talents of Edgar Huerta, artist, poet and designer.
