Roller Coasters and Ruffles

Bria in "The Lauren"

Last weekend an amazing fashion show "Roller Coasters and Ruffles" was presented at the Marz Bar.  The fashion show was the debut of two collections Andrew Boettger produced for his Masters Degree in fashion design at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Andrew spent time analyzing the trickle down effect of the fashion industry and the recent trend of limited-edition budget designer collections.  

As a result of his research Andrew created two clothing collections Colossus and Cyclone.  One to be retailed at a designer price-point and the other at a more moderate level.  Also included in the show was a retrospective of his earlier work experimenting with original fabric prints, sculptural design and deconstruction. 

Hair by Nathan Sebastian and Staiy Tran, makeup by Sara Pancharoen, and styling by Andrew Boettger and Tracy Rosenbaum
Nathan James-Estenson took some fantastic photographs of the show and some close-ups afterwards.
