Sin City Sisters to Celebrate at Dia de Los Muertos-themed Project Nunway
By Las Vegas PRIDE Magazine Staff
The always-outrageous Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence proudly announces their annual Project Nunway Challenge fashion show event on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021 at the New Orleans Square courtyard in The Historic Commercial Center District (953 East Sahara Avenue). Proceeds from this year’s event will support the Sisters AIDS Drug Assistance Program (SADAP), which provides life-saving medications to people living with HIV/AIDS.
The competition will feature original, avant garde fashions from local designers centered around this year’s theme, Dia de Los Muertos. In keeping with the anti-consumerism and eco-sustainable nature of Project Nunway, these fabulous ensembles will be executed with the use of recycled, found, and unpurchased materials. Designers will be paired with a Sin Sity Sister to interpret the theme design and execution. Each designer will be judged for their creativity, talent, individuality, vision, and overall garment creation. In addition to the grand prize, winners will be chosen for best overall look, interpretation of theme, audience response, and model ‘werking’ the runway.
Event tickets are available on-line at sinsitysisters.org and guests may opt for general admission tickets for $20, which grants access to the main event at 8 p.m. or VIP tickets ($30) which include access to a pre-event reception beginning at 6 p.m. with light food, donated bar, and other surprises.
Interested designers and sponsors should contact Saint Smashing Happy Hour Victor Rodriguez at 702-383-9805 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
