I get invited to the best parties by @SydneyReising
In honour of World Aids Day and in support of AmFar, a ball. The theme for the ball is centred on a celebration of iconic New York – that special city flavour that influences us all from the sidewalk, to the runway, to the dancefloor and more.
Iconic Voguing Houses from across New York City will come together for the event, showcasing the crème de la crème of this iconic form of movement. Houses represented include Mizrahi, Mugler, Xtravaganza, Ninja, Balenciaga, Prodigy, Ghotti, Ebony & Miyake.
The houses will celebrate five legendary ball categories inspired by tracks that make the city move, as well as traditional ball culture:
1. Vogue Fem: W for a Wicked Black black effect… Come vogue to battle and bring home your points –“Walk For Me” - Size Queen
2. Male Magazine Face: The crowd is at your mercy. Let me see that male face that can’t be stopped. Werk! – “Face & Body” - The Ones
3. Female Figure Face: ” On the cover of a magazine” beauty at its best, bring us a lovely face that NYC would die for, Whatever/Whenever – “Deep In Vogue” - Malcolm McLaren
4. Runway: tonight W stands for “walk” we want to see you walk the runway in a high fashion effect - “Runway” - Johnny Dynell
5. Sex Siren: sex sells so bring us the ultimate sexiest man or woman in swim wear making Winter NYC hot! - “Sexy Motherf**cker” – Prince
Each category will be presented by a ‘fashion icon’ who will oversee the trophy presentation for the evening.
