"Big Fish in a Small Pond! The time has come, Randy Gary has gotten an opportunity to introduce himself to the Midwest. Come experience fashion from his perspective and take a glance into his glamorous world as he presents his first collection in 5 years."
Designer Randy Gary answered the fashion call back in 2012 after a visit with his nursing school counselor. “After seeing the remaining number of science classes I had, I knew it was time to pursue my love for fashion”. “Fashion has always been a part of my life, I have always enjoyed the beauty of it and it is something that has always been intriguing to me, I’ve been sewing for about 7 years now.”
On Friday, December 13, 2019, Gary will be showcasing the Randy Gary Collection during the Headlining (DE-FI) produced fashion experience at Dayton Fashion Week. (DE-FI) is a volunteer community Think Tank providing access for emerging designers, aspiring models, sewers, and textile makers in the fashion industry. The event will be held in Dayton, Ohio at the Main Event Center at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds.
As a featured designer alongside other various designers from the area, the new Midwest-based talent will be showing his first collections in years: The Monroe Gary collection. “Fashion show attendees can expect to be impressed with my designs. They can expect to see wearable statement pieces, with over the top elements … exotic prints, trains, ruffles, sparkle, just pure drama”.
The Monroe Gary collection will be inspired by the designer himself and his take on fashion and how he views it. This time around he’s venturing into the ready-to-wear category, but staying true to his over the top aesthetic. This collection will truly showcase fashion from his perspective.
