The Sanford native brings entertainment, the latest fashion trends and more to his hometown.
Vincent Ingram grew up with a passion for fashion and clothing design. He took that feeling and turned it into a stage play that premiered Saturday at the Mann Center.
The event is called “Going Beyond Your Dreams Fashion and Hair Show”.
Ingram will host the event, starting at 4pm and ending around 9pm at The Man Center, 507 N. Steele St. Doors open at 3 p.m. Ingram recommends people arrive at that time because there will be vendors and vendors. Food trucks on site.
“You can shop and shop after the show,” he said.
He said the event is not just a fashion show, but a play of local designers and beauticians intertwining in the story with costumes and hair.
“I wrote it myself,” he said. “It was written as a play. It is part of a fashion show. It’s a dramatic runway.”
He said hair stylists would come from out of town to watch and be a part of it, along with local clothing designers and hair stylists.
“We bring the heat to the stage at once,” he said. “We have six designers and three hairdressers.”
Ingram got his start in fashion by designing locally and making clothes for local clients. He has his own fashion design business called How it Seams.
“I’ve been designing for four years,” he says. “I started by making dresses and making wedding dresses and clothes for preachers.”
He also has a modeling team made up of local youth, who have performed at various events.
“I have a local modeling army called Dynamite Modeling,” he said. “They are for young people between the ages of four and 18.”
Going into the theater realm, he says, was just what he had to do. The story is a bit autobiographical about the ups and downs of the show over the years.
A good turnout is expected at the event.
“I expect a full house because I’m so well-known in the area,” he said. “It will be good. We are very excited.”
Tickets to attend are $15 and $15 at the door.
