Thanks for your interest in the Arising Images fashion show.
As a potential vendor we wanted to provide you with some information about the event so you can decide if you want to participate.
The event will be held at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, MI on Sunday April 26th. The show starts at 6:00 with the opportunity for setup and getting ready at 3:00pm.
We are expecting 250+ people to attend the event.
The event started as part of our high school senior model program. The model program is our main marketing initiative towards high school seniors and allows current high school juniors to have fun photo shoots and events that start the second half of their junior year and end at the end of their senior year. The events include a modeling photo session, fashion show, their senior photo session, an event called “rock the dress” where they get to put on their favorite formal dress and be part of a large photo shoot with their friends. There are also movie night, photo shoots with friends, and lots more things. It’s a really great experience for them. In exchange for all this work that we are putting in, we get a lot of new clients and hopefully lots of referrals from all these girls.
The fashion show is probably the biggest and most exciting event that is part of the program. It will be the night where the girls get to see the photos from their model session for the first time. They will have their friends/family there while they walk in the fashion show and everyone cheers them on. A number of vendors will be participating in the event (DJ, lighting, photo booth, hair, makeup, photo, video). The vendors will get exposure to this market.
Vendors get to participate in the event at no cost other than their own time/materials. Arising Images will be paying for the Royal Park ballroom rental. Arising Images will also provide the vendors with cold sandwiches for dinner.
Vendors will be given the opportunity to distribute some type of printed advertisement. We will have vendor tables where the guests can see and collect information. We will also be giving our models goodie bags if you would like to include something special for them. Vendors will be able to include something to give away as part of the raffle. They will be announced at some point during the event. They will also be credited on any post-event blog post, slideshows, etc. Their information will be provided to all of our high school senior clients in our general information packet throughout the year.
Here’s a list of things that previous vendors have provided in the past:
DJ – Music, lighting, televisions to show model pictures.
Florists – Table centerpieces, corsages for the models, a rose to give to each model.
Hair Stylists – Providing our models with a “polished off” look. The models arrive with their hair done how they normally would if they were going some place fancy. The stylists will then “polish” their look, adding extra curls, body, etc. to make it look better. No up-do’s or any other time consuming styles.
Make up Artists – Providing the models with makeup. The girls can come with foundation already on or whatever you request to make your job easier.
Photobooth – Providing a photobooth with props and printed photo strips.
