In 2010, the 1st Fashion Defined concept show was held in Columbia, SC. We're now proud to bring our 6th show to the world - Runaway in America's Queen City of Charlotte, NC. A concept show is a unique live experience that brings numerous avenues of the arts together in order to deliver a story-like production that challenges the mindsets of our audience. With a high focus on fashion, Fashion Defined's concept shows utilize visual arts, poetry, dance, music, & film in seamless productions that target specific social topics in one-of-a-kind fashion.

Runaway is our 6th concept show and also our most intimate. Taking place in the Mint Museum Randolph's Van Every Theater, the theater-in-the-round style space will offer our audience an experience like no other.  With only 160 seats, we challenge your perception, invite you to witness a story that applies to each and every one of us, and allow us to ask you just one question - where are you from?

Our purpose is to not only showcase fashion and other art forms in performance, but to also provide meaning of various terms and ideas and give exposure to current events shaping our communities. With a season of various events, community service initiatives, and culminating with our annual concept show, we hope to be a resource to artists of all mediums and provide a platform to increase the visibility of their work. We want to work with you!
