Exibition in Motion 2016

We want to share some fabulous images from this year’s Exhibition in Motion!

EiM 2016 10The event took place in May at SNAGneXt in Asheville, NC. A tradition at SNAG’s annual conference, the Exhibition in Motion is a live fashion show and fundraising event featuring models wearing cutting edge jewelry.

This year’s theme was Xchange: Fashioning Intersections. The idea was collaboration, calibration and cooperation, where the pieces were made in partnerships and celebrate large scale sculpture worn on the body. The 2016 coordinators were Matt Lambert and Louise Perrone (pictured at right).

Enjoy these images of some of the pieces. Photographs taken by Micah McKenzie.
