Fashion Uncorked is an annual designer competition and fashion show presented by the Easter Seals of North Georgia. Details of the Fashion Uncorked 2014 events and its competing designers have been unveiled.
Norma Center , Easter Seal Development Director/Show Producer; Kenya Edwards, Fashion Show Director /Runway Coach; and Bonnie Anthony are the creative heads that will work with production staff and ten (10) competing designers to make the Fashion Uncorked 2014 Fashion Show come to life.
For this examiner, one of the best aspects of this annual production is the incorporation of children currently being served by the Easter Seal of North Georgia into the main event fashion show. The designer’s lives are forever changed as they bond with the children during garment production. Most impressionable is the sight of the children simply gleaming with pride, as they walk the runway while wearing the competing designer garments!
The top ten (10) competing designers have been announced:
- Leon Parham
- Bernard Buie
- Isaac Spry
- Marcus Brown
- Talisha White

The Fashion Uncorked beneficiary, Easter Seals of North Georgia, is a non-profit organization that has been in existence for almost 100 years, since 1907. Easter Seal’s mission is to help disabled people and their families. It was established by an Ohio-businessman named Edgar Allen after his son was killed in a streetcar accident. The seal, developed in the 30s, was a means to receive charity and the lily on the seal represents resurrection and new life.’
“We are a 501c3 non profit that works in the areas of early education, disabilities and special needs. We want our families to live, work, play and grow in our communities.
Get involved, donate your time or funds to make a difference in a child's life.” ~statement from Easter Seals of North Georgia website.
This event serves as a great platform for emerging designers to showcase their work. In addition, it generates much needed charitable revenue to continue the Easter Seal’s cause of providing services to needy families of children with disabilities.
