Faith meets fashion.... talk 'Jesus' on runway

Preparations are underway for the first stop of the WIP the Runway Christian Fashion Show Tour produced by MAD Management Group. Faith meets fashion on the runway on November 2, 2012 at 8:00PM at The Rock Church Queens for a live-music fashion event.

WIP the Runway is a ministry platform for fashion designers. The garments presented on the runway teach people how not to fall in love with religion, but how to fall in love with Jesus Christ. A cadre of industry professionals and executives and local personalities will walk the event’s grand red carpet.
 
Corey Jones, Rocket Multimedia CEO and Sony Corporation of America Senior Vice President says, “I’ve seen the models and heard some of the entertainment that will grace the runway. I can tell you this: you’re in for a top-notch show.”
 
The show will feature four of New York City’s high fashion designers: ReciclaGEM, Madison Maxey, Lockdown International, and Don'Christian Laurence, as well as two of New York City’s celebrity designers: BruceGlen and Jules Eyes. WIP the Runway’s collection of core designers will feature Active Faith, a Christian sports apparel brand whose garments have been seen on professional athletes and celebrities like Toronto Raptors’ Landry Fields, Memphis Grizzlies’ Jerome Jordan, Houston Rockets’ “Linsanity”, and Los Angeles Clippers’ Deandre Jordan; Disciple Clothing Co. whose clothes have been worn by Justin Bieber; Warrior Poet Clothier whose line encourages young men to “save the day”; Higher Authority Clothing whose garments influence people to consider God’s offer and the message of Jesus Christ; national Christian retailer C28/Not of This World; Agape Gear an urban outfitter; and Jesus Life who believes that your clothes are an expression of your values.
 
Lanny Smith, Co-founder of the sports apparel line quietly endorsed by celebrities and professional athletes states, “When I played ball, I knew that I was giving glory to God with my talent. It was in His name that I played. I support WIP the Runway’s platform and its never-ending desire to win souls for Christ through fashion.”
 
Injuries kept Smith from the NBA so he launched Active Faith with fellow Christian athlete Anthony Tolliver of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
 
“We love God—not religion, and we’re doing just as Jesus Christ has commanded us to do; share the Gospel with the nations,” says Stephanie Gordon, the tour’s Executive Producer. Gordon has solicited the help of churches and faith-based organizations around the world to host a WIP the Runway show.
 
The Rock Church, Queens, WIP the Runway: NYC’s host, believes in a church without walls. Its mission is to preach the Gospelof Jesus Christ to all.
