This is the season to Deck The Runway! With the holiday’s right around the corner, Francesca Watson is set to produce the 4th Annual Deck The Runway on Saturday, December 3, in Orlando, Florida.

What are your hopes and visions for this upcoming 4th Annual Deck The Runway 2022? 

This year the theme is inspired by the elegance of black and gold with designers being featured from different parts of the country. We have designers coming from Wyoming, Philadelphia, Virginia, Denver, Orlando, and two from Atlanta. Of course I am the lead designer of the show! So, a total of seven designers. 

This show will be hosted by Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Lyrica Anderson. She will also do a special performance of her song “Feenin”. In addition to our host, we will have a special runway walk competition between two talented models in hopes to award the Model of the Year Award presented by Raelia Lewis, an America’s Next Top Model Alumna. 

We do have a list of sponsors that include Tucker Enterprise Services, Inc, Raelia Lewis,  and Stephen King. In addition to the sponsorships, we have Claire Sulmers the CEO of Fashion Bomb Daily as a special guest and media partner.

Let’s chat more about the seven designers who were handpicked. What process did you go through to spotlight these designers?

The designers include Fancy by Francesca Watson from Atlanta, GA, Brittni Schmit from Wyoming,  Melissa Breaux from Virgina,  Rekha Ananthanpillai from Philadelphia, Matthew T. Mucha from Atlanta, Anton LaRosa from Denver, Colorado and finally Leza Parigotti from Orlando, Florida.   

Deck The Runway is open to any emerging designers that want to apply and participate in the show.  My process of choosing each designer is based on their submitted portfolios and a review of select pieces. Of course, each designer that is participating is amazing and after reviewing the application, I do extend an offer with more details about the show with hopes that they will say yes. This is always an exciting time!
