On Sunday, 9th September, Opening Ceremony and New York’s drag community presented “The Gift of Showz”, co-created by Sasha Velour. Starring a cast selected by Sasha including Jiggly Caliente, Lypsinka, Shea Couleé, West Dakota, Miss Fame and Christina Aguilera, the performers were engaged as collaborators rather than models. Wearing custom looks designed using Opening Ceremony’s Spring 2019 fabrics, the show was inspired by the idea of “Journey”. Humberto said of the theme, “Sasha’s work reminds me of my own journey. What drew me to drag shows as a teenager is the same thing that propelled Carol and I to start Opening Ceremony: a celebration of individuality, freedom of expression”.
