The DreamWalk Fashion Show is an extravagant, costume-themed fashion show aimed at the 99% of people who don’t meet traditional, restrictive “model” criteria. These inclusive runway events highlight individuals of all genders, sizes, ages, ethnicities, sexualities and abilities as part of the body positivity movement. The goal of the DreamWalk Fashion Show is to promote fair representation on social media and fashion runways, and has been described as the Anti-Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
In 2016, sisters Alexis (Lexi) and Alyse Scaffidi were watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and “knew it wouldn’t be possible” to be participants due to their height. Instead, they created their own fashion show that embraced body inclusivity with “women in wheelchairs, cancer survivors, and models with dwarfism” for the first annual event.
The first DreamWalk Fashion Show was held on July 2nd, 2017 at Hill Theatre Studio in Paulsboro, NJ. The models, known as “Dreamers”, included over 20 women of all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities and sexualities. The show featured cancer survivors, Julie Kramer and Tessa Snyder, as well as individuals with genetic disorders and chronic conditions.
The event also featured a musical performance by Zach Matari, who wrote the song “Mirror” specifically for the show. It was dubbed the “Anti-Victoria Secret Fashion Show,” by large media outlets and went on to receive viral attention online.
The 2018 DreamWalk Fashion Show was held Sunday, November 4th at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA. The 2nd annual event featured 65 Dreamers and musical performers, including Zach Matari & The After Parti, Kicking Sunrise, and Owlcappella.
The 2019 DreamWalk Fashion Show is scheduled to take place at Live Nation’s Gramercy Theatre in New York City on Sunday, September 15, 2019. The show will feature 65 Dreamers. Performers include Zach Matari, Switch Mob, and Kicking Sunrise.
