Since we have done the official BBP recap, we would like to share what others thought about the event! Take a look!
“The OXDX Fall Fashion Release show was a phenomenal event that surpassed all expectations! It knocked our socks off to say the least. Krystle and I (as Blue Bird Pinup volunteer and member) were amazed at the quick influx of people entering and signing in to absorb what the show had to offer. Granted we did not view the show in its entirety but we managed to collect and share in the energy and enthusiasm of the performers and spectators. The awesome Bobby Wilson kept the flow of the show and crowd lively with his comedic timing. The ambient beats and enlightening lyrics of Nataanii Means and Supaman had folks engaged, laughing, bobbing their heads and swaying to the groove. The beautiful runway models were absolutely stunning wearing the fashions of Jared OXDX Yazzie, Jesse Metcalf, and Shayne Watson’s clothing line, topped it off with the pinup hairstyles courtesy of Blue Bird Pinups. This is what the show offered – to come together to support and stand by our Native brothers and sisters in a powerful movement of unity and positive representation of old and new contemporary Indigenous artistry. There is definitely no “misrep” when you can pack plenty of Native Americans in one room taking pride in who they are and what they contribute to our society. We are doing big things so make way for more motivated and inspired Indigenous individuals, fashions, and businesses. Big props for a successful show and look forward to next year!” — Roxie Gunz
“Hair was soo much fun! And meeting the models and seeing new faces! I loved how the entire night at the event was just positive vibes from the crowd. Observing everyone’s reaction and expression with each performance was amazing! Hearing the feedback was the best part! Overall, everyone did an amazing job!!!” –Mz. Peaches
“I love the whole concept of your organization – the idea of promoting positive images and role models based on strong, beautiful, and classy women. I love your dedication to community, volunteer work, and supporting Native businesses. Highlighting and celebrating what makes us each special and unique, and bringing that spark to others, uplifts us all. It’s a great feeling and energy, and the Pinups not only embody it, but share it with others. They pass that great energy on. You can’t help but feel a little brighter and spunkier after spending time with them!
The ladies were all so sweet, professional and fun – great vibes!
And I absolutely loved my hair – I got compliments on it all night and in the social media picture posts afterwards.
I enjoyed learning more about the Blue Birds and I’d love to do an interview/profile on the Pinups for the Beyond Buckskin blog as well. I’ll try to reconnect with you guys as soon as I catch up on my other projects. Thank you for all that you do!” — Jessica Metcalfe, Beyond Buckskin
“What an amazing collaboration with Blue Bird Pinup Gals at Jared Yazzie’s OXDX fall fashion show. The Blue Bird Pinups did an amazing Job with this years hair styling and with Shayne Watson Designs. I cannot be happier with such great hair expertise and with such great waves. They amazed me by how vintage they made my clothing with an Up-do and Down-do. I highly recommend BBP Ladies for the Best Hair Styling and for their kindness at heart. Blue Bird Pinup Ladies, thank you so Very Much.” –Shayne R. Watson
“The event this past September 19th was a huge success. That success was based largely on how smooth everything went, a responsibility taken on by the Blue Bird Pinups. The first people I contacted when I had ideas for doing another event was these ladies. The models looked absolutely beautiful and it even inspired a few fans to come to the event in their pin up style. I always have love for the BBPU’s, we need organized Native groups like this to positively represent the people. So a huge THANK YOU from the OXDX crew, we couldn’t have made this possible without your help. Now to start thinking about how to make this event even bigger and better next year :)” — Jared Yazzie
