‘ We have no brighter or stronger fire than what is burning in our creative souls ’ – Yana Flame
The Flame International Fashion and Art Festival has once again demonstrated their celebration of the spirit of ‘Tolerance and Inclusivity’ in a buzzingly festive atmosphere with wonderful live musical performances.
Sharing a vision of diversity yet unity there were performances from various backgrounds. This created a rich variety of entertainment throughout the evening from performance artists, vocalists and musicians. Their excellent performances created a wonderful atmosphere the whole evening including during the fashion catwalk collections.
There was the talented Stanley Volk the Sinatra tribute singer who was then followed by the captivating opera singer Sophia Tselepidou from the Greek and German philharmonic theatre. There then followed a brilliant performance by talented Alesja on electric violin. Other performing artists on the night were Katie B and Elizabeh De Bransor, Angel McKenzie, Letitia Antoinette Kapuscinska.
Art exhibited at the event were by professional artists at the top of their trade: Yana Flame, Marta Chorostowska and Anna Mazzotta. Yana Flame auctioned off one of her very first artistic paintings of icon Marilyn Monroe for charity which was won by actor and entrepreneur Scott Matthews. With the auction of this painting a substantial sum was raised which would be going towards helping to support and sponsor young talents for future Flame Fashion and Art Festivals.
