One independent fashion designer. One drag queen muse. Two hundred glamorous, fanciful, unique dresses created over twenty-four years. That’s the magic equation for the DeYoung Museum’s extravaganza, “Mr. David for Juanita More! 24 Years of More.” This one-night-only runway show is the story of a friendship between creator and muse—an epic selfie of one of San Francisco’s most enduring creative collaborations.
The lady and legend (and 7x7 July/August 2013 cover model) Juanita MORE! may be famed for a few things: 1) her bedazzling fashion statements; 2) her bewitching signature scent of tuberose and musk; and 3) her weekly Booty Call parties in the Castro. That party gets jacked up to 11 for the queen's legendary Pride Party, during San Francisco's biggest weekend.
