Amy Bond and co-creator and husband Angelo La Pietra saw an opportunity to bring celebrity designers together with local designers to build collective energy.

This groundbreaking hybrid show will include an Official Launch Party, Multiple Fashion Shows, Model Fittings, Designer Q & A Sessions, Designer Marketplace (designers will sell their clothing live and in-app), and Wrap Party.
An inspired mystery fabric challenge has the designers creating a couture garment, and Live Stream ticket holders get to vote for their ‘fan favorite’ piece.
“The couture collection from the show is going to be curated and shown as a local museum exhibition,” said co-creator and executive producer Angelo La Pietra.
The Collective provides designers an opportunity to reactivate with their fans and audiences, and engage a new community with a fun, exciting fashion week in Cincinnati.
“The Collective exists as a project to bring creative people together with the goal of really lifting everyone’s spirits,” said Amy Bond.
Bond was invited to Cincinnati last year to do a workshop for young, aspiring models. Because of COVID, and how the models felt isolated from what was going on with no way to go to New York to find an agent, or even local fashion shows to participate in, Bond saw that the models and designers were cut off from everything they wanted to do with their lives. Lives that were accustomed to fashion shows, parties, and collaborations with other creative people.
The designer’s journeys will begin at their studios through video diaries that showcase behind the scenes how the pandemic has affected their day-to-day work and artistic visions. There will be challenges and struggles to find their creative voice as they plan to showcase their collections to the world as part of The Collective.
Along with the fan-favorite mystery fabric challenge for the designers, there will also be a cash prize for a fan-favorite model, voted on by the live stream ticket audience.
"The Collective" is produced by Penguin Monkey Productions with production participation from Katalyst TV. Angelo La Pietra and Amy Bond serve as executive producers for Penguin Monkey Productions and Kat McEntee serves as executive producer for Katalyst TV. Shaun Ross @shaunross serves as executive producer and is part of the creative team and music supervisor.
