Tempe, AZ (May 3, 2009) CableMuse.com -- Poolside fashion shows are difficult to pull off, especially in the
evening. Unfortunately this was the case with the Generations of Beauty Fashion show created as a Benefit for the Epilepsy
Foundation of Arizona on Friday. Despite poor outdoor lighting, low attendance and other obvious glitches, a few bright moments
came from the evening.
The brightest stars came out as the sun shed its last reflection in the Phoenix pool. Local
music sensation aXXes thrusted their pure voices into the Arizona sky with a brilliant mix of harmonic rhythm and blues with
a second channel of clean rap. Moments later, Cruz with raven hair, a sultry but simple black and white outfit, and high heels
joined the three men and added another dimension of vocal talent and drama to complete a great performance of aXXes. Cruz
and aXXes are listed with RUTTOWN Records.
Except for the frequent camera
flashes, local fashion and vendors were lost in the night sky at the Tempe fashion show benefit. However, some models and
designers were able to overcome this obstacle with high attitude and designs that would command the immediate attention from
the darkest nightclubs.
