The perfect opportunity for Fashion Show bingo
New York City’s fashion scene, fortunately, does not discriminate on nationality when it comes to creativity and talent. In fact, this city has been a melting pot of cultures from different countries and continents, which can account for the mishmash of wardrobe designs on the runway. One of these came in the form of the 2013 Greek American Fashion Week held last September. The event was sponsored by the Greek America Foundation, a non-profit organization which creates scholarships for fashion and design students. The fashion week showcased established and emerging designers of Greek descent.
Another remarkable thing about NYC is its open-armed acceptance of leisure activities, especially the fad nowadays: bingo games. New Yorkers have added a twist to it by hosting variations of the game such as the Rebel Bingo. Bingo halls also abound in New York, and enthusiasts incorporated the game into the things they’re passionate about: there’s a New York Comic Con Bingo, New York Marathon Bingo, and New York Fashion Week Bingo, among others. There are even films and documentaries about the game, that it’s now considered as a sub-culture.
Marveling at fashion models donned with Grecian ensembles a la the stylish Afro-Dity of BingoGodz will be more fun with a bingo game. Vanity Fair created a bingo card catered for the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, which we can adapt for the Greek American Fashion Week in the years to come. The following items could be included in our bingo cards:
· Nude lips
· Tattoos covered with concealer

· Body glitter
· Angel wings
