Zivity, an online platform where photographers, video artists, models and fans connect, celebrated its second anniversary and the launch of its new Web site with a provocative evening and striptease fashion show at RF80 in San Francisco on August 6, 2010.
Highlights included a visually sexy and sometimes shocking display of photographic images of girls, gays and groceries by Merkley, and an up close and sensual aerial act by Ricochet prior to a runway fashion show. The runway featured Zivity models in clothing by local designers Danielle Pettee, Nocuous, Sugarpuss, Magdalena May Trevor, Steam Trunk, Invisible Hero, MonTree and Chrystie Cappelli. Models then took most of the clothes off, in a striptease-style auction, for charity.
