September 25th, 2010 Grand Avenue Local Designer Fashion Show featuring Sticker Club Girl
WITHOUT APOLOGIES: CELEBRATING THE DOWNTOWN PHOENIX FASHION COMMUNITY
Without Apologies is a celebration of the downtown Phoenix fashion community, taking place as part of the 2010 Grand Avenue Festival on Saturday, September 25. This series of three fashion events will be held at Bragg’s Pie Factory starting at 5:00 pm and continuing through the evening. The events will feature local boutiques, designers, and creative artists of Downtown Phoenix for a day without apologies.
Starting at 5:00 pm, the Untrashed recycled rubbish fashion show will feature wearable art made from re-purposed, reclaimed, and recycled trash. Garments will be modeled in the fashion show and then displayed alongside other delicious reclamations in the Trashy Sculpture Show for the following two months. The show will also feature a trash percussion band and typewriter corps and special performances to make the old new again.
At 7:00 pm fashions from a number of independent downtown fashion boutiques will take center stage. This is a chance to see the latest finds and hottest looks from Dragonfly Boutique, Butter Toast Boutique, Phoenicia Association, and Blueberry Deluxe Boutique. The show will be accompanied by sounds from DJ Nico.
Finishing off the night at 9:00 pm, local designers will show off their latest original fashion designs in a show that’s sure to be standing room only. This year the show will feature the work of Wicked Wear (Cia Underwood), Arte Puro, Wiskc (Kelly Calabrese), MLE Jean (Emily Blanche), and Sticker Club Girl (Lisa Michelle Jacobs) with music by DJ HeartBreaks.
All three events are free and open to the public. Free parking is allowed along Grand Avenue during the festival and in the parking lot behind Bragg’s Pie Factory, located at 1301 W Grand Ave.
Without Apologies is being sponsored by Conspire and Honeycomb Organic Hair Studio.
