Some things old, some things new and some things just created. Check your calendar, call a girlfriend and come join us this Friday, August 5th for our second annual Wearable Arts Benefit Fashion Show. The event coincides with Art Walk First Friday, Art in the Heart (downtown Vancouver’s annual Festival of the Arts). There is an extra big focus on local artists and designers as they showcase their abilities and art on the sidewalks throughout the downtown area, Friday the 5th, 5-9pm and Saturday the 6th, 10am – 4pm. Many will be selling their ‘one-of-a-kind’ creations. To add to the festivities, there will be an outdoor fashion show on 9th and Main St. We are very excited to be a part of this event showcasing vintage clothing from the 50’s. Together with Swoon and Beigeblond hair studios, we will have 10 models with 20 outfits to walk the runway. These terrific outfits come from our stores and will be available for purchase after the event. The show will also include live music, 20 additional models showcasing local designers, local clothing retailers, jewelry and accessory makers and two additional hair salons.
The show will start at 7pm. 150 tickets are available for seats. By purchasing a ticket you will get the enjoyment of sitting while watching the show, however, you are more than welcome to stand and watch. Tickets are $10 each or 2 for $15. All proceeds go to our local Mosaic Arts Alliance. I have a limited quantity of tickets available. If you would like to have me hold one, two or more for you, let me know. I will be in our store Wednesday – Friday, 11am – 6pm.
Hope to see you soon!
