Stylish Events: July 22–August 5
Alley 33 Fashion Show
Saturday, July 26 6pm
33rd and hawthorne
This Saturday equals fashion Christmas in the style world: the once-a-year return of Alley 33. One of the most fun and shopping friendly fashion shows in the entire city, the alleyway off Hawthorne (next to Mag-Big) turns into an outdoor runway with a kickin' lineup of local designers. But, the most ingenious part of the event, is the producing trio that runs the event (Cassie Ridgeway, December Carson, and Elizabth Mollo) require all the garment in the show to be ready-to-wear. That means what you see is not theoretical runway pomp, it's something you can turn around and buy from a local store and support our industry.
Designers: KD Designs | Sarah Bibb for FOLLY | Eve Skywalker by Eve Styles | Amelia | Carolyn | Hart Designs | Indie Ella | Beth Fuge | The Incorporated Clothing | Lizz Basinger | Mag-Big | Sara Bergman Apparel | Copper Union | Myriam Marcela Apparel | Moulagerie | Katie Guinn Apparel | Volacious | Machine Apparel | Tiffany Bean for Mabel and Zora | Quick Study
