A peek at the Laurs Kemp collection set to debut Wednesday night.

February’s already had a fancy lingerie show, the hubbub of New York Fashion Week, and before we officially head into March, we have one more style fest. Wednesday night Fade to Light stages its bi-annual style fete at the Crystal Ballroom, with an updated roster of designers.

This time around the multimedia show—think video, live music, interpretive dance, booty-shaking, and whatever else the designers come up with—promises well-known names like Altar, Tiffany Bean of Mabel & Zora, and Rogue Minx. Beyond the familiar lines, there are buzzed about new collections from new-ish to Portland Laurs Kemp with a modern, sunny vibe, and the return of beloved line Ms. Wood after a three-year hiatus.

In short, there’s a lot of reasons to go.
