It’s not your typical fashion show.
The Collective Fall Fashion Event will feature a chance to shop from five local clothing and accessories sellers, see a fashion show featuring their vintage and modern clothing and eat food from caterer The Painted Table.
The event is at 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 21, at The Painted Table, 1211 N. Wishon Ave., next to the Tower Theatre. Tickets cost $35 can be purchased online by searching for “Collective Fall Fashion” at EventBrite.com.
It’s the first of what organizers hope is many events like this. It was dreamed up by the owners of Misc. Trading Co., which recently closed its downtown brick-and-mortar shop but still sells online, and Odelette Vintage, which sells online and at various events.
“It’s not going to be a traditional fashion show, but more like an old-fashion boutique showcase,” says Celeste Alexander of Odelette.
“Picture what it would be like in the 1950s in a department store.”
The models will wear a mix of one-of-kind vintage clothing and modern clothing. Their clothing and accessories will be for sale after the show, along with racks and tables of other merchandise from the five vendors.
▪ Downtown store Root, with accessories, especially hats, and clothing.
▪ The Chrome Pearl with handcrafted jewelry.
▪ The Dear Danger Mobile Boutique with its clothing inside the building.
▪ Odelette Vintage with vintage clothing.
▪ Misc. also with vintage clothing.
Says Alexander: “We’re really encouraging people to dress up. … It’s a night of fashion. Wear your vintage, whatever your style is.”
