Fashion shows from SoLily, Peace Couture and k.hendrix coming up
Tampa Bay Fashion Week has passed us by, but that doesn't mean the well is dry. Hey, we're poets and we didn't even know it!
Uh, that was enough cliche action to last a lifetime (and a couple more for the road in this sentence). Anyway, a few fashion events are happening around town in the next couple weeks we want to let you know about.
- This Saturday, you can catch the SoLily Fashion Show & Glitterama at PUSH Ultra Lounge, 128 3rd St. S in downtown St. Pete. Anything with the word "glitterama" in the name sounds like it has potential. It's the debut of the first line from SoLily, from the local design duo Lisa Alban Nicks and Holley Sinn, host of Studio 10. The friends have a "sparkle hippie" aesthetic. You can check out their collection here. The event is from 7-10 p.m. at the club. Tickets are $5 online and $10 at the door. Be sure to print out your purchase confirmation, which is your ticket. The first 100 guests will get swag bags. Proceeds benefit Feeding Children Everywhere.
- On Nov. 9, check out Peace Couture at the Italian Club of Tampa, 1731 E. 7th Ave. in Ybor City. Peace Couture is an art, music and fashion show that benefits the Spring of Tampa Bay, a domestic violence shelter. You'll see fashions from House of Donshey, Sandra Hagen, Spathose, La France, Wicked Betty and the Spring Boutique, plus art from Danny Olda and music from Zulu Wave and Guiltmaker. Tickets are $50 for individual tickets (or $150 for four) and $75 for VIP with a gift bag and a reserved seat. Sponsorships are available from $500-$5,000. Register online.
- Finally, check out the Kravitz+Hendrix launch party at 6 p.m. Nov. 15 at the k.hendrix showroom, 531 Central Ave. in downtown St. Petersburg. Kravitz+Hendrix is a collaboration between sports agent and entertainment attorney Ed Kravitz and fashion designer Kimberly Hendrix. They're getting together to launch a new talent management agency for athletes, models and artists, helping local folks in the fashion industry advance their careers. Two nights later on Nov. 17, Hendrix will be showing her new holiday fashion line at Chillounge in St. Petersburg's Straub Park. Doors open at 6 p.m. Admission is $25 in advance and $35 at the gate. A limited number of VIP tickets will be available for $80.
That should be enough to keep you busy through Thanksgiving!
