Outfits more outrageous than Lady Gaga? Yep, in Dunedin

The annual Wearable Art Fashion Show has become a big deal and improbable hit for the Dunedin Fine Art Center, beloved for its traditional offerings such as art classes and family programs. The fashion show, which began seven years ago, out-Gaga'd Lady Gaga before there was a Lady Gaga, with artists creating outfits that might include pyrotechnics or raw meat. This year's lineup includes those new to the game and veteran favorites: Rocky Bridges and his wife, Kathleen, Johnny Hunt, Ivan, Monica Londono, Kaitlin Lynch, Leah Pecoraro, Joshua Veasey and Rogerio Martins, whose confection is shown. There's also an after-party with music by the Lambasters. The whole shebang at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd., begins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The runway show kicks off at 9 p.m. followed by the after-party and live music. General admission tickets are $15; reserved seating is $35 to $75. (727) 298-3322; dfac.org.
