Preview: Cliche's spring fashion show

Sketch by Maritza Ramirez with graphic design by Anthem Heart

Local boutique Cliché is the hippest shop in town, so of course their bi-annual fashion shows are always can't-miss events. Their most recent show last June launched a handful of some of the city's most promising local designers, including Maritza Ramirez, Emily Weich, Jenny Carle Designs, Renate Adjei, Arwyn Birch, and Ivan Idland, alongside the shop's more established favorites - Red Shoe Clothing Co., Amanda Christine Designs, Anthem Heart, and kjurek couture.

Thursday night's "Avoid the Grey" show at Old Arizona includes 14 such designers' spring 2009 collections, as well as collections by 11 of the shop's accessories designers. I'm most excited to see the collaboration between clothing designer Maritza Ramirez and graphic designers Anthem Heart. Here's a preview of the designs you'll be seeing if you're lucky enough to already have a ticket. (The show's already sold out.) Be sure to have a notepad handy - the designs will be in store Friday morning.
