Saturday: "Avoid the Grey"
For more than seven years, beloved boutique Cliché has made their annual Avoid the Grey fashion show their signature event. But this year, they're ditching the runway for a less traditional showcase of their bevy of local talent. Inspired by the idea of voyeurism, local designers including Danielle Everine, Needle & Black, Amanda Christine, K.Jurek Couture, and Rachel Blomgren will each show one over-the-top look viewable through individual chambers. The multi-media event is rounded out by artwork by Bryant Locher, Caroline Debevec, Daniel Jaffe, Emilie Robinson and Isa Gagarin, a short film screening from Andrea Bursott, a cash bar, and tunes from DJs Ken Hannigan and DJ Cardigan (AKA Cliché co-owner Josh Sundberg). Tickets are $10 and available in advance at Cliché (2403 Lyndale Avenue S, Minneapolis). (Photo: Cody Lidtke)
