Art Shanty Projects kicks off with on-ice fashion show

It was one thing to have Christmas without snow, but no snow for the Art Shanties? That would just be wrong. Fortunately, the long-awaited snowfall began just in time for the commencement of Saturday's kick off of the Art Shanty Projects. The main attraction was certainly the debut of the Sashay Shantay shack, a fashion-geared shanty that not only allowed guests to try on handmade clothing by local designers such as Danielle Everine, Rachel Blomgren and Carly Schoen, but also culminated with an on-ice fashion show featuring the designers and their friends donning the wacky, wild and wooly wares - some appropriately wearing ice skates. The Sashay Shanty organizers reported on the blog afterward, "The most frequent comment of the day 'Oh! It’s nice and warm in here.' Second most: 'Oh! It’s so cuuuuuute!'" The Shanties run daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through February 5, with a runway show happening daily.
