Presented by Dunedin Fine Art Center
Get ready for Dunedin’s hottest event of the year…the 15th annual Wearable ART Fashion Show will be held at the Dunedin Fine Art Center at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24. It will feature runway presentations by talented fashion designers. Come early for the pre-GLOW at 7 p.m. and stay late for the after-party, all featuring great live music, a cash bar and the Palm Cafe open for your further gastronomic desires! 1153 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin.
According to planners, this always surprising event promises to continue to be the standard against which all other art/fashion shows are measured. Wearable ART was indeed one of the first in the area 14 years ago to showcase a growing contingent of artists working in fashion-related ways.
It continues that tradition this year featuring runway presentations by Jenna Barnes, Mark Byrne, Melissa Dolce, the Garden Fairies + Electric Diva, Johnny Hunt, Kikimora Studios, Cindy Linville, Dacota Maphis, and Frank Strunk III (with a special installation by Line Teixeira). All of this is crowned by the incredible hair and make-up artistry of Salon GW.
If the Shoe Fits… is a celebratory exhibit shown in conjunction with Wearable Art 15 that invited the arts community to create shoes in all shapes and styles, using the media of their choice. People’s Choice Awards will be determined by popular vote!
As if that’s not enough, this year DFAC is adding a fashion boutique offering artist-made wares, that they are calling GROOVE-tique. A select group of artisans will be showcasing fashion related merchandise for sale ONLY during the event and the pre- and post- parties!
Show tickets include reserved seats for the Wearable ART 15 fashion show as well as the Pre-Glow and After Party. The show is usually sold out, but Party Tickets may still be available for the indoor standing room option. Enjoy all the music and fun and catch the runway show on a huge video monitor.
