Tonight at 19:00, the doors will open on an event we’ll happily salute: Marching (R)evolution, a military-inspired fashion show featuring the work of local designers Carly Mikkelsen and Jasmin Jian.
With hair and make-up by stylists from The San Francisco Institute of Esthetics & Cosmetology, electro funk band Elle Nino performing live and DJ TV Wonder on the decks, the free-to-attend evening organized and sponsored by City College of San Francisco fashion students puts the focus on men’s and women’s apparel born of a war zone aesthetic, but adapted for everyday wear.
There’s also a much simpler impetus for the Monday night fashion break. Says the event director Daphne Clarke, “We are pretty much throwing a party, because we love to party.”
And, in our book at least, that’s something worth fighting for.
Marching (R)evolution: doors open at 7 p.m., fashion show at 8 p.m. at Horatius, 350 Kansas St., SF, www.horatius.com. For reserved seats, email marchingrevolution (at) yahoo (dot) com.
