With Cupid doing his thing this week, it’s no surprise that there’s plenty to love coming up in the days ahead. Start the week off by watching fashion bloggers hit the runway during the Polyvore Live fashion show livestream on Monday evening. Come Tuesday, Lovesick 5 puts local fashion on display during its annual what’s-love-got-to-do-with-it Valentine’s Day soiree. On Thursday, local designer Sarah Liller debuts her latest at Loft 1513 while tech-savvy fashion fans gather together during this month’s Digitally Chic meetup. Once the weekend rolls around, celebrate with a visit to the Nooworks Sale and help fashion students produce their collections during Saturday’s Feed Our Fashion fundraiser.
Sometimes you have to look back to move forward. That’s certainly the case for Parsons grad and current local Sarah Liller, who drew on the fashion of her 90’s youth to create a debut apparel collection for spring/summer that’s full of lace and innocent detail mixed with daring cut-outs and sheer panels.
Last weekend’s L’Affaire by Epifany delivered a fashion show benefiting Project Night Night, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless children by providing special Night Night packages with blankets, books and stuffed animals to shelters around the country.
