In a delightful trend, several of the city’s fashion shows have turned into reliable annual fests that continue to grow into stronger and stronger productions. Such is the case with Alley 33, choosing this year to focus on local designer-manufacturers who create ready-to-wear clothing for everyday use.
Producers Cassie Ridgeway says, “When we put together the line up, I did a lot of soul-searching about viability of businesses in our city. I really believe the collections presented by these designers showcase a broad spectrum of talent that is committed to the people. These are the designers whose garments can be found in our closets. I personally own a garment by nearly all of them, and I am so honored to bring them together for this event.”
Come support your local gang (and have a hell of a time doing it) at this year’s show.
