Athens, Georgia is blessed with a plethora of vibrant small businesses. In all corners of town, our businesses work together to support one another and offer opportunities for guests to be a part of the fun. Perfect example? The Athens Fashion Invasion.
On November 15th, well-known vintage shop Agora on East Clayton St. presents the "Athens Fashion Invasion" at the 40 Watt Club on East Hancock St., with all proceeds benefiting AIDS Athens. The night will celebrate a variety of businesses: salons, restaurants, and fashion by local boutiques. Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8! Admission is $12.
Agora owner Airee Hong said, "I wanted to celebrate the local businesses that make Athens so great and this is a way they can. The local salons do so much with hair shows. We approached some of the best known restaurants in Athens like Last Resort, 5 & 10 and Porterhouse so they could sponsor food. But more important, we're doing this all for charity. Everyone will have a great night and a huge dance party at the end. It's totally Athens style."
Expect a fashion show contributed by Heery's, Suska, Community, Flirt Fashions, Dynamite, Showpony, Frontier, Whole: Mind. Body. Art., and Agora.
Styling will be provided by Model Citizen Salon, City Salon, DM3, Lauren Howard, Mint Salon, and MAC Cosmetics.
Enjoy the tastings of 5&10, The National, The Last Resort Grill, Porterhouse Grill, Epting Events, East West Bistro.
Sponsored by: Boybutante, Local Notion, CJS Creative, Directional Dimensions, Transmetropolitan, Village Wine & Spirits, Cutter's, Capitol Room, Shokitini, Ashford Manor, Copper Creek.
