RetroRama: Timeless Fashion
This year RetroRama is all about the classics, such as the perfect pair of jeans, an heirloom hand knit sweater, a belt burnished with age or vintage khakis. The program includes an expanded fashion show DJ’d by Jake Rudh and featuring vintage clothes and original works by local designers Rachel Blomgren, Danielle Everine, Sarah M. Holm, Max Lohrbach and Kerry Riley. The audience is invited to strut down the runway as well, showing off their vision of a classic outfit. The party continues with classic carnival games by Lili’s Burlesque; unique vintage and designer finds at pop up boutiques courtesy of Blacklist Vintage, Cliché, the Spectacle Shoppe and Flamingo’s Divine Finds; a charm bracelet or tie clip make-it take-it craft activity; and cocktail demonstrations and samples provided by Nick Kosevich & Ira Koplowitz of Bittercube bitters, Gamle Ode Aquavit and 2 Gingers Whiskey. Finally, enjoy demos on the lost art of the old fashioned shave with Moustache Jim and GENT salon, and music with Jim’s band, "The Starlight Razors."
Support for this program has been provided by the Marney and Conley Brooks Fund.
The celebration continues at the RetroRama after party hosted by the Amsterdam Bar and Hall. Enjoy drink specials, live music and great food, 10:30 p.m. - 2 a.m.
