A Week of Freegan Fashion! You are cherry-cordially invited this Friday, January 25 at 10pm, to The Second Freegan Fashion Show: Threadbare! Come see our trashy models walk the beige carpet runway in one-of-a-kind handmade costumes spun out of scavenged scrap material. Cheer on amateur Freegans as they strip off the outfits they've been wearing for the last two weeks and threadbare it all! This is a night to reject commercial control of our self-images and reclaim pride in the sexiness of creativity. All are invited to participate as models or fashion designers. Freegan Fashion Week starts this Tuesday, with a design workshop, and continues Wednesday and Thursday with more clothing making and preparation for Friday night's party: Tuesday, January 22: Freegan Fashion Design Workshop, 7pm - 12am. We recommend starting your costume as early as possible so you don't feel rushed. At "El Dompe" (Morgan Ave. Loft, see below for directions). Wednesday, January 23: Freegan Fashion Design Workshop, 6pm - 12am. More costume making for those who need it. At 123 Community Space (see below for directions). Thursday, January 24: Costume Completion, Food Preparation, and Decoration Party, 10pm-2am. Finish your outfit, then help cook and decorate our event-space with three bags of non-descript clothing used creatively. At "El Dompe" (Morgan Ave. Loft, see below for directions). Friday, January 25: The Freegan Fashion Show 2: Threadbare! 10pm-late. At "El Dompe" (Morgan St. Loft, see below for directions). The Freegan Fashion Show is a fundraiser supporting the Freegan Bike Workshop. There is a suggested donation of $7. Food is free. Dresses will be raffled. Following the show, stay and dance till the wee hours. Address: "El Dompe." 15 Thames St. Two blocks from the Morgan Ave. L train.
