(Said in the voice of Stefon – played by Bill Hader – from SNL) They thought of everything for fashion night at The Urban Art Bar (709 East Broadway) on Wednesday night: smoke machines, drums, photo backdrops, paparazzi, a DJ, chain smoking glamazons, and a hobo wearing a tuxedo greeting you at the door. The spacious art studio was filled with some of Southie’s most fashionable ladies and everyone was represented. There were MILF’s, cougars, yuppies, litterbugs, locals, Miley Cyrus look-a-likes, hoodsies, and some real housewives of South Boston. Photographers were on hand to capture the show that featured the clothing of Habit on East Broadway. The runway show started off with a bang. Literally there was tribal drumming by The Urban Art Bar owner Heather Carbonne and a local real estate agent Alexandra Georgready painted red from head to toe dancing about with a tambourine.
Down the catwalk came wearable fall fashions worn by some of the areas prettiest models including Michelle Talbot, Marissa Leard, and CIS blogger Heather Foley to name a few. The runway hair was styled up in modern braids and dramatic smokey eyes were created by the amazing stylists at Nurture salon. Also lending a hand with make-up was Southie gal and makeup artist Tammi McEvoy.
The Urban Art Bar bartenders were busy all night with a steady flow of fashion hungry ladies (and a few handsome and fashionable gentlemen) serving up some creative cocktails made with St. Germain. Speaking of which, St. Germain will be sponsoring a cocktail tasting this coming Monday night at The Urban Art Bar’s Wind Down Monday featuring board games from 5pm-8pm!
We hear next month’s fashion event will have a Calnan’s theme and it will have everything: scally caps, Yankee Candles, Beanie Babies, Claddagh rings, ill tempered wiener dogs, and old ladies shopping for greeting cards. We can’t wait! Special thank you to Rena and Frank for the photos!
