Williamsburg Fashion WeekendVillain (50 N 3rd St, Brooklyn, New York 11211-3925) Map it $10
With the tire tracks left from the Mercedes-Benz-driven fashion week still fresh, it’s time for New Yorkers to turn their attention to the place where the magic is really happening these days, North Brooklyn. Now in its 13th year, this faithful Williamsburg anti-velvet rope affair returns with another round of fashions from emerging, community-minded designers. Heralded for their atypical catwalk presentation, this year Williamsburg Fashion Weekend runs two evenings, provides a full range of body adornment and live music. This season’s class includes IQ Test Melissa Lockwood, Mark Tauriello, King Gurvy, Derrick Hinds and more. And since all great fashion shows have swinging afterparties, WFW has one of those up their sleeve too. So dress up or come as you are, anything really goes at Brooklyn's most creative and eclectic fashion function.
