In case you haven’t heard, rumor has it that Style Weekly will be dropping their first ever fashion issue this Tuesday. Style covers everything from food to music to art to opinions and does it well. Some may remember Belle, Style’s brief foray into a fashion/beauty/lifestyle magazine. Sadly, it was discontinued but they must have heard our quiet laments for more fashion focused coverage in Richmond because not only did they just release the Black Book of Style and we have our upcoming fashion issue, but Style is also sponsoring the first art and fashion fundraising event for the VCU Institute for Contemporary Art. This will be the first modern art museum of it’s kind in Richmond and will also be home to VCU art student’s designs as well as a place to showcase the work of past VCU students who are now artists. Fashion and art melds so well together and this event is sure to be fun. There will be a silent auction featuring four fine art pieces, cocktails and a fashion show by Saks. You can purchase tickets (regular or VIP which provides you a seat and a swag bag) here. I will be attending and I hope to see you there. Besides, what could be more fun than cocktails, supporting a new local entity and fashion?
