Don your gilt-tooled masks. Fluff your cravats and smooth your satin gowns. Paint over your beauty marks with black hearts and dainty spades. It’s too early to put away your Mardi Gras finery just yet; The weekend has come for Williamsburg Fashion Weekend,in all the glory of its twelfth season.
Williamsburg Fashion Weekend is being very celebratory about the holidays this year. Last Saturday marked the release of their 2nd magazine issue. The issue, which was holiday themed, was given out at their Winter Bawl, held at creator of WFW Arthur Arbit’s painting-filled loft. Photos from the event appear around this post for your voyeuristic enjoyment (or tag yourself proud if you’re in them).
The magazine was available in print at the event. It’s now available to read up on the web. This issue focuses on, in addition to showcasing local talent, the need to restructure the fashion industry, and does so by featuring stories on a local factory and manufacturing. The magazine also offers a detailed shopping guide and map of where to shop locally for the holidays. It will also be available in print form at the Williamsburg Fashion Weekend Holiday Market this upcoming weekend, December 15th and 16th.

I may have punk roots, but a few of my favorite things have evolved to include other decades mixed with the present: glam, fur accents, worn leather jackets, slim silhouettes and floppy hats.
Southern-born gent Billy Reid had his first, full-on runway for men and women at Chelsea’s Eyebeam Studios tonight, keeping pre-show crowds tame with a scintillating mix of Dogfish ale and sultry blues… until the night began.
