Fashion, art and fun will collide tonight when the Fake Fendi Social Bazaar takes over the Oriental Theater. This monthly dance party is all about breaking out of nightlife norms, with a marketplace — pop-up shops from design house UXU, pop artist Kasey Orr, accessory creators Broken Revolt and more — showcased alongside live entertainment. Aerial performers will dance overhead as local DJs Hollagramz, Ray Reed and Shimmer Shirt drop the beats. A raffle and silent auction will also be part of the festivities, along with food, drinks and plenty of photo opportunities.
The idea behind this new event is to take the club scene to an interactive level. “I’ve been throwing parties for years, and I wanted to create this environment that people look forward to coming to time and time again,” says Fake Fendi promoter Sean Horton.
General-admission tickets (eighteen-and-over only) to the Fake Fendi Social Bazaar are $15; VIP tables for four to six guests with bottle service are available for $220. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Mount Saint Vincent Home for Children. Doors open at 8 p.m. tonight at the Oriental, 4335 West 44th Avenue; visit www.itslikewhatever.com for more information.
