This Weekend: Mona Lucero's "Felliniesque" fashion show channels the gorgeous surreal

When I think of Fellini's film

, I think of beautiful women in big hats on the beach -- the gorgeous surreal. When local designer Mona Lucero chose "Felliniesque" as the theme for her boutique's eighth-anniversary fashion show, she turned to the dictionary. "I thought, 'Do I really know what it means?'" Lucero says. "It turns out to mean something like a dreamlike quality. Now, I don't know if my concept is really what you would call dreamlike, so let's just say it's like

my

dreams." Those dreams, whatever they might be -- a mixture of Lucero designs and stunning makeup by Brows -- will come true tomorrow at the Mona Lucero Design Boutique, 2544 15th Street.

. Given the restricted space of the boutique, Lucero is planning the event as part runway show and part -- this is where it gets really creative -- a series of fashion vignettes; it will play out in four themed segments, including dressy, day wear, glamor and (Lucero's favorite?) the avant garde. And anyone already familiar with Lucero's artful couture knows without a doubt that it will be smashing. The fashion show is at 8 p.m. and repeats at 10 p.m.; Lucero is requesting a $10 donation from attendees, which will benefit the Colfax Community Network. For more information visit
