I've always felt like bowling lanes were MADE for sliding down on — their slickness begs for it.
Well, if you're looking to see someone breaking the bowling alley rules, head out to 10 Park Lanes for its Pin Up, Pin Down event, happening on Sunday, Nov. 11. Decade fashion never dies, and that evening, looks from the 1940s and '50s (with a modern twist, of course) will be showcased by models down the runway — the bowling lanes.
Local boutiques will share their interpretation of the modern day pin-up girl and all items featured will be available for purchase at their respective boutiques. Participating stores include: Blush, Blvd at Southend, Vivian B, Vestique, Summerbird, JT Posh, Sloan, Nordstrom and Solstice. In addition to their clothes, the hair and makeup of each model will reflect the pin-up era too.
Guests can expect cat eye glasses, high waisted shorts, pumps and menswear. “Using the 40s and 50s as our inspiration, we've created a runway show that captures the modern day pin-up girl. A girl that exudes confidence, adventure, and charisma. I am proud to launch FashionFrontRunner with these ideals in mind," says Merritt Rea of FashionFrontRunner, who will handle the event's styling and production.
Proceeds benefit Levine Cancer Institute’s Carolinas Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
Tickets are $10 and up and can be purchased here. Doors at 6 p.m., fashion show at 8:15 p.m.
