It’s Wednesday and you are thinking to yourself, “It’s midweek, I have no plans for this week or weekend and I can not go to the beer garden again for an ‘evening out’. I refuse to go out to drinks with colleagues, and am desperate for something fashionable, fun and Czech. If this is you, and I expect that it might be, then I have your plans for Wednesday through Saturday evening for a mere 110 CZK at the door or 100 CZK through Ticketpro.
The 2011 Arcolor festival showcases young designers by giving the public a chance to view their creativity on catwalks and in fashion shows in the center of Prague. The 2011 ArFashion Design competition will be held on Saturday evening at Roxy/NoD, off of Dlouhá, where the winner will receive a 12,000 CZK cash prize and have the pleasure of showing their collection on the longest catwalk in Prague! (Three prime model-walking kilometers throughout these beautiful cobbled streets)
Your finalists are (drum roll, please):
THURSDAY, JUNE 23
7pm: Shopping Evening @ Julius Fashion Shop, Ostrovní 20, Prague 1
FRIDAY, JUNE 24
7pm: Fashion Show – Jane Bond @ Café NoD, Dlouhá 33, Prague 1
If you can go to one show and one show only, go to this one! Her show at Code:Mode was theatrical, entertaining and honestly made you think that you could wear a plume of feathers as a headband through the streets of Prague. I am sure the fact that the beautiful “ladies” of Tingl Tangl were involved didn’t hurt that thought process much either. Heck, if they can do it, why can’t I?
SATURDAY, JUNE 25
5pm: Fashion Show – Pavla Gerschonová
Beginning at Anděl, this carnival-like parade through the streets of Prague will follow a route that takes in Národní třída, Wenceslas Square and Náměstí Republiky before ending with a song, dance and model waltz on Old Town Square.
7pm-10pm: Performance Wrap-Up and Red Bull Art of Can with Jane Bond @ Roxy/NoD, Dlouhá 33, Prague 1
8:15pm: Final Fashion Show of Top 9 Finalists in the 2011 ArFashion Design Competition @ Roxy/NoD, Dlouhá 33, Prague 1
9:15pm: Winner of the 2011 ArFashion Design Competition @ Roxy/NoD, Dlouhá 33, Prague 1
10pm: DJ Party @ @ Roxy/NoD, Dlouhá 33, Prague 1
So, now you have something to do this weekend. Enjoy the fashion, enjoy the Campari, enjoy the music and enjoy your city!
