The third Local Color Fashion Show returns to Chai’s on Sunday, this year with a circus theme. The Cirque de Couture features a “fashion menagerie” of local fashion stars like Rachel Gordon, MEW Design, Clewis Reed (all three 2008 Emerging Local Designers at CFW), Sarah Maxwell, Ann Chambers Wright, and Marysia Charleston (winner of the 2009 Emerging Designer Competition at CFW). Tickets are $30 in advance, $40 at the door, and $100 VIP (includes lounge seating, cocktail waitress, and bottle service). Normal tickets also include hors d’oeuvres, and circus-themed entertainment between shows. Bring extra cash to buy any clothes you fall in love with on the runway — they’ll all be for sale. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Trident Area. The show starts at 8 p.m., but get there early for a good spot.
