For weeks I’ve been meaning to write about Amy Sarabi, the Oakland designer on this season’s Project Runway. And hopefully soon I’ll write a lengthier post about her because she definitely deserves it.
But for now I wanted to spread the word that there’s going to be a Project Runway viewing party tonight at the Den to cheer Amy on. Here’s the info via The Oakbook:
To celebrate Sarabi’s success and the many, many talented designers in the city of Oakland, Skylier Blanchard-Crowder, a local designer who’s dreamed of putting Oakland on the fashion map for a while now, and several City departments — such as the Office of the Mayor, Councilmember Nancy Nadel, and the City’s Cultural Arts and Marketing division, are throwing a party. If you feel like hanging out with Oakland’s City Hall crowd or the fashion crowd, and sometimes, the two do overlap, then visit the Den at the Fox on Thursday. The reception will morph into a viewing party at 8.30 p.m. when Project Runway begins…
Viewing party for Amy Sarabi, Complimentary light hors d’oeuvres; no-host bar.
Thursday, February 18, 8 p.m. onwards, episode airs at 8:30 p.m.
The Den at the Fox Theater, 19th and Telegraph; Located across from the 19th Street BART Station.
To RSVP or if you have any questions, contact Xiaojing Wang, Office of Councilmember Nadel, at 510-238-7031 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven’t seen Amy’s work yet, check out my favorite design of hers this season – a burlap dress:
Yes, she’s that good, even with burlap, so imagine what she’ll do tonight. See you at the Den!
UPDATE: OMG! I just got a press release announcing that Amy Sarabi will be at the viewing party tonight. I can’t wait to meet her!
