It isn't a sale, but it's a good show for a good price for a good cause, and it's oh so fashionable, so how can you resist?
Tonight (Thursday, August 8), bust out your Parkdale chic and get thee down to the Fantasy Fashion Show (Club OV's, 1302 Queen West), a runway event with "clothes" designed by local artists. A fundraiser for Gallery 1313, this wacky fashion/performance art fusion thing has featured pythons, Fashion Television personalities and bizarre use of nylons in the past, so who knows what could happen? 8 pm. $10. 416-536-6778.
men for sale
OK, there aren't really any men for sale (we wish), but Grreat Stuff (870 Queen West), the store for hip ladz in the know, is busting out its best deals for an end-of-season sale featuring gear at 30 to 70 per cent off. With rumours of a whole whack of designer shirts by the likes of Tommy Bahama, Chinque, Kenneth Cole and Marzotto Lab that they want to get off their backs, they're teasing us with tales of $150 shirts marked down to $29.95. Sigh. If only we were real men. Or knew any.... 416-533-7680.
