Over the past couple of years, the dual presence of the Athens Fashion Collective and vintage clothing boutique Community has helped to organize the fashion-minded in Athens into a movement based on a local and sustainable ethos. AFC’s biannual fashion shows introduce young and upcoming designers to Athens’ tight-knit scene, while Community provides them with a place to trade ideas and garments throughout the year. When AFC decided to take some time off to focus on its fall 2013 show, four designers and Community employees organized their own spring event, SHOWCASE, featuring spring and summer styles. Organizing group [amb]ientmade tells Flagpole the show will feature reworked vintage or pre-worn garments, as well as original clothing. Glasscrafts plays before the runway show. All proceeds benefit PALS of Athens Musicians. The event begins at 9 p.m. and costs $5.
