The Internet may have changed the world of fashion, but most shoppers agree that there’s nothing like browsing the racks with their own two hands.
That’s the principle behind the success of Strange Fruit Vintage, an online store for vintage clothing that also takes it to the streets in the form of pop-up shops. And this Friday, Strange Fruit Vintage will up the ante with its “Everyday People Fall and Winter Fashion Show” at the Artist in Memphis Co-Op Studios on Madison.
DJ Manus, along with performances by Artistik Approach, Knowledge Nick, and Lila, will provide ambience at the show, which will showcase more than 70 looks from Strange Fruit’s extensive 1980s clothing selection. Each outfit will be carefully styled by Strange Fruit mastermind Shalishah “Petey” Franklin, whose modern sensibility and eye for quality pieces have been the driving force behind Strange Fruit’s success.
The Co-op Studios on Madison is the latest local venue on Strange Fruit’s resume, which includes earlier pop-ups at Broad Avenue’s Odessa and South Main’s Muse Inspired Fashion. So if you are already pining for leather jackets and stirrup pants, don’t worry. You can stick around for Strange Fruit’s pop-up shop after the show. We promise you won’t leave empty-handed. — Halley Johnson
