Well-Worn 

Next week's forecast: a torrential downpour of style, reaching from downtown to Germantown.

On Thursday, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Rumba Room downtown, it's the South Main Fashion Night, a fashion show featuring fall looks from the neighborhood's boutiques, including K'PreSha, Muse, Everleah's, the Seen, and more. Hair and makeup come courtesy of the street's salons. Kimberly Taylor of K'PreSha is showing looks that will transition from warmer to cooler weather, such as rompers and darker chambreys. For hair, think braids. Live entertainment for the event will include music from Tonya Dyson and bellydancing. Proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis. And, yes, there will be afterparties at the participating boutiques. "We want people to stay on South Main a little longer, to shop in the stores and eat in the restaurants," Taylor says.

Also on Thursday, at 6 p.m., is Fashion Night Out at Wish in Saddle Creek South (near the old American Café). A tent will be set up in the parking lot, with seats for VIP-ers to get the best look at styles culled from Wish's inventory. Guests will receive goodie bags and have the chance to win door prizes. Music will be provided by DJ Ben Murray. Proceeds from the event go to Friends for Life.

On Wednesday, from 5 to 6 p.m. at Theatre Memphis, Memphis Fashion Week is hosting its Emerging Memphis Designers Project — Kick-off Panel in anticipation of its 2013 show in April. Aspiring designers can learn what it takes to make it to Memphis Fashion Week, from picking looks to filling out the applications, and get valuable tips from the panelists, including John Sylvester of Sache, Catherine Walker, a buyer for James Davis, Bruce Bui, the wardrobe director of Ballet Memphis, as well as others. South Main Fashion Night, Thursday, September 6th, 6-9 p.m. at the Rumba Room. Tickets: $15 advanced from participating boutiques, $20 at the door.

Fashion Night Out, Thursday, September 6th, 6 p.m. at Wish, Saddle Creek South. Event is free. For information on VIP tickets, call 756-9671.
