International Fashion Expo aims to celebrate OpSail 2012 through fashion & arts

The International Fashion Expo will take place June 10, during OpSail 2012, at the New Colony Theater in Portsmouth. Designed to merge the fashion and art worlds with the historical maritime event, international designers with local ties to Hampton Roads, as well as global designers, will showcase their collections and offer a tribute to OpSail with a vintage presentation celebrating 200 years of fashion. Some of the featured designers, who will also show at VA Fashion Week in October, include Mikasa La’Charles, Lizzie London and Willie Charles. A fashion & beauty emporium featuring various vendors will open the show. Live musical performances will be featured as well. Tickets are available now for $25.
