Need some hair of the dog for your Austin Fashion Week hangover? Monday, August 29th, North Loop (the black sheep of Austin shopping districts) is hosting Rock the Casbah, an exotic sampling of food, fashion, and music at Phara’s Mediterranean Restaurant and Casbah.
Starting at 8pm, Rock the Casbah will include a fashion show that previews new looks from your favorite quirky North Loop boutiques: Blackbird Clothes and Curios, Blue Velvet, Ermine Vintage, Forbidden Fruit, Green House, and Splendor.
KUT darling Laurie Gallardo will be hosting while North Loop’s resident vinyl junkies, Breakaway Records, will be providing music that promises to literally rock the casbah.
Cinco Vodka will be offering samples of casbah cosmos and photographer Katie Cowden will be snapping photos in a hookah lounge photo booth. Phara’s (byob) will be serving up complimentary appetizers while belly-dancers shimmy through the gorgeous back patio.
...and all of this for FREE!
