Hi Kids-

BALTIMORE, MD -- Be sure to mark your calendars for an eclectic night of Fashion, Visual Art & Music at the Baltimore Museum of Industry for the 3rd annual Charm City Fashion Show (CCFS). This dress to impress soiree is taking place on Saturday, April 23rd and will feature original clothing designers, boutiques, live music and visual artists. Doors open at 8pm with music from Charm Ci...ty Soundsystem (DJs Bryan Cosgrove & Bo Hebert) and a fully stocked cash bar & after-party location provided by Mother's Federal Hill Grille.

The 3rd annual Charm City Fashion Show will be showcasing a wide variety of fashion, from classic Haute couture designs to modern, hip twists on east coast fashion. Hand-picked by fashion coordinator, Colleen Kimberly, designers and local boutiques include NATTY PAINT, PEDX, Whimsy Boutique, F.L.E.X Clothing, Boulevard Boutique at DeBois Textiles, Chela Vintage, Adorn by Sarah Lewis, Babe (a boutique), Couture Closet, Sixteen Tons, Christopher Schafer Clothier & Monster Lou. Nearly doubling the size of the designers & boutiques from 2010 to 2011, expect to see some amazing collections up on the runway.

Fashion show goers will be treated to the music of Baltidelphia's "Damn Right!" (myspace.com/damnrightmusic) as they warm up the crowd with their electronic breaks, vocal samples and pop synths. The post fashion show entertainment will be provided by Baltimore's own, "LAZERBITCH" (lazerbitchmusic.com). Led by fashionista, Libby Picken and DJ/Instrumentalist/Producer, Mad Max, their viral beats and electro-pop vocals will be keep the dance party going into the night.

Visual art displays will be presented by CCFS vets Jonathan Blake (crazyredbeard.com) & Marshall Adams (marshalladams.com). Jonathan Blake, an integral part of the east coast music scene, will be focusing on live paintings with his partner, Jamie Morgan. Marshall Adams, a very talented muralist and world traveler, will be showcasing the variety of his artistic endeavors as well.

Conveniently located on Key Highway in Federal Hill and equipped with free parking, the Baltimore Museum of Industry sits right on the Inner Harbor offering a fantastic view of the water front, downtown and our beloved Domino Sugar and Natty Boh signs. The collection at the BMI, which fashion show goers are free to explore, embodies the event by showing the melting pot that makes up Baltimore. "The collection explains how a visitor’s ancestor, no matter his or her station in life, race, ethnic background, or occupation might have contributed to this development. This heritage, central to Baltimore’s image of itself, is only being preserved at the BMI." (thebmi.org)

This event has and will only be made possible by some amazing organizations found in and around Baltimore. Lending a hand from last year are the promoters of all things awesome Fortune5Fifty and friends/event documentarians ChangeUpMagazine. Joining the CCFS for the first time this year will be Urbanite Magazine, Gutter Magazine, The Baltimore Fashion Alliance & M Salon of Federal Hill.

In addition to being a great time, the CCFS will be helping to raise money for Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) and hosting the CKC who is raising money for "Little Kids Rock", helping to get music back into underfunded public schools. These are both very worthy causes you can feel good about supporting.
