RENEGADE 'RUNWAY' Starting Thursday, Sept. 27, Kayci Wheatley and her shop, Moxie and the Compound, a great venue showcasing many local designers, will present its own Project Runway-style competition, following along in sequence beginning with season one, episode one. Up to 20 designers may participate, and yes, Your Style Avatar is one of the judges. You can bet we'll see a little of everything from sheer genius to creations that make our eyes bleed. But that's the fun of it, right? For complete details, go to www.moxieandthecompound.com.
