We're Freaking OUT! Fashion Freakout IV

Spring fun begins with Fashion Freakout.

We're Freaking OUT! Fashion Freakout IV

Forget about Groundhog Day: We always know when spring is around the corner in Austin because it's time for a Fashion Freakout bash at Mohawk. Anticipated with an eye on the weather while scratching one's head in the closet every year, it marks the start of a busy few months as South by Southwest

will steamroll through sooner than anyone wants to admit, and then we careen into the spring festival season. Look for plenty of great looks, both on and off the runway at Fashion Freakout. Event organizer Audrie San Miguel has seen it come a long way in four years. Founded in 2008 as a way to showcase some of Austin's best vintage fashion in a rock setting, it is the event that illustrates how closely art, fashion, and music are fused here, since artists and musicians rely on vintage stores for an affordable way to express themselves, and develop their own looks in the process. Since its first year, it regularly sells out, with every level of the Mohawk jammed with Austinites who have been inside for too long. This year, Prototype Vintage Design, New Bohemia, and Laced With Romance come together to show how looks of the past become very modern in the right hands. Avant Salon and Spa will again conjure crazy spirits with hair and makeup, while host Matt Bearden comes back for another round, and what may be the highlight of the night: Gary Glitter cover band, Leaders of the Gang. Get your tickets early here. We can't think of a better way to start the season.
