Cape Cod Maritime Museum
The Current Quarterly’s Summer Fashion Show with its focus on local shops, local musicians and local causes, will be a continuation of LoveLocal Fest’s theme of celebrating our Cape Cod community.
The Current Quarterly, Cape Cod’s first fashion magazine, began as an effort to showcase local boutiques and the unique products they carry. Small local businesses are the backbone of the Cape Cod community, and a big reason visitors and residents enjoy their time spent here. If the locally owned clothing stores, galleries, gift shops, and restaurants go away, so does the character of Cape Cod.
One of the main reasons thriving local businesses are so important to this community is because of their constant support for local causes and generosity to local nonprofits. With this is mind, The Current Quarterly hosts a fashion show four times a year, where the magazine’s advertisers have the chance to showcase their clothing while raising money for a local charity.
The Current Quarterly Summer Fashion Show will take place at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum, located at 135 South Street overlooking the Hyannis Harbor – a perfect venue to enjoy the summer weather and summer fashions of Cape Cod.
They are also the perfect recipient of the funds raised by the $20 admission fee to the event. The Cape Cod Maritime Museum celebrates and recreates the history of the industry on which Cape Cod was founded and then built. They are also a great partner to the local school systems, providing learning opportunities in science, arts, culture and math for students of every age. The money raised will help them continue their educational and cultural programs, as well as bring their facility to a level to which they can bring international maritime exhibits to the Cape.
The fashion show will feature clothing from boutiques from across the Cape, for every age and all styles. Participating boutiques include: Ellie Kai, ARTichoke, Shift Eco Boutique, Shine Boutique, Sass on Main, Frances Francis, Fisherman’s Daughter, The Picket Fence, Consigning Women, Odile, Savvy on Main, Nicholas Harrison Gallery, Mulberry Corners, TK Perry, Bedroom I’s, Cape Chic, Wicked Thrift, Shawl Boutique & Consignment, Sundance and Weekend.
Of course, the event would be incomplete without music and drinks.
DJ Sinnetti will play the beats for the models on the catwalk, and Cape Harmony will close the show with a performance immediately following their debut as fashion models.
