What a feeling! Flashdance is an iconic 80s film and a terrific excuse not only to come to the Simmons Building to watch it for the 10th time, but also to rock your best ‘80s gear to take part in a Flashdance fashion show. Local media will be judging the best outfit on RiverWalk, with awesome prizes going to the top three.
The National Music Center's Synth Jam duo will lay down beats for your catwalk pass: their modern/retro 80's-influenced electronic grooves are played on vintage synthesizers for an authentic sound. The Synth Jam people say it’s “like starring in your own 80's movie, complete with a soundtrack that would be at home in Miami Vice” – or, say, Flashdance.
So come, let yourself dive, with glorious abandon, into what was called “the decade that taste forgot.” You know you want to.
Fashion show starts at 9pm, movie to follow at 10pm. Sign up in advanve for the fashion show and receive a free EV t-shirt. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Flashdance' as the subject line.
