Snarky as we are, it's hard for us to write the words "hip" or "sexy" without those scare quotes around them. But it's even harder to think up any other words to describe the Lady Noir Fashion Show. Plain and simple, LN designs tee shirts and hoodies for the young and beautiful. Label owner Sharon Thiergartner makes graphics that draw on Art Deco, Pop Art, and octopi for inspiration, and the shirts themselves tend to be veil-thin and "cut to the body," i.e. tight. The event features DJ David Carvalho, snacks by superchef Ryan Scott, fancy drink giveaways, and 944 magazine's videographers capturing aallll the sexy hipness.
