Welcome to On the Radar, where we preview upcoming events to mark your calendars for. This Saturday, join Creative Loafing when GARMENT DISTRICT 813: 100% CUT-N-SEW takes fashion back to its roots. Inspired by New York’s Garment and Meat Packing Districts, the event focuses on the industrial aesthetic of the fashion.

Garment District 813 features Ben Chmura’s first Resort Collection: Lamia’s Wrath, and it's Ben's first show since his participation on Project Runway Season 7 and recent showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in February 2010. Ben also won Best Local Clothing Designer in Creative Loafing’s 2007 Best of the Bay Readers’ Poll and has joined us for our Project Runway Podcast throughout the season. Designer Raven Reda will also be showing her new collection: Coup D’etat

Garment District 813 is Saturday, May 1, 2010 at the Tampa Armature (Trolley Barn), at 1910 N. Ola Ave. in Tampa. Doors open at 7 p.m.; first runway show is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m., and the second show at 9 p.m.

The after party is hosted by Chmura and Reda on location immediately following the two runway shows and all guests are invited to celebrate with them. Guest DJ Curse Mackey will be spinning from Red Bull’s new die-cut dj booth.

Limited VIP seating is available for $20 and includes a gift bag. General Admission is $10.
