Mondays: Hit up Gaslight Refueled (8pm) for live stand-up comedy with funny peeps from Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, NBC, and more, with host Vicky Kuperman.
Tuesdays: Hit up Open Mic (6pm) where the legendary Gaslight stage plays host to singers, poets, comics, and storytellers with host Manoo Halati.
Unconventional, eco-friendly, craftsmanly.
These words best describe this year's Williamsburg Fashion Weekend aesthetic. Check out the shows this Friday and Saturday to get the first look at some of these new-age fashion pioneers, and a head start on the "what's next" of fashion. The event will continue to act as liaison for young and emerging designers as it celebrates its seventh season showcasing the work of these small-scale artists who have their eyes set firmly on the future of fashion.
This year's niche is an emphasis on eco-friendliness, artisan techniques and transparent business practices. WFW will feature a dozen up-and-coming designers who will display their non-traditional pieces in equally abstract formats including live music and dance demonstrations as well as mixed-media spectaculars. Arthur Arbit, founder and curator of WFW and designer himself, shares the same passion for the rare and revolutionary. He is interested in combining all forms of performance art into his shows and moving away from the traditional runway method.
