Have a nightcap in BED at Suede
Trying to get a certain someone to go to bed with you? Suede nightclub saves you the trouble of finding a pickup line and allows you to ask the obvious question with BED, its weekly Sunday-night soiree, where you can lounge on one of 12 king-size beds covered in satin sheets and absorb the suggestive atmosphere, from candle lighting and enticing music to chocolate-covered strawberries. Show up in pajamas or lingerie and you'll be sipping $3 cocktails all night long. Doors open at 9 p.m. at Suede, 7333 East Indian Plaza in Scottsdale. For details call 480-970-6969. - Michele Laudig
Horde Have Mercy
Fashion show launches new magazine
Like any group of creative people, a local fashion community comes together organically, through common interests -- and that usually means slowly. But Phoenix fashion designer Angela Johnson decided she'd speed up the process by becoming a publisher.
Together with her friend Daisy Rast, Johnson recently launched LabelHorde, a compact bimonthly directory of local fashion players.
"We started it as a way to bring together everyone in Arizona that is involved in fashion, from designers to models, fashion photographers to hair and makeup stylists, and everything in between," says Johnson, who admits her goal is to create a fashion industry "in hopes that, one day, Phoenix will be considered a fashion capital," like Los Angeles or New York.
To celebrate its debut, LabelHorde hosts a fashion show and auction on Friday, November 21, featuring the work of more than 30 local clothing and accessory designers. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for the 8:30 p.m. show at The Fountains in Mesa. Tickets, $15 to $100, are available in advance at www.labelhorde.com. - Michele Laudig
