Black Magic

Poor Mesa Arts Center. They plan to host a kickass runway show called "The Black Dialect: When Fashion Speaks." Then Game Change hits bookstores and explodes Harry Reid's awkward-yet-valid observations about perceptions of Obama's "dialect." Unreal.

Allow presenter Felix Asamoah to clarify: What's happening Saturday, February 6, is "a fashionable night out." (Not a panel discussion on cultural sensitivity issues.) We'll see vintage and new pieces from Buffalo Exchange, American Apparel, and the personal collections of some of our best-dressed locals. "Spruce ’em up and recombine," Asamoah says, into cutting-edge all-black ensembles that will be modeled by real (i.e., lusciously curvy) women.

Sat., Feb. 6, 7 p.m., 2010
