Here is a snippet from the press release sent out about the event, I couldn’t have said it better–
On Saturday, June 21st from 5pm to 11pm, Harriet’s Alter Ego will host this season’s first Backyard Couture – an event that allows customers and neighborhood residents to shop and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Attendees can purchase one-of-a-kind pieces from designers, enjoy complimentary drinks, view art and listen to live music. This installment of Backyard Couture will feature Born As A Raggamuffin (an edgy women’s line created from recycled materials), JunkPrints (high-end, limited edition graphic t-shirts for men and women), National Society of Soul (jewelry and accessories crafted from yarn) and Jypsea (high-quality hand-crafted leather handbags and accessories). Other event highlights include a backyard barbecue, beauty makeovers, an auction of 10 limited edition couture pieces, a photography exhibit, performances and a sound set by DJ lynnee denise. This installment of Backyard Couture is also being produced in conjunction with Make Music New York, a free city-wide live music celebration.
