Charleston Cycle Chic is hosting an open call for their upcoming Cycle Chic fashion show as part of an event dubbed "The Bike Brew Haha."
In all 20 cyclists with a sold fashion sense are due to be featured (yes, men and women, young and old.)
First, about the event:
The event is being held to, "celebrate the progress we’ve made toward a more bike-friendly Charleston." There will be music, beer, local food trucks, bike polo, and a bicycle fashion show at the Maritime Center in Downtown Charleston on Thursday, September 8, from 6 to 9:30 p.m.
If you'd like your bike and fashion to be featured, from the organizers:
"To apply to be a part of the fashion show, take a photo of you, your bike and the outfit you would wear and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org before August 27. Ladies – we encourage you to look lovely, and men – how about being dapper? But most of all be yourselves. This fashion show is all about the bike so make your ride look great and feel free to accessorize. We prefer bikes from local bicycle shops since we try to support our local businesses.
"Your time commitment is minimal since all you have to do is respond to a few emails, then show up (on your bikes) to the party at 5PM for a dress rehearsal and stay on to have fun! In return, you’ll get one drink ticket, a free Charleston Moves t-shirt and some great photos of you.
"Send the following to email@example.com 1: Your Full Name; 2: Contact Email and Phone; 3: Bicycle type and where purchased. For example, a Biria Bike from Affordabike; 4: A color photo of you on your bike."
They'll let you know who is selected on August 29.
