March 12-19

Various locations

For some tips on the best bets for Midwest Fashion Week, I defer to IBJ Style columnist Gabrielle Poshadlo, who offers these choices:

On March 14 at Lucas Oil Stadium, “Monday Night Fashion: Where Sports and Fashion Collide.” This event is anchored by a runway show featuring sports and active wear, along with casino games and virtual racing. Colts alumni Ken Dilger and Tarik Glenn and the Colts cheerleading squad are scheduled to sign autographs. Colts Vice President Kalen Irsay hosts.

“Emergence: The New School of Midwest Fashion Student Show,” at the Madame Walker Theatre on the 15th, features fashion students from five universities showcasing their collections.

On March 19, celebrity designer Michael Michele (of “ER” fame) headlines a black tie fashion show gala featuring a performance by Jennie DeVoe and the work of Midwestern designers Arlinda Norris, Brittany Humble, Catou Couture and others. It’s at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. For a full schedule of MFW events or to purchase tickets, click here.
