If you're always up for a one-of-a-kind shopping opportunity, grab your wallet: tomorrow is the Textile Art Alliance's Wearable Art Fashion Show & Boutique at the LaMalfa center in Mentor. TAA, an affiliate group of the Cleveland Museum of Art, promotes interest in the textile arts and encourages further understanding and appreciation of textiles by offering lectures, workshops and exhibitions. The group's programs are open to the public, and for a $5 admission, the annual show and sale offers an opportunity to shop table boutiques featuring everything from accessories to coats and evening wear. ($45 advanced reservations included access to a preview sale, luncheon and runway show. If you missed the boat, mark your calendar for next year.) The event is a fundraiser to purchase textiles for the Cleveland Museum of Art.
The public portion of the event runs from 3pm to 5pm at LaMalfa, 5783 Heisley Road, Mentor.
