Fash Flood

LOCAL FASH Calling all Queens and Mad Hatters! On Sunday, April 17 from 1 to 5 p.m., Omaha’s first public tea party will take place. Attendees are encouraged to don their tea party best, with suggested attire in the themes of everything from colonial garb to Alice in Wonderland-style costumes. The Omaha Tea Party (no political affiliation) will take place on the south side of Memorial Park, along Dodge Street. Tea and pastries will be provided, but party planners suggest bringing a blanket and your favorite teacup. NATIONAL FASH “We all get dressed for Bill,” stated Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The “Bill” she spoke of being Bill Cunningham, the 80-plus New York Times’ photographer famous for chronicling street fashion trends over the decades. BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK is a biographical documentary focusing on Cunningham’s stimulating body of work. The film premiered nationally on March 16, and will premiere locally on Friday, April 22, at north downtown Omaha theater Film Streams. If Wintour’s willingness to appear in this film means anything to you, you’re aware that it’s not a film to be missed. Go to FimStreams.org for tickets and additional information. GLOBAL FASH Some of the biggest news in fashion over the past few weeks circled around issues regarding knock-offs of some of the most iconic pieces from spring’s runways. The most obvious example at hand being Target’s Mossimo messenger bag, which appears heavily inspired by Proenza Schouler’s PS1, the must-have bag of 2011. Across the pond, Prada’s entire spring 2011 collection appears to have influenced Zara’s newest line, right down to the oversized, Twilight Zone-esque swirling on a floppy, wide-brimmed sun hat. British shoppers and bloggers documented the Prada-style pieces over the past week, sending them to online style site Fashionista.com. And finally, a nearly exact replica of Alexander McQueen’s “Four Finger Clutch” showed up in Patricia Field’s New York boutique this week. The big difference: McQueen’s design retails for $2,000 and Field’s design tops out at $60. Sarah Lorsung Tvrdik is a stylist, costumier, wife and freelance writer based in Omaha, Nebraska.
