If it seems that irony has been dead for long enough, get ready for a restorative dose at JACKIE 60 FURTHER'S Season Opener DONATELLITH FAIR on Saturday, September 21. It's Fashion Week, and the night's premise is a festival a la Lilith Fair, where the Sublime Divas of Fashion suddenly switch gears, hoist acoustic guitars and lift their voices in song.
Look for signature Jackie Morphs like DONATELLA MCLACHLAN, festival founder, combining the very best (and worst) of DONATELLA VERSACE and SARAH MCLACHLAN in the body and voice of transy folk sensation LISA JACKSON (1 AM.) Donatella's good friend NAOMI CAMPBELL ARIE will be served by performance artiste DERRICK IN A DRESS. This being Jackie, the girls will also be boys - including grrlrocker KAREN CURIOUS as STEPHEN SPROUTS and CHI CHI VALENTI as KARLI LAGERFELD. Other festival faves will include DJ JOHNNY DYNELL, HATTIE HATHAWAY as EMMY LOU WINTOUR and the HOUSE OF DOMINATION.
Suggested dress: Chanel guitar straps, Indigo Girls Vs. As Four, Vera Wang gowns with Erica Badu headwraps, Mary McFadden gothgirl eveningwear, Sarah McLachlan custom jewelry, recycled 7th on 6th gift bags, Versace couture with armpit merkins, crystal-studded "Take Back The Night" or Greenpeace tshirts or Prada Peasant looks.
This night marks the start of the 13th season of JACKIE 60 collaboration - a decade of weeklies through 1999, and the fluid new form JACKIE 60 FURTHER since.
