New Orleans is officially on the hipster map, and apparently, it's on the fashion map, too: The French Quarter (specifically, the intersection of Dumaine and Royal streets) hosts the Rock the Sidewalk Fall 2011 Express fashion show tonight at 7 p.m. (rain or shine), when Express's fall 2011 men's and women's collections will be previewed. New Orleans follows New York, Miami and Las Vegas in hosting the public, outdoor fashion show.
Express also made a "generous" donation to Dress for Success New Orleans (company policy prohibits them from saying how much), and it's pretty cool that our gorgeous city will be the backdrop for a national fashion advertising campaign. So, if you're in the Quarter tonight, it might be worth checking out. Preservation Hall hosts the after-party.
