Get your holiday party face on with hip-hop music, models, and certified-gold recording artists 8-Ball & MJG. Orange Mound's finest aren't actually scheduled to perform at the second annual Hip-Hop Meets Couture Fashion Show, but, as specially invited guests, who knows? When collars pop and the runway catches fire, on Saturday, December 1st, at downtown's Central Station, these local legends may find themselves irresistibly drawn to the mic. Trenyce (pictured), the big-voiced Central High graduate who parlayed her fifth-place on American Idol into a career as an actress and recording artist, is slated to host and perform. Other performers include Pistol Peete, Erika Michelle, Holiday da Hustler, and Choir Boy. And if that's not enough to shake your jingle bells, the world-famous Beale Street Flippers will be hanging out and defying the laws of gravity.
Fashion segments will be provided by an array of designers and clothiers from Memphis, Atlanta, New York, and Chicago. A portion of the event's proceeds will be given to Freddy Hydro's Toys in the Hood Foundation. Guests are encouraged to further support Hydro's project by bringing at least one toy.
