The Rossland Art Gallery presents an evening of Art and Fashion this Friday at 7 p.m.

Mapleloop Boutique, a new online clothing store owned by Rossland’s Genevieve Fortin, will unveil spring and summer collections as models bring clothing to life down the runway.

“This is not going to be your typical cat walk, it’s going to be Rossland style,” said Fortin.

Art for People artists Martine Bédard and Andy Holmes will also showcase their work while Gabe Gaudet and Sue Pepin will be testing the acoustics of the old Bank of Montreal.

This promises to be a fun night with the Rossland Trail Roller Girls working the bar, promoting West Kootenay Roller Derby’s season-opener this Saturday, April 13 at the Rossland Arena.

If the Kootenay “laid-back lifestyle” has you attending other events Friday night, drop by the gallery Saturday (10 a.m.-1 p.m.), where all paintings and clothes will be for sale on site.

Mapleloop continues to offer shopping evenings in Rossland on a monthly basis. The store that views fashion as wearable art for strong and independent women features designers that support fair-pay and environmentally-friendly manufacturing practices.
