The sun is shining, flowers are blooming — and, ready or not, spring fashion season has arrived.
Get some inspiration at the French Cultural Center’s fashion show on April 5 (53 Marlborough St.), curated by style maven Lana Barakat from December Thieves boutique. Boston-based designer Christian Restrepo — also spotlighted at the Museum of Fine Arts’ new gender-bending exhibit — and Toronto’s Nuit Atelier will present new creations alongside five other up-and-coming designers. Tickets are $65 and include an open wine bar and appetizers from Cambridge’s new Colette bistro. Visit www.frenchculturalcenter.org for tickets.
Inspired? On April 6, visit December Thieves (51 Charles St.) to shop the runway looks from noon-6 p.m. There will be charcuterie, champagne, and a meet-and-greet reception with Nuit Atelier from 2-4 p.m. RSVP at email@example.com.
