Styled to Scare

Most of the year, fashion models are elegant things of beauty, strutting down runways in impossibly high heels. Not so on Halloween weekend. Fashion Monsters IV: A Nightmare on Mass Street, the annual fall fashion show at Lawrence’s Replay Lounge (946 Massachusetts, 785-749-7676), takes a turn toward the creepy. The event features creations by seven local designers and wares from nine area stores. Designers give the nightmarish theme their own unique spin, with well-dressed monsters shambling across the stage wearing new takes on classic scary films such as The Birds and A Clockwork Orange. DJ Iggy Baby, the Kansas City Bear Fighters, and Strong Smells provide tunes, and proceeds go to the Social Service League, Lawrence’s oldest thrift store, open since 1854. Doors open at 8 p.m., and $3 tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
