South Meck students to have 60s-inspired fashion show at Bechtler

Courtesy of the Bechtler.
A group of South Mecklenburg High students are taking a retro fashion show --  with a modern twist -- uptown tonight. In their Apparel, Interior Design and Art classes, they've worked for the few past months to create fashion and interior design pieces inspired by the late 1960s.

They'll show it all off this Tuesday night at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art uptown, called "Modern Runway." The pieces will be a contemporary take on the style of the late '60s.

The theme stemmed from the museum's current exhibition, "Modernism in Changing Times: Works for 1968." To get an  idea of what the late 1960s were like, students studied the exhibition and events of 1968.

Doors open at 6 p.m. to view the interior design vignettes, and the catwalk begins at 6:30 p.m.
