On Saturday, October 17 , 2009, Brooklyn Artillery dons its most impractical stillettos as fashionistas and designers from all over Brooklyn take over Artillery’s two floor art fair with sumptuous adventures in apparel and jewelery. Up-and -coming and established designers will present an open-air fashion show in Castle Braid’s courtyard, while gloriously outfitted models wander throughout two floors filled with curations by Brooklyn galleries. Pose for spontaneous photoshoots on the swingset and hammock while you make life-or-death decisions about next season’s wardrobe. The evening will be complemented by live music and performance, and free refreshments thanks to our lovely sponsors.

Donations and ticket proceeds from Fashion Artillery go towards buying a holiday gift of warm winter clothing for each student from M.S. 347 through the YMCA’s after school program. What could look sexier on you than good karma?

BROOKLYN ARTILLERY is our answer to the art fairs of Basel and Armory, but more than that – the name covers a cache of ongoing creative events and happenings that will take place throughout the building and neighborhood in general. The galleries of the Williamsburg Gallery Association, Greenpoint Open Studios, Chez Bushwick, and independent curations will populate the open apartments and chic garden duplexes of Castle Braid with works by up-and-coming and established artists.Yoga and dance workshops, film festivals in Castle Braid’s new mini-theater, screen-printing parties and figure drawing sessions are just a few of the treats in store in the year to come. www.brooklynartillery.org
