You can't fight getting older. And in the case of a boutique, there's really no reason to. No crows feet. No effects of gravity. Just a string of great memories and great people! And what better reason to throw a party.
General 54 is turning 4 years old. And in celebration, we are throwing our first annual May Day party, Saturday May 1st.
This is hopefully the beginning of a new tradition, holding as we do a particular fascination with May Day. In England, it's a day of semi-sanctioned mass unrest and the day of the worker... And then, there's the pagan side... a celebration of spring with May poles and all that (Jen is building some kind of streamer contraption). Traditionally, this is a day to go a little wild, and shake off any lingering effects of winter!
The fun starts at 9:30 with another G54 first: a fashion show. We've recruited various friends, writers, artists, and neighbourhood people to be the models. Our buddies Emily and Reeana have been building props and we can't wait to see what they come up with . Should be amazing! There will be clothes taken from the G54 designer collection along with some fun L23 vintage!
Then, the boogie times start with DJ's Roxy Moron, and Dan Laflèche with live visuals by VJ wunderkind Bearmod.
And it's all happening in the prerenovated site our latest store (still to be named) situated right next to G54 at 56 St-Viateur Ouest. Right now it's just a big empty space, so there's no clothes to mess up or art to damage.. so you can feel free to really let loose.
