Can you hear it coming? Do you feel the storm brewing? AKIRA’s Revolution begins tonight at Crobar showcasing the hottest new street fashions by Monarchy and Creative Recreation.  Back in 2002, the brainchild of Jon Cotay, Eric Hsueh and Erikka Wang was born smack dab in the middle of Bucktown. Since then, the AKIRA empire has been spreading like wildfire. Just take a stroll down North Ave and you’ll see the blazing red awnings lighting up the block. AKIRA has given Chicagoans access to boutique fashions that keep us in a direct flow of New York and LA trends while also tossing in some Chicago hometown flavor.

AKIRA’S fashion events have earned them a reputation for not only putting on a great show, they also know how throw a great party.  Tonight’s show, The Revolution is no exception. It will definitely have something for everyone and is moving onward and upward in the true AKIRA style. Incorporating international dance troupe 2XS into the mix will kick it up a notch and ready the audience for an unforgettable event. Known for their high intensity and diverse dancing styles, 2XS will  be heating up the stage with interactive dancing throughout the show. 

Hot styles hailing from the west coast are the focus of the evening.  Gentleman, have you rolled up to the club with designer kicks on that the bouncer deems unacceptable? Tonight, check out the freshest footwear by Creative Recreation. Known for their style of incorporating the appearance and prestige of a dress shoe with the feel and design of an athletic sneaker, this Orange County bred company can make those uncomfortable confrontations a distant memory.  And have no fear ladies,  plenty of funky foot fashions await you too. 

The regal threads on display tonight are those of the LA based Monarchy clothing line. Providing a premium blend of old world style with a new school twist, Monarchy’s new collection reigns supreme. Any detailed-oriented individuals will surely dig these garments made from the finest American, Japanese and European denim. Get on up off your couches and get out on this beautiful night. This revolution will NOT be televised. Print out an invite for you and a guest at www.akirachicago.com
