Getting plastered on a ‘hutong catwalk’

Last week, I wrote about a then-upcoming fashion show by Plastered T-shirts , which celebrates things Beijing – Yanjing beer, 1.20 Xiali taxi rides and the subway, among others (see A party that fits to a T). Organizers promised free beer and wine for those donning Plastered wear and yours truly can confirm that this, indeed, was the case.

I’d guess several hundred people were on hand to enjoy those beverages and a “hutong catwalk” fashion show made possible when a car miraculously broke down nearby and blocked traffic. While music throbbed, a half-dozen models took to the street to strut a narrow path between cheering onlookers for about a ten-minute show that delighted a mostly expatriate crowd, amused some of the locals, and angered several cyclists. Ah, such is the hutong fashion world…

I’m too sexy for this shirt…

Clothing the masses can afford…

I wouldn’t be caught dead in that skirt…

Note: Nanluoguxiang has an amazing number of bars and methinks a fact-finding trip is in order. If anyone can point me toward some of the better spots — Candy Floss is on the list already — I would be much obliged.
