Alleyhouse Entertainment presents the fashion event “Polaroid Beach” on Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012 at New York Avenue Beach Bar from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. featuring a performance from critically acclaimed soul garage band, Black Alley.
This exclusive event will gather the top influencers in music, fashion, art and photography to converge on the most-talked about outdoor concept bars in the DMV area. “Polaroid Beach” will be hosted by award-winning fashion writer Fashion Citizen and Clothiers Mila & Fire. Renowned photographer, Thomas Sayers Ellis, has been commissioned to capture visuals from the event that will be included in the “Polaroid Beach” coffee table book, which will be released Spring 2013.
When discussing the inspiration behind the event concept, Alleyhouse Entertainment founder, Omar Kashif, explains, “I was inspired by the concept of ‘DOWNTOWN 500′; a crew of NYC kids including artist Jean-Michel Basquiat that were known for having a major influence on the music and arts culture during the late 70′s and early 80′s. Based on their story, I was compelled to recreate those moments in present time by merging the best of DC’s fashion, art and music industries for an event. I want to get folks together in our element, get good stills shots that will share the story of the experience and add Black Alley’s one-of-a-kind sound as the musical backdrop. This event is my effort to capture history.”
