Fashion Fun

In the category of “there should be more events like this in Madison” was Atticus’ fall 2008 fashion show last week. Owner Kristin Wild dished up some hot looks that she’ll be carrying this fall including those ever-popular leggings, tunic-like tops, a full skirt, delicate, feminine blouses, skinny jeans, men’s cardigans, T-shirts and much more.
The store’s sensibility is basics that are stepped up a notch. Stuff like a long, fitted, striped cardigan teamed with skinny denim and cute platforms. Or a cute dark denim mini paired with a beautiful black party top and edgy booties. Guys were dressed casually but in a laid back, yet still thoughtful, way.
The models were friends of Wild’s and all did a stellar job selling the looks. In fact a few pieces were bought after the show, according to Wild. The intimate venue (the store) was perfect for audience members to view all of the looks up close and personal.
And in true celeb fashion, all attendees got a goodie bag filled with fun stuff like samples of her apothecary items, a notebook, a Samantha Ronson CD and best of all—a gift certificate for the store.

Atticus, 18 N. Carroll St.204-9001.
