The Friends of the Southfield Public Arts will host an Art & Vintage Fashion Show fundraiser on Friday, May 31 from 7-9 p.m. at the former Skyline Club located on the 28th Floor of 2000 Southfield Town Center.

The event will feature a vintage fashion show with eleven models from the Southfield A&T Dance Team. The Team will model over 40 articles of vintage clothing from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.  The couture is on loan from Fantoni vintage clothing store located in Berkley at 4105 W. Twelve Mile Road.  The outfits that will be displayed were previously sold in several former Detroit iconic stores such as Hudson’s, B. Siegel, Winkelman’s, Himelhoch’s, Jacobson’s, Bonwit Teller, Claire Pearone, and Surwin’s.

Six local artists will also showcase their work including Priscilla Phifer, Rosemary Summers, Samah Kthar, Reggie Singleton, Lionnel Hurst, and Brian Nickson as well as several vintage clothing, jewelry, and art vendors.  

Pre-sale tickets are $50 available through PayPal at or by check made payable to Friends of Southfield Public Arts.   Checks can be mailed to the City of Southfield, c/o Mayor’s Office, 26000 Evergreen Road, Southfield, MI 48037-2055. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets will also be sold at the door for $60. All ticket purchases are a tax-deductible donation. 

The Friends of Southfield Public Arts and the Southfield Public Art Commission have commissioned world-renowned Mexican sculptor Sebastian to create a “signature piece” in Southfield for the Nine Mile Corridor Connectivity, Recreation, and Placemaking Project that extends from I-75 in Hazel Park to I-275 in Farmington Hills.  Sebastian’s masterwork will stand 98 feet tall at the intersection of Nine Mile Road and Southfield Freeway. All proceeds from this event will help support this important community placemaking and signature destination project.
