Chic Report: The title of Elmer Ave.'s fall show was "A Night of Tragic Emotions: Hopelessness, Betrayal, Anger, Faith"--and that pretty much sums things up! The show had a distinctly goth aesthetic, from the bracing punk guitar music of The Devil's Orchestra (so loud that a set of earplugs rested on each seat) to the Edward Scissorhands hair and makeup. Major moments included a crush of hand-painted blazers, fingerless gloves, spats, graphic vests, and vampy lingerie.
