Say goodbye to that winter jacket for good (well, at least for a few months) with one of the year's most unique and steaming-hot fashion shows. ARENA Bikini: Iconoclash mixes swimsuits, music, and dance together for an unforgettable runway show. Brought to you by ARENA Dances and choreographer Mathew Janczewski, Iconoclash plays up sartorial sex appeal with distressed denim, glitter, and leather bikinis worn by models and dancers alike. Local fashion designers Allison Helliwell, Jolene Danielson of Teknodoll, and Adrienne Yancy, among others, will show off their hot new swimwear at the historic Grain Belt Bottling House in northeast Minneapolis. There will also be a cash bar with signature drinks and appetizers to nibble on during the event. Stay later for the crazy after party where you can hang out and mingle with the dancers all night long. Proceeds from the night's silent auction and fundraising benefit ARENA Dances. Tickets are available at www.arenabikini.org.
