Ragtag's Couture in Columbia, High-Fashion Fundraiser

On July 17 at 7:30pm, join Swank Boutique and My Sister's Circus for Ragtag's Couture in Columbia, High-Fashion Fundraiser and opening night for Valentino: The Last Emperor. Ragtag's Big Theater will be transformed into a runway peppered with Columbia's loveliest fashionistas.
Come clad in your most sensational outfit and you might go home even more fashionable. Erin Keltner (Swank Boutique), Celeste Hardnock (My Sister's Circus) and your friends from Ragtag Cinema will all pick their favorite ensembles and award them glamorous prizes from the chic boutiques and downtown theater. Not up for the competition? No problem. Sit back and enjoy your complementary champagne, all of the fashion frenzy, and then a movie about one of the greatest designers in history. The film utilizes it's access to the fashion icon to the fullest, and the result is a glitzy, dishy and insightful documentary.
"Seldom has a film explored such exotica as Valentino's world--the gowns, the galas, the villas, the private jets, the redundant pugs...with such a sense of momentous drama behind the glitz."-Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

Doors open at 7:30pm, Film at 8pm.

All proceeds go to benefit Ragtag Cinema's Fund-raising Campaign. Ragtag Programming for Film and Media Arts is a non-profit organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).
