Declared as a collaborative show celebrating the collision of music, art and fashion, the event You Can’t Handle the Youth, presented by the fashion label Dirtysix on Thursday, Nov. 11 at the Shore Ultra Lounge in Long Beach, recognized and promoted artistic entrepreneurs and business owners from the area.
The nearly 300 people in attendance had the opportunity to marvel at artworks from local artists and to visit a vendor village where various entrepreneurs from Long Beach displayed their products.
The highlight of the evening was the runway show presenting clothes from Moxi Streetwear, the first line associated with rollerskate wear, and Dirtysix, a women’s “underground” streetwear collection, both designed by Charlene Pack. “(Dirtysix) is a mix of rock ‘n’ roll, underground art, graffiti and tattoo.” Pack says Dirtysix is a pro-female collection for women, designed by women, to empower women.
