Redux Contemporary Art Center moved South of Broad Friday evening for a special fundraiser at the Mary Martin Gallery of Fine Art. Invasion featured limited edition prints created by Redux artists, and it attracted a well-rounded crowd of hot scenesters. Later that evening, some of the Redux attendees traveled to what felt like the other end of the universe — Mt. Pleasant's Brickyard Plantation — for the Quiksilver and Roxy fashion show, which was staged at Elysium Salon. The front of the salon was flanked by an enormous barbecue spread while a live skateboard demonstration took place outside the salon's back door. Inside, a crush of scantily-clad people navigated the dimly-lit venue and jockeyed for a spot at the bar. Familiar faces included DJ Moo Moo, who is cooking up a birthday celebration that promises to be one of August's hottest parties, and DJ James Belk. Mash-ups are my current obsession and someone spun some incredibly hot tracks as the models strutted down the catwalk. E-mail me that AC/DC track, please!
