The one thing you should see at FAT this week

Alternative Fashion Week (FAT) kicks off tonight, which means it is time for the city to take in some of the world’s experimental fashion, photography and art. We think FAT fashion can be rather hit or miss, and we’re fairly certain there’s nothing that can be done with PVC that we haven’t already seen before, but there’s often one gem in the mix that’s definitely worth a look. We’re excited to see Quebec-based label Zent, a menswear brand with an overt European bent (fits are fairly snug) that adds a touch of playfulness to contemporary menswear—its spring/summer 2011 collection “Fun and Games” used board game accoutrements as its inspiration. Zent will be part of a runway group that starts at 8:05 p.m. on April 26 at 213 Sterling Road.
