Leighton W. Couture: "Je Suis Une Femme"

When: Sat., Sept. 12, 8:15 p.m. 2015

Last year about this time, Leighton Whittington raised more than a few eyebrows with “Salvation,” a début collection and (literal) big reveal spiked with Catholic references and styling choices one might label as NSFW. Far from a sophomore slump, Whittington’s follow-up sees the former ballet dancer and model spinning inspiration from Givenchy and YSL into wearable looks made from luxe French fabrics. Rendered in a palette reminiscent of the French flag, “Je Suis Une Femme” premieres at Brick with a presentation bookended by live performances of Édith Piaf classics.

Price: $25-$35
