Condomonium 2016April 16, 2016, 7:00 pm-10:00 pm
Choices will hold its 4th annual Condomonium fashion show featuring clothing and accessories made entirely of condoms at Playhouse on the Square on Saturday, April 16th 7 – 10pm. Featuring designs from such venerable institutions as the Memphis College of Art, Memphis Fashion Week, University of Memphis and Rhodes College accepted a challenge to create an original design using a decidedly unusual set of materials – male and female condoms!
Their finished designs will be modeled on Saturday, April 16th from 7 – 10 pm as part of “CONDOMONIUM,” a special event and fundraiser hosted by CHOICES, a non-profit reproductive and sexual health clinic. The party will feature food from local restaurants, specialty cocktails, beer and wine, and a chance for guests to vote for their favorite designs. Admission price is “Pay Your Age” with a maximum of $50 per ticket.
“CHOICES is a leader in the reproductive and sexual health care community,” said Rebecca Terrell, the organization’s Executive Director. “Memphis has very high rates of HIV, STI’s, and unplanned pregnancies. This event is designed to fight some of the local stigma around condom use, to get people talking about condoms and to not shy away from something that can help to protect their own and their partners’ health and future.”
CONDOMONIUM will take place at Playhouse on the Square, 66 S. Cooper Avenue in Midtown Memphis. Tickets are available online at MemphisChoices.org, or on a space available basis at the door with an additional $5 charge.
