Ryan Kwanten hosts Akiras fashion show tonight.
  • Ryan Kwanten hosts Akira's fashion show tonight.

On True Blood, ditzy but hunky Jason Stackhouse is partial to tight, short-sleeved shirts or no shirt at all, but the actor who plays him, Ryan Kwanten, apparently likes shirts well enough to host Akira's latest fashion show, Dusk Until Dawn. It starts at midnight and features looks from William Rast, Dorsia, and Bed:Stu. Doors open at 9 PM at Enclave.

Krista K hosts a trunk show for clothing line Clu and jewelry by Lana (aka local designer Lana Fertelmeister) on Friday and Saturday; get 20 percent off when you buy two or more items from the lines.

Don't plan on driving down Division this weekend: the annual Renegade Craft Fair is taking over the blocks between Damen and Paulina. There's always some interesting jewelry and fashion amid the cloth totes and printed tees, as well as music, raffles, and interactive booths.

It's supposed to be hot all weekend, but the best motto for autumn and winter is "be prepared." Art Effect is offering a free scarf with the purchase of a coat through September 20.
