Fringe Prom: Purple Rain at Fringe Central (6510 Santa Monica Blvd.) 

June 22nd at 8pm

This year’s Fringe prom theme, chosen by the #hff16 community, is Purple Rain. Adorn yourself in your finest purple, lavender, violet, and indigo shades for a night inspired by the artist Prince. Purple not your favorite color? The iconic film was released in 1984, when New Wave 80s fashion was at its most ruffled glory. Watch this space (and the tag #hffprom on Twitter and Instagram) for costume ideas!
