Everything but the Girl will host the premiere ofBlk Sheep, a new Sarasota T-shirt company that targets hipsters of all ages. Blk Sheep was started by Ringling graduate Spencer Wohlrab after he went through a series of unfortunate events in his life and decided to channel his emotions into design. After showing some of his designs to his friend Katrina Costedio, who happens to own a design firm, she decided to help him turn his pain into profit. Wohlrab’s mission is to “celebrate the individual while educating the masses on the importance of design and its impact on culture.” Blk Sheep has teamed up with Everything but the Girl owner Laura Daniel Gale, who will now carry the new clothing line in her store. The premiere will be from 7-9 p.m. Saturday, May 9 at Everything but the Girl located at 430 Central Avenue in the Rosemary District. DJ Permitted will be spinning some beats and local fashion designer David Marmon will introduce his “David Marmon for Blk Sheep” dress. Refreshments will be served and the after party is across the street atSarasota Olive Oil Company for some live music with singer/songwriter Vin Lamar.
