Are you tired of wearing the same old rags and want to find a new look? The Pins & Needles Fashion Design Competition showcases six emerging American designers in a friendly competition showcasing their best new work. It's a St. Louis-heavy show, with Marcel Coleman Jr., Richard Cotto, Morgan Mason and Wiki Wang all representing the Gateway City. Laila Fattal (Brooklyn, New York) and Nashville's Andrew Clancy also compete for the top spot, which includes $15,000 in prizes. Alexis Cook, winner of the 2015 Pins & Needles People's Choice award, debuts new work outside of the competition as well. Pins & Needles takes place at 6 p.m. tonight at Majorette (7150 Manchester Road, Maplewood; www.brainchildevents.com). Tickets are $25 to $35.
