Austin, the land of creative collaboration and side-projects with soul, was introduced to Velvet Dust Wednesday night, a new quarterly online magazine focusing on fashion and photography.

The Palm Door hosted a young, hip crowd that danced the night away to classics by The Cure cover band Love Cats, posed in a theme-appropriate photobooth, showed off bold style statements, and reveled in all things free-spirited.
