It was a hot night in Eugene, as hordes of sweaty, sun-drenched, sexed-up Saturday revelers — topping off a perfect day at the Aug. 6 Whiteaker Block Party — crowded the stage for the 10 pm fashion show. All local all the time, this annual strut down the runway featured local models wearing get-ups by resident designers. Flashbulbs popped, the air crackled and you could hear the hoots of approval from blocks away. Here is just a small sampling of the night’s, um, package, which ranged from the extraordinary to the extraterrestrial, from the sleek to the downright slinky.
