If you're still thinking about attending Friday night's fashion show, "Imagine," at the Crest Theatre, I just got word that there's a smattering of tickets still available. (Smattering meaning slim and few.)

The complete title of the show is "Imagine: Where Fashion, Art & Music Unite," and will put on by the less-than-year-old International Academy of Design & Technology school in Sacramento. (Read my recent story on the school here.)

"Imagine" will feature nine student collections, including those by local luminaries Richard Hallmarq and Dee Aguilar, and student Jeremiah Hill (pictured).

The show, which is set to hit the runway at 8 p.m., will be jammed with a variety of other artists. Check this out:

It will be hosted by Naima Mora, Season 4 winner of "America's Next Top Model," and will showcase appearances by Jack Mackenroth, a contestant on this season's "Project Runway"; Maneca Lightner, cover model for the R&B group "Madhouse," and model Nyabel Lual.

Musical guests include DJs Billy Steele and SpekrFreks, and recording artists Armstrong Jr. and Carmen Xtravaganza.

Tickets are $20 general and $50 VIP at R5 Records, the Crest and Tickets.com. Proceeds to benefit CARES, the nonprofit Center for Aids Research, Education & Services.

FYI: Check back here, at 21Q on Friday, for a pre-show interview with "Project Runway's" Mackenroth. We'll see just how "fierce" he thinks winner Christian Sirano really is!
