Arts In Context Shorts: Wig Party

This week, Arts In Context Shorts shows you one way to get in touch with your colorful side.

As a painfully shy child, Allyson Garo embraced theater and costuming to free her inner extrovert. Today, as the owner of local boutique Coco Coquette, Garo brings maximalist glamour to the masses. Showcasing a treasure trove of wigs and accessories, this splendid little shop helps Austinites find their inner diva.

Wig parties bring friends together to explore the art of incognito and inspire even the introverted to be flamboyant fashionistas. Garo shows how easy it can be to transform one’s self into a work of art at Coco Coquette Austin’s masquerade market.
