The Hygienic festival long ago expanded beyond the confines of a single space and a single genre.
Now, related events pop up around New London that deal with theater, stage performances, rock concerts and fashion.
The latter brings us to this year's Fashion in the Ballroom. The event, happening Friday in the Crocker House Ballroom, showcases designs by Susan Hickman, Cristin Gallagher, Christina Dempsey, and Susan Gorra. Expect some musical performances as well.
