Fashion in the Falls, a runway fashion show, will take place on Friday, Sept. 14, from 5:30 to 10 p.m. in the lower level of the city’s Green Parking Deck, 2318 Second St.
The event will feature fall and winter fashion trends from five local retailers: b.lovely, Celia’s Boutique, Delila Grace, Tarnish Ltd., and Urban Lace. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
"We are excited to partner with our local businesses to welcome Fashion in the Falls back to our revitalized downtown," stated Cuyahoga Falls Mayor Don Walters. "This collaborative event is a wonderful opportunity to highlight some of what our retailers and eateries have to offer."
A couple of business owners along Front Street said they are looking forward to the event.
"Fashion in the Falls has become so much more than we could have ever anticipated," said Whitney Milligan, owner of Urban Lace and event chair. "With a new and unusual venue this year, we are thrilled to bring a unique event and experience to everyone who attends. It’ss just such a fun night to get together with friends, enjoy delicious food, and be able to update your wardrobe with looks straight from the runway."
"Relocating to Front Street was the best move we could have made," stated Jana Tucker, co-owner of Celia’s Boutique. "Being asked to be part of Fashion in the Falls and to get to work with this group of women entrepreneurs is icing on the cake."
A cocktail and appetizer reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the fashion show will commence at 7 p.m. John Markovic will perform live during the cocktail hour. The cash bar will benefit the Tracey Beard Foundation and will feature HiHO Brewing Co. and wine.
