Fashion Week of Rochester launched in 2010 to engage the community in a three-day event that would spotlight local designers, boutiques, businesses and artists while shining a light on youth homelessness. Now in its sixth year, Fashion Week expands to five runway shows over the course of six days (Oct. 13-18, 2015) and continues to bring awareness and financial support to The Center for Youth’s homeless programs, so no child or youth in our community is faced with an uncertain, unstable or unsafe place to live.
Fashion Week 2015 will include five runway shows, a boutique crawl and a fashion exchange where people can “upcycle” their gently used clothing and accessories. Each runway show will feature different themes, styles, vibes –
even four-legged models!
“We try to re-energize the city with exciting, surprising and creative events each year while refocusing the community’s attention on our youth,” said Elaine Spaull, Executive Director of The Center for Youth.
