Designer Runway Shows / The Arcade / Saturday, May 7 / Various Admission Times / 7pm, 8pm, 9pm
Twelve designers from across the United States show their creations in twelve separate runway shows. As your car pulls up to the valet service on Superior Avenue… you see the paparazzi lined-up along the red carpet. You walk down the red carpet, toward the doorman, as he opens large brass doors. You enter the doors and into the labyrinth that is The Arcade; with a high vaulted glass ceiling, brass railed balconies, and a Romanesque Revival design.
You begin your immersion into an evening of fashion and style. Colored lights, fashionable people, and stylish appetizers; is the new normal.
Music fills your ears as the party begins, your eyes are drawn to the runway in anticipation of the evening’s events. As the cocktail party begins and comes to a quick end, the butler-passed appetizers all but gone, you scurry to your seat. Members of the Joffrey Ballet fill the runway. The music changes, as do the lights. Then, quite suddenly, colors and patterns flash by you, as fashion models strut like peacocks in the sun, much to the delight and applause of the audience. Hello Cleveland… it’s time to show fashion a little love!
Dress is Black-tie Tuxedo REQUIRED for $125 – $275 / Optional for Balcony Admission
ADMISSION: $55, $125. $175, and $275
