FASHION | Rochester Fashion Week 

Rochester puts its most fashionable foot forward in the kick off of the 2015 Rochester Fashion Week, a week of runway shows and fashion events, at the Tents on Main. The week began Tuesday, October 13, with a fashion exchange where participants were encouraged to bring used or new clothing with an opportunity to trade in for other clothing.

The week continues on Wednesday with "Fashion 9 to 5." Beginning at noon, a lunchtime runway show will feature business apparel, daytime dresses, and day-to-night looks. Wednesday night will also feature "Puppy Love" at 7:30 p.m. where dogs and models will be dressed up and walk the runway. On Thursday at 8 p.m., "Midtown Funk" will feature emerging designers and an ebony fashion show in collaboration with the Memorial Art Gallery, which launched the exhibit "Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair." "We Are Family" will premiere on Friday at 7:30 p.m., celebrating families of the community on a multi-generational runway. "Saturday Night Fever" begins at 8 p.m. on Saturday: The finale show will bring classic glamour and an energetic dance theme to the runway. An after party will follow.

The week concludes on Sunday, October 18, with a Boutique Crawl from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. This gives participants a change to take advantage of deals and purchase and article of clothing they saw modeled during the week.

Tickets for each event range from $10-$100 and can be purchased at Wegmans. All events are located at The Tents on Main, 275 East Main Street, across from the Sibley Building. For more information, visit
