In partnership with Emerald City Events, downtown Kirkland will be host to a Fashion Walk from 5 to 7pm and a Fashion Runway Show from 7:30 to 9pm. The Fashion Walk is an open house of participating merchants and will be a great opportunity to learn more about new trends in fashion, hairstyles, and accessories. A map will be advertised in downtown storefront windows and at the Chamber website identifying participating shops. The evening will culminate with a runway show sponsored by The Spa at PRO Sports Club. A large tent will be set up between Milagro Cantina and Hector’s restaurants at 150 Lake Street. Beginning at 7:30, individuals who purchased tickets for the fashion show will be treated to hors d’oeuvres from Hectors, champagne, wine, gift bags, and a runway show with models dressed in clothing and accessories from Via Lago,Champagne Taste, Kate Mensah Designs, Blue Luna, Hepburn, Sweet and Sassy, Seattle Thread Company, Seduce Boutique, Lake Street Diamond Company, Serendipity, and other local merchants. Hair and makeup will be done by Bella Sirena and The Spa at PRO Sports Club. A limited number of tickets to the fashion runway show are available for $100 each. A VIP experience option is also available. A portion of the proceeds will go to support the Washington Scholarship Foundation, which helps fund the Miss Washington Pageant.
