CUYAHOGA FALLS — Fashion in the Falls, a runway fashion show, will take place April 28 from 6:30 to 11 p.m. at The Pavilion at Falls River Square, 2085 Front St.

The event will feature spring trends from local retailers Urban Lace, All About the Piece and Tarnish Ltd., according to event officials.

“Our goal for the fashion show is to introduce the latest spring and summer trends to the city,” said Whitney Milligan, owner of Urban Lace and event co-chair. “Momentum is building in our downtown with the opening of Front Street and as a business owner in Cuyahoga Falls, I am excited to showcase what our businesses are doing.”

A cocktail and appetizers reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the fashion show will follow at 7:30 p.m. Food will be provided by local businesses Crave Cantina and Oh So Sweet Desserts. Hair and makeup will be provided by local salon MC Hair Consultants. Featured looks will be available for purchase immediately following the show, said event officials.

“I’m proud of the collaboration between the city, Urban Lace, All About the Piece, Crave Cantina, Oh So Sweet Desserts and MC Hair, as this is an innovative way to highlight our local clothing retailers and our small businesses right here in the City of Cuyahoga Falls,” said Mayor Don Walters. “One of the greatest aspects of this city is the willingness of residents and businesses to come together to showcase what we as a city have to offer.”

Tickets cost $20 and must be purchased prior to the event. They are available at Urban Lace, 119 Portage Trail; All About the Piece, 1907 State Road; and online at www.eventbrite.com (Search Fashion in the Falls). Additional information can be found on Facebook by searching Fashion in the Falls.

“This event is an opportunity to celebrate small businesses coming together with city government in the name of fashion and sense of community,” said Susie Smith, owner of All About the Piece and event co-chair.
