Fashion Week of Rochester is an annual four-day event held each October to showcase the local fashion and boutique scene. Activities include a Switch & Swap, where participants can trade used clothing; three runway shows; and a Boutique Crawl.
The primary focus of Fashion Week, however, is as a fundraiser for the Center for Youth. While most fashion weeks tend to be elite affairs, the Center for Youth, in reflection of its mission, intends for Fashion Week of Rochester to be accessible to everyone. This is seen in their selection of venues and affordable ticket prices.
The 2013 Fashion Week included shows at The Factory at Russell Street, Third Presbyterian Church and the Temple Building. Celebrities Tommy_Lee and Shannon_Elizabeth appeared as special guests.
Past and present participants include:
