The Row Fashion Shows on the Outdoor Runway, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Start or end your evening celebrating style on The Row with free outdoor fashion shows every 30 minutes. Models will walk down the main street of Santana Row on a raised catwalk that runs from Madewell to LB Steak. Fall favorites from a designated store will be featured every half hour.

In between, fashion revelers can pop into the in-store parties going on near the runway at retailers and be part of special style presentations and parties in various stores, all free and open to the public. Participating stores include Anne Fontaine, Gucci, Calypso, Madewell, Splendid, Free People, Furla and Franco Uomo. The in-store parties will include DJ’s, window modeling, cocktails, trunk shows, discounts and more.

A special media area will be set up at the end of the runway with seating for reporters and bloggers and a riser for photographers. Please contact Donna Kato for more information.
