In its 12th year, Fashion Week Rochester returned to the Dome Arena in Henrietta to highlight local & national designers, retailers, community leaders — and talent.
The annual fundraiser for The Center for Youth raises funds and awareness for youth homelessness, youth shelters, and emergency programs.
The pandemic canceled Fashion Week Rochester in 2020. This year’s celebration relocated to the Dome Arena in Henrietta, a venue that provided over 250,000 vaccination shots to residents of the greater Monroe County region.
Saturday evening, Fashion Week closed with the “Light Up The Night Finale Runway Show.”
“Rochester really showed out in their support for The Center for Youth,” said Elain Spaull, executive director of The Center for Youth.
“We even sold balcony seats,” Spaull said when mentioning fashion week’s grand finale.
Center For Youth Services includes support for families and children, including two Crisis Nursery locations, Chrysalis House for parenting & pregnant teens and their children, LGBTQ & trafficked homeless residence, multiple youth shelters, and more.
