Fashion week in the big apple had nothing on Yukon at the Style on 66 event on Saturday, April 9 at the 10 West Main Event Center.
Some 125 people attended the sold-out event, said Style on 66 event coordinator Desiree Reid.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the turn-out,” said Reid, owner of and Urban Boondocks Market. “This was a Main Street retail shop promotional event that expanded to include eateries, photographers, make-up artists, and hairdressers.
“It celebrates why Main Street is the heart of our community.”
Yukon Main Street’s third annual fashion show and brunch festivities included wine and pizza from the Flower Shop Pizzeria and Winery.
“We also had a dessert bar donated by seven Main Street eateries,” Reid added. “Attendees were able to get a taste from one or all of the desserts.”
As Style on 66 attendees stepped-in the door, they were able to purchase mimosas from Yukon Main Street Board Director Conrad Dudderar and Board Member Stephen Kerr and his wife, Jessica.
Local acoustic musician Colton Blake donated his time to the event by performing a few numbers.
Boutiques participating in the fashion show included Avery Joe’s Boutique, Found Love Bridal Consignment, Mirror Mirror Boutique, Little Collective Co., Urban Oak on 66, and Urban Boondocks Market.
Event sponsors included The Flower Shop Winery and Pizzeria, Colton Blake, 10 West Main Events, Frontline, Yukon’s Best Main Street Association, Yukon Route 66 Main Street Association, and Yukon Parks and Recreation.
Afterwards, the attendees participated in a “Shop Hop,” where they shopped at Main Street businesses that hosted drawings, special sales, and prizes.
