Greenwich Avenue will be fashion central Friday, Sept. 5, with the return of the annual Fashion on the Avenue event.

The centerpiece of the evening will be a red carpet runway show down Greenwich Avenue between Lewis and Elm streets featuring more than 50 models from the community showing fashions from local stores. But there’s a lot more planned. There will also be a car show presented by Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich and boats presented by J. Catalano & Sons.

The show will kick off with a presentation by Equinox and the grand finale will be a ballroom dancing performance by The Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom of Greenwich. After the fashion show, many stores will stay open late offering refreshments and entertainment. First Selectman Peter Tesei, who has thus far resisted pleas to be a model in the show, will be on hand to present a special proclamation declaring Sept. 5, 2014 to be Greenwich Fashion on the Avenue Day.

The fashion show is set to begin at 6 p.m. with the parties kicking off at around 6:30, leading to a fun evening celebrating style in Greenwich. Greenwich Avenue will be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic from Lewis Street to Elm Street to accommodate the show.

The event will be hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue and will be sponsored primarily by Casablanca Polo, a Greenwich shop that designs clothing for both men and women and also has a selection of riding equipment. Other sponsors include Serendipity magazine, the official magazine of the event, along with Equinox and First Bank of Greenwich.

The Greenwich Chamber of Commerce is also supporting the event.

There will be full coverage in the Sept. 11 edition of the Post.
