This week is the last Thursday’s on First and 3rd of the year, so we hope you already know about some of our great partners, but we want to take the time to shine the light on WSU-Rochester. WSU-Rochester is a place where professionals can receive the programming that they need to make it to the next level in their career.

Cheers to 10 years of STYLE! STYLE will be returning on Thursday, September 28 with slight changes from previous years. Instead of STYLE on the Plaza, the event name has now been shortened to STYLE. The change of name comes with a change of location. The event will now be in the Kahler ballroom – Heritage Hall. This move will ensure the event goes on no matter the weather. This year, STYLE will be featuring clothing, accessories, and styling from 11 downtown businesses. There will be fashion featured for adults, young adults, and children.

This annual fashion show shines a light on the retail community that resides within downtown Rochester and what they can offer to the residents of downtown.

Participating businesses include:

With the help of these great downtown businesses and Lauren Scott, STYLE’s Fashion Coordinator for the third year in a row, the collections will be spectacular and will prepare you for this fall’s fashion season. Make note of any styles you love during the show because these collections will be readily accessible at each business as soon as the show ends. 

Do you want your chance to see what’s up and coming in the fashion world this fall? Check out our STYLE webpage for information on ticketing, entertainment, and the experience of STYLE 2017.

This partner has been a staple of our community and has truly helped us see the world differently, that’s right, we’re talking about The Rochester International Airport (RST)! They have been a fantastic partner and we truly appreciate the value they bring to the community as they share their booth each week for Thursdays on First and 3rd with local organizations. RST will also be at Dogs Downtown on August 6th from 11AM to 3PM talking about their new Pet Therapy Program.
