Saturday marked the 5th annual Fall Runway Show at Paseo Nuevo. Some 250 guests watched the show as 27 models — including professionals, community volunteers, retailer employees, friends and family — walked the runway decked out in apparel and accessories from nine Paseo Nuevo stores.
The stores represented a mix of national tenants, local retailers and pop-ups. The show highlighted Ahtleaisure, Hottest Trends, and Holiday looks.
Sephora was the show’s beauty sponsor, creating all the makeup looks. Hair styles were created by Santa Barbara City College Cosmetology Academy students with products provided by AVEDA.
Raffle prizes and gift cards were given away and 200 gift bags were handed out during the show.
Before the show started, 30 YELP elite guests joined for a private VIP Beauty & Brunch event on the terrace. Eureka hosted the brunch and SEPHORA hosted a lip and lash bar. Other participating retailers included L’ Occitane, Saje Natural Wellness and LUSH.
