Fall marks not only the beginning of the harvest season, but also the beginning of the new year in the fashion calendar, making a winery an ideal venue for a fall fashion show, no?

Janine Aquino, Erika Dellatorre, and Erica Zurmehly certainly think so. They’re the trio behind Camelot Couture, a runway show that will take place Sept. 28 at Camelot Cellars Urban Boutique Winery, at 958 N. High St. in the Short North.

“I personally have always loved fashion since growing up in New York,” said Aquino, owner of Camelot Cellars. “Once we renovated Camelot Cellars into this modern vintage, Tuscan winery, I knew I wanted the space to host all types of events.”

From the beginning, Aquino wanted to tie a charity to Camelot Couture and since the recent passing of her beloved cat, Malinka (aka M), she thought it would be great to have the show’s proceeds benefit Colony Cats & Dogs, a local no-kill shelter.

Camelot Couture will showcase 12 ready-to-wear ensembles: eight womenswear looks and four menswear looks from Short North boutiques Jinny and Brigade, as well as online boutique StoreyHorse Vintage.

“The clothing will consist of warm, rich colors in bold and luxurious fabrics,” said Dellatorre, one of the show’s two stylists. (Zurmehly is the other.) “Guests can expect to see everything from denim and pantsuits to day dresses and luxe fur coats.”

Columbus-based Honey Rose & K will provide jewelry, and headpieces and fascinators will be provided by Reynoldsburg-based CommunioN {millinery}. The models’ hair and makeup will be done by Columbus’s Cut N Blow and Mukha Custom Cosmetics & Medi-Spa with Leigh Ann Ehmann, respectively.

The Camelot Couture VIP Reception begins at 6 p.m. Attendees will receive a complimentary glass of  wine provided by Camelot Cellars and appetizers courtesy of Gahanna-based Laura’s Catering.

Doors open to the general public at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

VIP tickets (limited to 30) cost $75 per individual, $140 per couple. General admission tickets cost $50 per individual, $90 per couple.

Tickets can be purchased online at CamelotCouture.eventbrite.com through Sept. 27.
