Rowe Boutique hosting fall runway show
Une Soiree Intime de Style: A Fall Runway Presentation by Rowe Boutique begins at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at 211 N. Fifth St. in Columbus.
The third annual event, which coincides with New York Fashion Week, will feature 22 looks styled with pieces from designers such as Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, Smyth, Joie, Lauren Moffat, Julie Haus, Functional, and Parker.
“We produce the show and style the looks to inspire our clients and to help them try new ways of putting together pieces or maybe wearing something in a totally new way they may have never thought of before,” said Maren Roth, owner of Rowe.
“It’s certainly a labor of love between all of the girls who work at Rowe, as we have so much fun working with, and styling, the Rowe customers,” she added.
Studio Fovero will style the models’ hair and their makeup will be done by Mukha Custom Cosmetics and Medi-Spa, which created a one-of-a-kind lipstick for the show that Roth described as “a mulberry shade with a hint of raspberry.”
Attendees will be treated to a custom Rowemantic Affair nail polish in a similar shade and a look book will help them remember their favorite items, as it will feature each ensemble shown on the runway.
In true fashion week style, all the looks will be available for purchase immediately following the show− in a pop-up shop on site. They also will be sold at Rowe, located at 718 N. High St. in the Short North.
Before and after the show, attendees can enjoy appetizers provided by Barrio, Grey Goose cocktails, and music by DJ Patrick Hicks.
VIP tickets, which include access to the VIP Cocktail Reception, Diamond Cellar giveaway and reserved seating, cost $75. General admission and standing room-only tickets cost $45. Tickets can be purchased (with a check or cash) at Rowe.
The event ends at 10 p.m. and an after party will be held at Barrio, located at 185 N. High St.
All ticket proceeds benefit the Jack Roth Fund, which supports cancer research at the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard Solove Research Center at The Ohio State University, as well as Camp Netaim.
Last year’s event raised more than $3,000.
“It’s another way to gain awareness about the fund and to raise much needed dollars for lung cancer research at the James and for Camp Netaim, a camp for special needs kids in Israel− a cause my dad was so passionate about,” Roth said.
