Steel City Style

As September approaches, so too does the second annual Bethlehem Fashion Show! This year’s event, being hosted on September 22 in the Celtic Classic Grand Pavilion Tent at 5:30, is going to be an event to remember. Unlike last year’s all day affair, this year all FIFTEEN participating boutiques will present their Fall and Holiday trends in one, single epic combined show, that will certainly show that shopping local is not only great for the small businesses of the Lehigh Valley, but also great for your wardrobe!

In addition to the fifteen clothing boutiques sending looks down the runway, Bethlehem salons and accessory boutiques will be highlighting some of their favorite pieces as well, included Artfully Elegant! As for which boutique we will be paired with, well let’s just say that is a mystery for now, but looking at some of the excellent downtown stores represented, including Loose Threads Boutique, Apotheca Salon and Boutique, Sophistikate and more, there are plenty of fantastic options. Don’t worry guys – with menswear from Homebase Skateshop and Donegal Square among others, you will find plenty of styles to inspire your wardrobe as well.

Begin the night at the cocktail hour, tunes courtesy of DJ Discreet, and stick around for an amazing after party, featuring yummy treats from Yianni’s and an explosive live performance from The Waffle Stompers.  Tickets are limited and already on sale, buy yours here before they are gone! Want to reserve seating? Corporate packages are also available.  Feel free to check out the Bethlehem Fashion show on Facebook and Twitter (@BethlhmFashion) as well, for continuos updates!

In honor of the upcoming Bethlehem Fashion show, and due to the incredible fashion available in local boutiques, we are beginning a new feature called “What’s HOT to Wear.”  Each week, we will highlight a look from one of the participating boutiques, and what Artfully Elegant styles we would pair it with. Stay tuned for our first post – It will be up shortly!
