OSSINING, N.Y. – The first Ossining Fall Food & Fashion Show takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24, in Market Square, next to the Ossining Farmers Market.
The town is home to one of the longest-running farmers markets in Westchester County, as well as a flourishing creative culture. This event aims to reach out to the regional farmers, designers, entrepreneurs, community activists and others who gather in Ossining. Market vendors will join in, too, to present their autumn crops and foods on the promenade.
Several area fashion purveyors are confirmed to participate, including Bob’s Army and Navy, Hot Societé, MARCH of Briarcliff, Lilian’s Youth Center, O’Sendy, Club Fit, Nu’Me, and Shine Salon, among others.
The show will also parade new styles from young and emerging Westchester designers. The models, to be clothed in the top looks of Fall 2015, will represent a wide swath of Ossining, such as the Ossining Police Department, the Village of Ossining, the Ossining PTA, local businesses, and more. Mayor Victoria Gearity, Village Manager Abe Zambrano, and other elected fashionistas are also confirmed to walk the runway.
The Ossining Fall Food & Fashion Show is being produced by Down to Earth Markets, in partnership with community supporters. Risko Music will provide the event sound system and music, and Mike Risko will serve as the Master of Ceremonies.
The Ossining-based reusable bag company, ECOBAGS, the Fashion Technology and Design program at Westchester Community College, and Southern Westchester BOCES, are also contributing their expertise.
