Weren’t able to make it to New York Fashion Week this year?

Luckily for you, one Grand County nonprofit is adding some local flair to fall fashion this year.

The Bridge Grand County is holding its second annual Real Women Fashion Show on Oct. 26 at the Grand Park Community Recreation Center in Fraser.

The event will feature vendors from Grand County businesses from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Local stores will also participate in a fashion show at 3 p.m.

Marjorie Cranston of Jackstraw Mountain Gallery in Grand Lake said last year’s event was very entertaining.

“I was really surprised at the numbers of boutiques and offerings of Grand County stores,” Cranston said.

The event will raise money for the Bridge Grand County, a local nonprofit that provides mentoring and other resources for women in Grand County.

“We’re basically a group of women who just have a passion to mentor other women,” said Valerie Whitford with the Bridge.

The event is a great opportunity to get the word out about the Bridge and even attract new members, Whitford said.

“We come from all walks of life,” Cranston said. “We have women with lots of stories to tell and lots of experiences and so the more women that know about us are either going to be able to plug in and mentor or plug in and be mentored.“

Tickets for the event are $25 or free for those 18 and under.
