'Gilded Summer' Hits The Runway

Jun 9, 2013

The 13th Annual West 18th Street Fashion Show started at dusk on June 8, and drew a crowd of onlookers both on the street and from the windows above.

Camera phones flashed as models, wearing the creations of eighteen designers, pranced on a lighted runway in the canyon between buildings lining 18th Street. Behind-the-scenes, designers made last-minute adjustments and models primped as they prepared to mount the runway. 

In the spirit of the show's theme, "Gilded Summer," the clothing and accessories were appropriately glittery.
