Fashion as Art is back for its third year. This year the high school students Alex Gariepy and Wylie Thornquist are organizing the event with help from Gallery 66.

The fashion show highlights creations by local high school students. This year’s original creations will take as their theme the various looks of “Decades” and will include fashion designs by over a dozen students. The enthusiasm of the show has spread and it is very exciting to report that several male students are designing outfits this year. In addition, artists have been invited by Gallery 66 to submit designs to be worn by the students.

Fashion as Art III will be at the Riverfront Gazebo at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 19. The event is free and open to everyone and is made possible through the sponsorship of the Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce and Gallery 66.
