Cross Keys Fashion Week

Although the main event doesn't begin until Saturday, Cross Keys Fashion Week—featuring runway shows, sales, food, and live music—kicks off in just two days.

Unfortunately, you will have to wait until Saturday to enjoy the newest collection from the luxury handbag designer line, Love, Alex at Ruth Shaw's trunk show. The boutique will also be celebrating its 40th anniversary!

And don't miss the latest fall fashion trends from Ruth Shaw, as well as The Store Ltd., The Pied Piper, Chezelle, Jones and Jones, and Jean Pool, which will be featured in Saturday's runway shows from 12-4 p.m.

On Saturday, you can also expect to see local vendors selling produce, flowers, pumpkins, jellies, honey, etc. at the shopping center's Fall Artisan Market (usually hosted by Williams-Sonoma on every third Saturday of the month), along with baked goods from The Vintage Baker Jeanne Whelan Fitzgibbon.

Other food and drink options will be catered by The Village Square Cafe (free samples) and The Radisson Hotel (cash bar).

Be sure to bring any used clothing (in good condition) to the Suited to Succeed table, which will make donations to local women seeking self-sufficiency.

The event is free and open to the public.

For updates, more information and a sneak peak to the trunk shows that have already begun at Chezelle, Jones and Jones and Octavia, visit the shopping center's Facebook page.
