The Salt Lake City Fashion Stroll will hit the runway on Friday, June 17. The highlight of the show is a design competition, challenging eight Salt Lake Community College Fashion students to make outfits inspired by flavors like citrus, acai, kiwi and passion fruit – all found captured in full color in bottles of Glaceau vitaminwater.

“The SLCC students are busting out their best ideas to create outfits you don’t just see but can almost taste and smell,” says Matt Monson, SLC Fashion Stroll director. “Colors like orange, pink and purple that are found in healthy drinks will inspire the students. A panel of local celebrity fashion folk will judge their creations and the grand prize is . . . well a grand.”

Fashion Stroll is a street festival that celebrates local clothing and creativity. With live runway shows at 7:30, 8:30, and 9:30 p.m., and artist booths offering locally-made clothing and gifts, Fashion Stroll is a free and fun way to get to know the city’s budding fashion scene.

Fashion Stroll organizers are switching things up this year. The 7:30 p.m. show will consist of local fashion made by popular cut and sew designers including Danny Nappi, Rachel Hayes, Mary Rino, Suzanne Clements and Jordan Halversen. The second show will showcase the vitaminwater -inspired competition. The show will close at 9:30 p.m. with a vintage show featuring real women and men from the community as models. Vintage boutiques and designers including Misc., Retro Rose, Consignment Circuit and Cory Bushman will be included.

Entertainment will round out the evening with blues music by Christian Coleman and dance by Transfusion Hype Dance Company.

The SLC Fashion Stroll is sponsored by vitaminwater, SLUG Magazine, In This Week, City Weekly, The Downtown Alliance and  For more information about the event visit
