Fashion of the Decades

A century ago, the Omni William Penn Hotel opened its doors in downtown Pittsburgh. In celebration of its 100 year anniversary, the hotel lobby will be transformed into the Grand Dame Runway on Thursday March 10th. Beginning at 6 pm, the runway will feature fashion trends of the decades starting with 1916 when hemlines started getting higher (scandalous!), highlighting iconic styles from the 1950's to the 1980's, and ending with the trends of today. Outfits worn will be provided by Carabella of Oakmont, Chico’s of Ross Park Mall, and No. 14 Boutique of Lawrenceville.
