If you’ve strolled around San Jose’s Santana Row, you know it’s a mecca for designer boutiques and happening restaurants.
And what could be better than shopping at your leisure for an afternoon, then resting your weary feet and arms afterward at a swank table set with wine and food?
Fashionable foodies can enjoy both those pastimes at Santana Row’s “Fall Fashion in the Park” on Sept. 8. Two runway shows will take place, at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sept. 8, showcasing autumn and winter looks for men and women from Santana Row retailers.
A wine and hors d’oeuvre reception will precede the fashion show, which also will feature a private shopping boutique and post-show bash.
Meet Whitney Thompson, winner of “America’s Next Top Model,” who will lead a fashionista “walk-off” competition.
General admission tickets are $40 each. VIP tickets, which include reserved front-row seating, complimentary champagne and valet parking, are $60 each.
Contest: One lucky Food Gal reader will win a pair of general admission tickets to the 3 p.m. fashion show at Santana Row. Entries, limited to those who can make it to Santana Row that afternoon of Sept. 8, will be accepted through midnight PST Aug. 25. Winner will be announced Aug. 27.
How to win?
