Runway Lights Fashion Show

Registration is now CLOSED for Runway Lights Fashion Show 2018. Please mark your calendars for Runway Lights Fashion Show 2019 on April 6.

This year, you can be one of the first in St. Louis to be in-the-know about upcoming styles. Runway Lights Fashion Show, held at Union Station on April 21, 2018, is the can't-miss fashion event in St. Louis this year. Doors open at 10:30 a.m.

Featuring fashions from world-famous designers on the region’s top models, Variety the Children’s Charity of St. Louis’ Runway Lights Fashion Show is modeled after those you would find in New York. This year’s event will showcase designs from none other than the fashion powerhouse that is Ralph Lauren. 

Ralph Lauren, whose name is synonymous with American lifestyle, timeless design and impeccable quality, is a cultural icon who has built the Ralph Lauren Corporation into one of the most successful companies in the world.

As the first designer to produce a complete lifestyle vision, Mr. Lauren has created a global brand featuring apparel, home, accessories and fragrances. From humble beginnings selling ties out of a single drawer in the Empire State Building in 1967, Mr. Lauren has cultivated the iconography of America, redefining a style of luxury that is recognized and coveted around the world. These timeless styles will be on display at Runway Lights.

To top the show off, Ameren Power Kids will join professional models on the runway to demonstrate their power wheelchairs and to model their own Ralph Lauren fashions. 

The event also features an elegant luncheon created by local chef, Greg Maggi, followed by a live auction that includes a custom piece of jewelry by designer Adam Foster, plus fashion experiences and exotic trips. Variety Women lead the effort to raise funds for Variety's TherHappy Kids program. 

Chaired by Thelma Steward, Runway Lights Fashion Show is underwritten by the Steward Family Foundation and World Wide Technology, and supported by Neiman Marcus. Because of their generosity, all proceeds from the event benefit Variety the Children's Charity of St. Louis. Variety assists children with special needs in the St. Louis area with necessary medical equipment, therapies and programs needed to reach their full potential.
