Gallery5, Rumors and CECO Studio Present:
Model Citizen

Gallery5 is excited to announce the first annual, Model Citizen. This two-day event and month long exhibition will showcase the best of Richmond’s fashion industry and seeks to inform the audience of the abundance of local talent and offerings. This exhibition is created to encourage our community to support their locally owned businesses by shopping locally. The event will feature runway shows, student design work, exhibition openings, craft vendors, musical performances, and more - highlighting our favorite boutiques and fashion designers. According to show coordinator Casey Longyear from Rumors, "I wanted to really display elements that are the heart of this city regardless of age or interests. This fashion show recalls the history of the city, recognizes the beauty of the river and parks, pays attention to the dirtiness of the streets, and showcases the ability to express yourself.
