Fourteen local models graced the runway in 26 different looks, showcasing the wide range of styles available along Encinitas’ main street. There were classy designer looks composed of recycled clothing, bright-colored beachwear from the latest spring/summer collections, and one-of-a-kind couture ensembles specially created for the show.

Before the show approximately 150 guests enjoyed a reception catered by five local establishments, including the Encinitas Station Farmers Market, as well as wine and beer. Guests also had the opportunity to have their photos taken on the red carpet and to bid on items in a raffle benefiting the CRC.
