Downtown Fashion Runway Show Highlights Our Comeback

Downtown Springfield Inc. and President Abraham Lincoln Springfield – a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel are showing off the trendy fashions of our downtown merchants at a runway show timed perfectly for your fall shopping sprees. Trendy, classic, casual, eclectic — you can find it all. Women’s, men’s, kid’s — in the last few years, our stores have dialed up their fashion options for you and the price points are divine.

In 2012, the CLUE Group did a market study of downtown Springfield for us and reported that we had a serious lack of women’s fashion choices. Our entrepreneurs responded to the demand, and today you can see many trendy ensembles in the store windows downtown. Plus you get the curation and customer service that only a downtown shop can provide. That’s why we’re hosting a fun night of downtown fashion to highlight what you may not even realize is available in the district. Say you’ll be there on Facebook>

We’re tired of downtown fashion being the best-kept secret in Springfield and we’ll let it all out on the runway!
