vohr_spring_showThe Village of Rochester Hills Spring Fashion Show at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan featured new Spring arrivals from ten retailers of the Village of Rochester Hills.  The main focus on the runway were individual retail Spring arrivals and trends. Many of the ensembles displayed pastels, flower patterns, color blocking trends, trench coats, colored jeans and fun accessories. Each of the retail stores involved in the show had its own Spring flair. A bonus show by fiber artist, fashion designer and celebrity stylist, Cynthia LaMaide, wowed the crowed by starting the show (which she also styled) with her hand-made collection. Each piece was made by Cynthia herself specifically for the Rochester show.

Saturday, September 15th from 8am-1pm we will be turning the VillageTealto raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer.

"Little is known by the public about ovarian cancer.  Because there is no routine screening, it is so important to know the symptoms," stated local survivor and co-organizer, Michelle Shepherd.  "It is just a fun day for the whole family where we will share what to look for and how to be aware for earlier detection. This year we celebrate seven years doing this great event for the community."
