Spring flew by, and summer is halfway through, so it’s time to look forward to fall fashion.

From the standard fall fare of leopard and fur, to “normcore,” you’ll be seeing a variety of styles on runways and in boutiques near you.

Classen Curve and Nichols Hills Plaza tenants will host a First Thursdays Fall Fashion Show event at 7 p.m. Sept. 4. Free to the public, the show will be in the parking lot area at Classen Curve near Steven Giles Clothing and Blo.

Cafe 501 will provide drinks and treats. Follow Classen Curve and Nichols Hills Plaza on social media for a chance to win a VIP pass to the show and for exclusive giveaways.
