Calling all fashionistas! Transform yourself into a glamorous runway model during Fashionistas Weekend at The Strong museum on Saturday, June 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, June 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. Try on dazzling outfits, visit the “make-up” studio, and consult with Kiki, The Strong’s fashion guru extraordinaire.

Other fashion fun awaits:

  • Strut your stuff on the catwalk and pose for pictures with adoring fans.
  • Design and make a wild-and-crazy, over-the-top hat.
  • Stop by the styling salon to give Barbie a new hairdo.
