Fashion and tennis have always gone hand and hand but at the Western & Southern Open on Wednesday, fashion was a major part of the schedule.
The annual "Night on the Runway" mixes tennis fans with fashion as Saks Fifth Avenue and Lafayette 148 show off the latest collections for fall. The event was a sellout packing more than 500 people into the new air conditioned tent
"The evening was a great success," said Georgette Seitz, the coordinator of Night on the Runway. "It is great to see so many people come out to support this event year after year. Night on the Runway has become a tradition at the Western & Southern Open and it would not be possible without help from all of our wonderful staff, interns and volunteers."
Cammy Dierking of Local 12 in Cincinnati emceed the evening’s festivities which benefited Tennis for Charities.
After the fashion show fans got to watch a full night of tennis including a center court match featuring the top men’s seed Roger Federer.
