Fashion Runway Birthday Parties

Walk the Runway in the Most Unique Birthday Party Ever!

FashionRunwayOur Fashion Runway Birthday Party (ages 6+) is quite an event! Our facility is set up into various stations: Hair, Make-up, Nails, Glitter Tattoos, Styling, and Accessorizing. Children visit each station until they are completely ready to hold their very own fashion show. The lights go down and the music comes on as the Birthday Girl and her friends walk in their own private fashion show on our 24′ foot light-up raised runway! A photographer photographs each ‘model’ and each attendee leaves with their own runway photo. We provide the decorations, paper goods, goody bags, and all supplies. All parties take place in our Midtown or Merrick locations.


TherunwaybirthdayHow it Works:

Guests spend about fifteen minutes at each station working with one of our stylists:

  • Hair – Children can choose from a variety of fashionable styles and up-dos
  • Make-up – We provide make-up application; eyeshadow, lip gloss, and blush
  • Glitter Tattoos – These fun tattoos last about 2 weeks or come off easily with rubbing alcohol
  • Nails – A fashion show is not complete without manicures. Our nail art stylist will paint and decorate guests’ nails
  • Clothing Styling – Our stylist will help party-attendees choose up to three looks. Our collection of stylish dresses have been altered to fit all sizes
  • Accessory Styling – What good is a dress with-out proper accessories? Our Accessory stylist will help children choose jewelry and bags to go with each outfit
  • Runway Lesson – Party guests will learn how to walk the catwalk and pose pre-show
  • Runway Photo – each child gets a runway photo to take home that day

Once they’re all ready it’s showtime. Fashion shows last 15-25 minutes and all parents are invited to pick up early and watch the show!

Perfect for Ages: 6+
Group Size: 10-20
Time: 3 hours (includes time for cake and food)

We also offer a “mini” runway party, see below.

Runway Party FAQ’s

1. Why is your runway party so pricey? Our full runway party includes set-up and breakdown of a very heavy 28′ Lucite runway with lights, a skirt and a ton of set-up. Both runway parties also consist of a large team of staff who actually work in the industry. One runway party has a staff of at least seven people. Our runway parties are always a huge success and everyone has a blast!

2. Are your costumes cleaned? Yes, our costumes are steam cleaned prior to every party. We also ask that guests wear tank tops and leggings underneath all costumes.

3. Do party guests share hair accessories or combs? No, we do not have any hair accessories in our accessory wardrobe – we don’t even have earrings! Our hair stylist will use a different comb on each guest.

4. Do the party guests share makeup applicators? No, our makeup artist will use disposable applicators on each guest and clean non-disposable brushes in between each use.

5. Can I request a specific song for the Fashion Show music? Absolutely!
