The 2016 edition of Syracuse Fashion Week concluded with the Reclamation Runway show, housed at Upstairs at the Dinosaur.

A $50 admission fee provided a prelude of music from local rock group The Degenerators, while attendees enjoyed a spread of food provided by Dinosaur Bar-B-Que; followed by the show itself.

The show featured cancer-related clothing worn by models that have or have had cancer. Syracuse Fashion Week teamed with Stupid Dumb Breast Cancer — the brainchild of Ann Marie Giannino-Otis, a local initiative to bring awareness to breast cancer and to raise money for cancer research — to bring the event to fruition.
