Scottsdale Peek into the Past: The Sunset Pink Fashion Show

Scottsdale cultivated its reputation as a fashionable community. The Sunset Pink Fashion Show, held on Main Street in 1951, was sponsored by Goldwater’s department store and the Salt River Project.

The show was so named because the Harper’s Bazaar models arrived in Arizona on the Sunset Limited train. Camelback Inn’s white donkey, Snowball, looks very fashionable, too.
