It was a textbook night of glamour.

Models hit the runway at the Fairfield Public Library on Thursday evening, a sleek contrast to the setting’s usually quiet and studious atmosphere.

The occasion was the annual fashion benefit for the library staged by Fairfield designer Jennifer Butler, who debuted her fall collection of clothing for women, men and girls. The new lineup featured a range of brown, amber and dark blue hues, reflecting a sense of the cooler season. Many outfits also allowed for layering.

The program began early for the models, who reported to H-Salon on the Post Road for hair and makeup preparation. At the library, the models slipped into their outfits as guests arrived.

Attendees could browse jewelry by Jennifer Brown, as well as sample wine, Wild Moon liquors and hors d’oeuvres.

Sixty outfits by Butler were shown over the course of the fashion show, and proceeds raised by the event will be used to support library programs.
