Columbus-Based Companies to Host Ohio State University Fashion Show and Pop-Up Shop

Columbus, Ohio – Three Columbus-based companies will be hosting an Ohio State University pop-up shop and fashion show on Wednesday, October 9 at The Eagle Short North in Columbus, Ohio. 

The pop-up shop is a collaboration between Top of the World, Ohio State’s primary apparel and headwear licensee, Homage and Bend Active. Operated by Buckeye Corner, the pop-up will be open to the public from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. It will be housed in Top of the World’s mobile marketing trailer, making its debut that night, and will be located in Hull Alley, just outside The Eagle.  

The fashion show begins at 8 p.m. and will feature a showcase of current apparel and headwear from all three companies, as well as a sneak peek of product from future collections. 

“The pop-up shop and fashion show will provide fans with a one-of-a-kind experience to buy Ohio State apparel and an exclusive first look at up-and-coming styles that have yet to hit stores,” said Renata Kukowski, Top of the World VP of Marketing and Licensing. “We’re thrilled to include Ohio State’s official retail partner Buckeye Corner, as well as Homage and Bend—two strong local apparel companies that are well known to fans—in such a fun, high-energy event in Short North.”

The pop-up shop and fashion show will be open to the public. The Eagle Short North is located at 790 N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio.
