2022 HOF Fashion Show pays tribute to the past generations

CANTON — Fashions have changed over the past 59 years, but the excitement around the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s entrenchment fashion show hasn’t changed.

The inaugural event of the Enshrinement Festival, the fashion show grew from 300 guests to nearly 3,000.

After the rally was canceled in 2020 and changed to 2021, guests were welcomed Friday in an indoor format, including a seated lunch, at the Canton Memorial Civic Center.

“After two years of uncertainty…there is no theme more fitting than ‘Toasting to Tradition,'” event chair Jill Hetrick told guests. “This (event) is shared by generations of grandmothers, mothers, daughters and friends.”

This year’s parade featured men’s, women’s and children’s clothing from boutiques and national department stores.

2003 Washington High School graduate DJ Freddy B sets the tone at the 2022 Professional Football HOF Enshrinement Festival Fashion Show Luncheon at the Canton Memorial Civic Center.

Host Stephanie Haney, digital anchor and legal analyst for NBC 3 in Cleveland, moderated the event. Going back to Canton during the Hall of Fame festivities and seeing the blazers, she says, means she’s home.

The 2003 Perry High graduate was a member of the Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Queen’s Court in 2005.

Haney was joined by DJ Freddy B, a 2003 Washington High graduate, as he spun tunes throughout the show.
