Fashion-forward Brooklynites kicked off the borough’s 10th Fashion Week with a sneak peek at some of at Kings Plaza’s hottest new threads on May 1. Models strutted down the runway wearing outfits from about 10 different retailers as mall-goers took a shopping break to look down onto the runway from the floors above, said the event’s publicist.

“The event was great, drew a huge crowd into the mall,” said Amore Leighton Black. “People were crowded looking over the balconies to watch the show.”

One of the event’s special guests was fashion guru and Queens native Samantha Cobos, who appeared on the show “Project Runway Junior” during its inaugural season. Kings Plaza awarded Cobos with an $1,000 scholarship during the event to aid in her fashion endeavors, another organizer said.

“She’s very fashion-forward being that she was on Project Runway, so Kings Plaza wanted to recognize her efforts,” said Dawn Simon.
