Monday, May 11
Fashion week begins in the magical setting of Villa d'Este on Lake Como. In the episode that originally aired on October 29, 1997, Eric (John McCook) and Stephanie (Susan Flannery) worry that the delayed Forrester Spring Collection may be their last, and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) attempts to calm a distraught Ridge (then played by Ronn Moss).

B&B fans will see an episode that originally aired on April 27, 2012. As Aspen Fashion Week gets underway, Hope (then played by Kim Matula) says goodbye to Liam (Scott Clifton) as paparazzi swarm her with questions and call her a fraud. Unaware that his father's plan to attack Hope is in progress, Liam and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) talk about the memories they shared together in the beautiful mountainside town.

The fashion moments continue in an episode that originally aired on November 11, 2016. As Quinn (Rena Sofer) attempts to take the lead in the final preparations for her fashion show, not everyone at Forrester Creations is on board. Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and Ivy (Ashleigh Brewer) encourage Quinn to move forward with her original plan for the show-stopper, in spite of ruffling the feathers of Eric's family. When Katie (Heather Tom) pays another visit to Eric's home to thank him for his favor, he invites her to stay and watch the fashion show with him. As a sign of protest against Quinn, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) decides to sabotage her presentation.
Thursday, May 14 Before walking down the aisle to become Mrs. Liam Spencer, Steffy participates in a Forrester Creations photoshoot with her cousin Ivy in front of Australia's magnificent Sydney Opera House. In spite of how difficult it will be to see Brooke (original cast member Katherine Kelly Lang) with Ridge at the ceremony, Bill (Don Diamont) assists his son Liam with some last-minute wedding preparations. The episode originally aired on March 21, 2017.
Friday, May 15
An episode that originally aired on April 14, 2017, will show stolen designs in play as the Spectra fashion show is about to begin. Sally (Courtney Hope) feels pangs of guilt for betraying both Coco (Courtney Grosbeck) and Thomas (Pierson Fodé), while C.J. (Mick Cain) arrives and reminds Sally about their deal regarding the sale of the building -- if the show doesn't go well, he will be forced to sell. Bill is less than pleased with the idea when Wyatt plays devil's advocate, stating that the Spectra show could be a success.
