Town & Country And Highland Park Village To Host Two Days Showcasing The Best Of Fashion And Art Benefiting TACA

AUG 27, 2013 BY

Town & Country simply oozes class, elegance and exquisite taste. Its pages are filled with the most incredible places and faces. It seems like no one ever has a split end, wrinkle or thread out of place.

So, it’s no surprise the world-class experts in the publishing world would team up with Highland Park Village,TACA and Tolleson Wealth Management for two days of fashion including T&Cs “first-ever” Style Spy: Dallas.

With T&C serving as the “premier” media sponsor, you just know what that means. Their touch will set the mood, pace and style of each step. HPV will be the playpen in which all the fashion perfection will originate and take place. And guess who will benefit from the fundraising? Yup, TACA. As for Tolleson, they’re the presenting sponsor.

On Tuesday, October 1, T&C Style DirectorStellene Volandes and Beauty Director Jamie Rosen will host “Style Spy: Dallas,” an exclusive fall fashion trends presentation “curated specially for the needs of Dallas women.” Afterwards the crowd “will progress to select designer boutiques” in the Village. Sorry to report, but this is an invite-only event.

But the good news is that next day, Wednesday, October 2, the T&C team will be on hand for “Montage: A Celebration of Art and Fashion” that will take place at the Village Theater. It will be a presentation of fashion and the arts under the skillful direction of Jan Strimple. According to sources, the fashion show will feature “looks from top designers juxtaposed by thrilling performances by some of Dallas’s finest artists.” Afterwards, the guests will party in The Mockingbird Room. Only problem is that the audience is limited to 160, so tickets will be few and gobbled up fast. They’ll be online for purchase on Monday, September 9. As soon as the link is available, we’ll post it.

And, of course, such a fashion celebration requires equally celebrated fashion types as honorary chairs. No problem! HPV First LadiesElisa Summers and Heather Washburne will fill that role nicely.
