Some of you may be aware that Bridal Market went down in NYC a few weeks ago. (For those of you who aren’t aware, Bridal Market is when designers debut their latest lines!) Lucky for us Southern gals, the ladies of Tre Bella are bringing a little of the fashion fabulousness to North Carolina! They’re hosting a fashion show at the gorgeous, brand-brand-brand new NC Museum of Art next Thursday, May 6.
The event begins at 6:30, with mixing and mingling, hors d’oeuvres, and a signature drink until the runway show starts at 8pm. Couture gowns by LOTS of SW favorites will be featured, including Melissa Sweet, Junko Yoshioka, Priscilla of Boston, and Lela Rose!
Attendees will scoop a fabulous swag bag, which might include a little something from your favorite Southern magazine editors… just sayin’.
You’ll also have the chance to enter a raffle for a fabulous Manuel Mota gown (the Salisbury, in fact), as well as an awesome overnight package at the O Henry Hotel in Greensboro and a series of dinner-for-two gift certificates around the Triangle. Proceeds go to Dress for Success, an entirely worthy cause.
Last but certainly not least, Carol Hannah Whitfield of season six Project Runway fame (any other fans out there?!) will be on hand to send her latest bridal collection down the runway. This is a major coup, as Carol has been receiving tons of press lately for her designs, and just recently debuted her line at Bridal Market! Carol will also be hosting a trunk show at Tre Bella on May 7 and 8, so if you love her designs, make sure to book an appointment ASAP!
Tickets are $25 and available for purchase here. I’m planning to attend — hope to see you there!
