In anticipation of the upcoming Mia exhibition Botticelli and Renaissance Florence: Masterworks from the Uffizi, there is much to celebrate as this year’s exciting fundraiser coincides with the Friends’ 100th centennial. The Friends are looking forward to hosting a fun and stylish in-person afternoon celebrating fall fashion and the vibrant Twin Cities community.
Guests will enjoy preshow bellinis and pastries in the Thomas Barlow Walker Gallery before the models hit the runway. The fashion show will be produced by Galleria Edina and stylist Grant Whittaker. A post-show celebration sponsored by Artful Living will follow in the Regis Fountain Court and Marvin and Betty Borman Gallery. Afterward, guests will be ushered to the reception hall for an Italian-inspired luncheon.
Fashion show attendees will be able to reserve a ticket to the preview night for Botticelli and Renaissance Florence: Masterworks from the Uffizi on October 15 at the $100 presale price. (This discount cannot be applied to previously purchased tickets.) Attendees will also receive a discount code for one free exhibition ticket.
Friday, October 7 | 10 a.m.
