What:           Celebrating its 24th year, this fabulous and fun party
 has been an ongoing fundraising event sponsored by the Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. Monies raised grow and maintain A Woman’s Garden, a major garden at the Dallas Arboretum.   

          Over 600 guests, some from as far away as California, plan their trips to Dallas not only to take part in the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party – many in wild and wonderful over-the-top hats  - but to view the glorious springtime azalea displays and flowers that grace the arboretum during the Dallas Blooms Festival.


Event:           
          Event includes champagne reception in Ginsburg Plaza, professionally staged and choreographed fashion presentation produced by Jan Strimple, followed by a seated luncheon. Hats are judged in different categories. Winners are announced at the fashion show and strut the runway.

 

Fashion Show:  Produced by the imitable Jan Strimple, the show features fashions from:

 

Forty Five Ten: The name of the store and its McKinney Avenue address. It has become Dallas' premier boutique destination with an international reputation of offering the "best of the best.”  A European-influenced emporium, complete with a tearoom, beloved for its exquisitely selected clothing, accessories and beauty products.

 

Cicada: Emphasizing classical styles complemented by a distinctly contemporary sensibility, exceptional materials, and painstaking construction, Cicada Collection is dedicated to a highly edited personal style. Its ever-evolving, multi-label selection encompasses a group of over 20 small independent labels from all over the world.

 

Betty Reiter: The 18-year-old namesake boutique is nestled in Preston Center East and boasts a bright red door that marks the spot for clients all over the country. Her merchandise includes an exclusive variety of European lines including Krizia from Italy, Annette Gortz, and Basler out of Germany, and Yeohlee, a crisp and masterfully constructed line out of New York. She also carries handbags, evening bags, and fine costume jewelry (including a large selection of clip earrings). Her love of texture and fabrication along with her eye for design and unique silhouettes are evident in her always-changing inventory

 

V.O.D is a low-key, upscale boutique located in Victory Park. V.O.D. specializes in small, special designer labels from around the globe, and clothing and accessories come from New York, Paris, London and beyond. Most labels are exclusive, so you're sure to find pieces here you won't see anywhere else.
