According to Crystal Charity Ball’s Ten Best Dressed Fashion Show and Luncheon Chair Robyn Conlon:
“The Lanvin 2012 Fall Collection will be presented at the annual Ten Best Dressed Fashion Show and Luncheon on Thursday, September 6th at Neiman Marcus Downtown. This is very exciting news as Lanvin’s lead designer, Alber Elbaz, is celebrating his tenth anniversary as Paris’ oldest (and currently the hottest!) couturier.
“This year, we are also especially pleased to honor Gene Jones, a former Hall of Fame Honoree and longtime Crystal Charity Ball benefactor, as our 2012 Honorary Fashion Show Chairman. There have only been three Honorary Chairmen in the history of the event — Margaret Hill, Nancy Dedman and Annette Simmons.
“For 38 years, Neiman Marcus Downtown has graciously underwritten all facets of our Luncheon that honors The Ten Best Dressed Women of Dallas. This recognition applauds women with a sense of style who are also deeply committed to community service.
“Because of the generous support of Neiman Marcus, all proceeds of the event support children served by our 2012 Crystal Charity Ball Beneficiaries: Jubilee Park & Community Center; Letot Girls’ Residential Treatment Center; North Texas Public Broadcasting – KERA; Our Lady of Perpetual Help School; Retina Foundation of the Southwest; Voice of Hope Ministries and Wilkinson Center.
“Each purchaser of a Platinum Ticket, Platinum Circle Ticket, Patron Table, Platinum Table and Platinum Circle Table will be invited to the exclusive Platinum Circle Patron Party. Michelle and Houston Hall will host this special evening on Wednesday, September 5th at their beautiful Volk Estates home. We are fortunate that J.P. Morgan is sponsoring the party.
“Donors at the $2,000 ticket level, and above, will receive an invitation to the Platinum Circle Dinner. This elegant seated dinner party will be held on the evening of Wednesday, August 29th at Abacus Restaurant with Comerica generously sponsoring it. Abacus is closing their restaurant just for our patrons on that night!
“A handful of tickets are available by calling the Crystal Charity Ball office at 214.526.5868, ext. 25.
“We hope you will join us for a very special fashion day! Thank you for your generous support . . . we look forward to seeing you in September!”
