The mother of all North Texas fundraising fashion shows — The Crystal Charity Ball Ten Best Dressed Fashion Show — kicked off with something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue on Friday, September 15, at Neiman Marcus Downtown.
The old was the tradition of Crystal Charity Ball partnering up with Neiman Marcus for the 45th time to raise funds for Dallas County children’s nonprofits.
The new was two-fold — new NM President Geoffroy van Raemdonck charming all with his Belgian accent and the Oscar de la Renta 2018-2019 Resort Collection on the runway from Oscar co-creative directors Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia.
In the borrowed category, Nancy C. Rogers borrowed the Zodiac Room for her by-invitation-only, pre-fashion show reception, turning it into a whimsical garden with Oscar fashions blooming and Cristal flowing.
And as for the blue, it was true blue, a feast of fashion both on the runway and in the crowd including 2018 CC Chair Claire Emanuelson, 2018 CCB Ten Best Dressed Chair Heather Esping, Oscar CEO Alex Bolen with his wife/Oscar’s stepdaughter Eliza Bolen, Australian jewelry designer Margot McKinley, former First Lady Laura Bush, Annette Simmons and scads of others.
