In Dallas it’s known as the Tutu Chic. In Fort Worth it’s called the Caren Koslow Fashion Show. Both fundraisers for Texas Ballet Theater are held during the days just following Thanksgiving and before Christmas festivities swing into high gear.
In years past the Stanley Korshak fashions have been modeled by TBT ballerinas. But after a year’s hiatus, a change of clothes has taken place. Instead of Korshak, the ballerinas will be wearing fashions provided by presenting sponsor Neiman Marcus.
According to NM Group VP/Market General Manager Mary McGreevy, “Neiman Marcus is thrilled to serve as the presenting sponsor for Texas Ballet Theater’s annual holiday fashion show fundraisers. This year, we look forward to celebrating the magic and love of the holiday season more than ever, especially through cherished partnerships and events such as this.”
While Dallas’ Tutu Chic on Tuesday, November 30, at the Winspear will be co-chaired by Janet Rice and Capera Ryan, Fort Worth’s Caren Koslow on Thursday, December 9, at Bass Performance Hall will have Liz Fleischer and Lauri Lawrence as the co-chairs.
As Capera put it, “It is so exciting to partner with Neiman Marcus for the first time for these annual events. This year is sure to be a special celebration as it is the arts that have kept us inspired during the recent challenging times. It is an honor to co-chair this chic luncheon and celebrate the ballet and the wonderful patrons who support it.”
More details are in the works, so stay tuned.
