Starting with some fabulous signature Cassatt cocktails and hors d’oeuvres…
Continuing the evening with a Fall Fashion presentation from Saks Fifth Avenue. I am swooning over these looks … what about you?
Ending our evening was a guided tour of the Cleveland Museum of Art from the Director of Art Studies at Virginia Marti College, Patrick Melnick. From Botticelli to Pollack. The history of art is the mechanics of Fashion and Branding: it is the marketing, presentation, selling, and licensing of a product or idea that is relevant and desirable in its time period.
And a fabulous gift from the evening was a gift card to Saks Fifth Avenuealong with some samples and other fun opportunities to try out Laura Mercier skincare! I know where I’ll be heading today!
