It’s fashion galore at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden this winter. On Thursday, January 23, 2014, the lush garden will become the backdrop for a runway show featuring the hottest styles from head to toe. Co-chaired by Swanee DiMare and Frances Sevilla-Sacasa, the third annual Splendor in the Garden fundraiser will begin on the sunny mosaic of the Visitor Center and will then move to the Lakeside Marquee overlooking the sparkling Pandanus Lake.
A delicious lunch by Le Basque Catering will start the fashion show off on the right note as the models walk down the runway spotlighting the most coveted looks and colors for Spring 2014. Don’t worry about waiting until these clothes hit the stores – guests can buy the looks right off the runway at the Backstage Boutique.
Tickets are $300 for preferred seating and $350 for runway seating. All proceeds benefit Fairchild’s conservation science, education, and research programs. To purchase seats or a table, please email Susannah Shubin at SShubin@FairchildGarden.org or call 305-667-1651, Ext. 3375.
