FASHION IN THE FIELDS
November 7, 2021; Noon-2:30
We are fashioning a fabulous party next fall for fashionistas looking for a dash of glam and a luscious nosh on a casual Sunday afternoon while paying homage to our nation’s veterans. We will also be honoring Elizabeth Dwyer, a Board member who was so dedicated to our work and loved this event. The 2021 annual Fashion in the Fields Brunch and Fashion Show at Hope Farms will feature Texas-born designer Lela Rose and checks every box to keep you safe and entertained while raising critical funds to fuel our work.
Early supporters of Fashion in the Fields will be invited to an exclusive private styling event with Lela at Hope Farms during the fall of 2020. Produced to the highest health standards for distancing and numbers, guests will have staggered arrival times and appointments to enjoy the World of Lela in the safest, most unique setting on the farm, feted with Lela’s signature cocktails (thanks to Tito’s), bouquets of field-grown flowers from Flower Child, a chic boutique of fashions, jewelry and gifts and a delightful private brunch.
This Texas two step, involving the 2020 private experience and our traditional, stylish, casual bigger event in 2021, are both chaired by Sippi and Ajay Khurana. The 2021 celebration will kick off with Tito’s signature craft cocktails and Lela Rose’s Fall designs presented in the rustic boho Gathering Barn. A delicious Sunday brunch follows and the relaxed day is capped off with music, farm walks and activities designed with something fun in mind for everyone. Guests can explore the farm grounds and catch up amid fresh air and outdoor fun.
