What is being dubbed Newport’s fashion event of the summer is coming this Saturday and fashionistas across the region are anxiously awaiting the chance to don their best duds the oceanside fete. Au Courant: An Evening Too Marvelous for Words, unfolds at Ochre Court and will feature eight of New England’s top fashion designers, including Jonathan Joseph Peters, Avni Trviedi, Jessica Abernethy sending their head-turning Resort Collections looks down the runway. While sipping cocktail amid the backdrop of the sea, attendees will be able to see the looks up close and buy directly from the designers. The event, organized by the stellar team behind StyleWeek (Providence/Northeast and Miami), benefits Child & Family. “StyleWeek is thrilled to partner once again with Child & Family for Au Courant,” says StyleWeek founder (and all around amazing gal!) Rosanna Ortiz Sinel. “Newport can expect to see progressive, creative and talented collections on the runway as well as have a personal experience with the designers who have so perfectly made StyleWeek what it is today. We are elated to share this experience with Newport, where art and culture is part of its foundation.”
Child & Family’s Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Keith Tavares, agrees, adding, “Whenever you put the City of Newport together with fashion and style in order to create a social event to benefit families in need, the outcome is bound to be a big success.” For tickets and information, call 401-848-4150 or visit www.childandfamilyri.com.
