Couture & Cocktails

September 30, 2012


The Women's Board of The Joffrey Ballet hosted COUTURE & COCKTAILS a night of fashion, cocktails, auctions, dinner and dancing. The annual COUTURE & COCKTAILS was co-chaired by Kristina McGrath for the third straight year, and Sonya Y. Jackson. This glamorous fall event featured internationally known fashion designer and Joffrey Women's Board Member, Pamella Roland DeVos, and a dramatic runway fashion show co-presented by Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue showing her Spring 2013 line. Along with cocktails and creative cuisine, guests enjoyed a silent by Luxury Garage Sale and live auction and, of course, dancing with Joffrey company members. The event took place in the newly completed McGrath Acura of Downtown Chicago along the shores of the Chicago River, providing the perfect setting for the dazzling evening. The new showroom was transformed by the talented design of Ivan Carlson into Chicago's hautest fashion event of the year. As an additional benefit for all attendees, some of Chicago's most popular Food Trucks offered their fare during the Dance Party, while guests boogie the night away with the Joffrey Company dancers. The event launched The Joffrey Ballet's 2012-13 season.
