The annual COUTURE & COCKTAILS was at the beautiful and historic Park West. Co-chaired by Sonya Y. Jackson for the second year in a row, and Kathleen Henson, this glamorous fall event featured a coalition of couture and dance. The dramatic full-runway show showcased designer pieces from Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue and mesmerizing Joffrey costumes from the past, present and the future, such as Juliet’s nightgown from Romeo and Juliet, the Snow Queen’s and Prince’s costumes form The Nutcracker and even selected pieces from the recent Russian Masters program, Le Sacre du Printemps.

Along with cocktails and haute cuisine, guests enjoyed an all-digital auction and, of course, dancing with Joffrey company members. The event launched The Joffrey Ballet’s 2013-14 season.
